Thanksgiving - I’m giving thanks
This week is Thanksgiving here in the United States of America. It’s a time when we stop and give thanks for all the great things in our lives. To realign my thinking I opened a new document on my computer and just started writing down everything I was grateful for. That little exercise had a profound impact on my overall mentality and mindset.
Giving your life to your country
At the beginning of November, the dynamic of my family changed significantly. My 19-year-old brother left for boot camp with the hopes of surviving the three-month intense training process and come out a Marine. The few, the proud, the Marines.
Occupy Wall Street: what do they really want?
There seems to be no one driving desire of Occupy Wall Street – other than to change the status quo. Change is good, but shouldn’t we have an idea of what we want to change in order for our voice to be heard and actually respected?
Thanksgiving is all about people
In a word, it’s all about connections – family, friends. You can’t imagine not being with the people you love; so much so that anyone not surrounded by family and friends on the day will receive numerous invitations to join other people’s Thanksgiving festivities.
