I am not a fan of Thanksgiving - due to it's historical foundations in the oppression and misrepresentation of indigenous first peoples. The good thing is that our current celebration of the holiday is centered around a time for us to give thanks to those people or things in our life that mean the most to us (often forgotten in the daily shuffle). This includes ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us.
As I've talked about previously, our relationships are a significant part of who we are. We are social beings - and even the lack of a relationship is a relationship in and of itself. There is a tradition that many families, couples, and friends engage in when celebrating the Thanksgiving Holiday - going around the table before dinner and giving an example of what they are thankful for. This Thanksgiving, I encourage you to contemplate the following questions - they can bring you insight for yourself, and a closer connection with your partner(s).
NOTE: Some of these may not be appropriate for all family or friend gatherings... but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider their answer!
Be thankful, be merry... and remember that Thanksgiving is just one day - a reminder.
