FREE THANKSGIVING PRINTABLES
Greetings from Orlando, Florida! I’m here with my parents, having just arrived yesterday from freezing Massachusetts. Let me tell you, as soon as I got off the plane and was greeted by a balmy 65 degrees (65! At night!), I felt about 180% better than when I left Boston. Even though I’m going on my fourth New England winter, the prospect of snow still makes me a little queasy. I guess you can take the girl out of California, but you can’t take the California out of the girl ;)
Given the upcoming holiday, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be grateful. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the opportunity to sit down and reflect on all of the things I’m thankful for in my life. I am very, very blessed, and it feels nice to take a moment and appreciate all of the friends, family, coworkers, peers, professors, and circumstances that have made this past year one of the best yet.
However, while I was meditating on my list of reasons to be grateful, I had a thought. Wouldn’t it be nice if this annual “reasons to be thankful” exercise wasn’t confined to one holiday per year? Don’t get me wrong, my annual introspection is one of my absolute favorite parts of Thanksgiving. But I realized as I was writing my list that this is an activity that I would like to partake in much more frequently. After all, it sometimes just feels really nice to sit yourself down and be grateful for all of the wonderful things you have in your life.
With that in mind, I created a series of free thanksgiving printables that can be used throughout the year! Inspired by the printouts created by Angel and Victoria, I made some little printable cards in the spirit of Thanksgiving. They’re simple and sweet, and fit easily into a wallet. I’ve been using them for the past week as small reminders to keep my head up. Especially as things get busier and I start to have more and more stressful days, it’s been wonderful to look in my wallet and be reminded that maybe, just maybe, things aren’t as bad as they seem.
