After Giving Thanks10:52 AM
You know, I realized a trend that is happening across the social networks and in my own home. It was a trend that I noticed in myself and I don't like it. This trend has caused me to think that perhaps a name change for the day after Thanksgiving. Perhaps, we should start calling Grumblegiving or Unthanksgiving.
It is so easy to be ungrateful after a day of over eating, spending a lot of time with family, and the like. I got up this morning after not sleeping well with a sore back. As I was sitting on the couch, thinking about how awful I felt, I began to read my social network updates. Funny, many people where doing the same thing I was; grumbling. Others also had bad nights sleep, family arguments, or a scale that showed they had lost progress they had made.
Well, I am bucking the trend. I am going to swim against the flow. I refuse to join in Grumblegiving or anything like it. Today, I will be grateful for what I have and despite how I feel. I will not take out my restless night on my family, or at least that is my plan. Join me in to be Grateful even after Thanksgiving
