Many people celebrate Thanksgiving every year with a traditional turkey. There are some people who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving with a turkey. There are some people who don’t celebrate it at all. Some people celebrate by gathering with their families and savoring their favorite seasonal dishes. Other people celebrate by appreciating their next breath of air. The growing majority that don’t celebrate Thanksgiving gain nutrients during dinner and prepare for an annual shopping spree. Truth is there are times where we need to either stop worrying about the next best deal or satisfying just ourselves; we can be selfish. We say thanks today because, in a world where we tend to lose meanings in translations and everyone practices conspicuous consumption, we often forget how fortunate we are in life. Now-a-days we scarf down our plates of chow and just wait in a line to take away from another person’s time to be grateful. Think of the people who only have their breath, be grateful for what you have, and make a difference with what you gratefully receive in life.
Is doing the right thing really the right thing to do ?
To be honest, I now know that there is in fact something much worse than not getting a message back, getting flaked on, or even being rejected; not being able to get a text or call through to someone important that would actually answer you.
Time is the ultimate "frenemy".
God made us exist so we could do just that.
So I just happened to be glancing through some of our text messages yesterday and while doing so I began thinking about how we have gone from seeing each other once a week, to every few days, eventually every day, then again once a week, and now it may be every few weeks. I asked myself, “do we go back to never?” Of course not. I bond with you because I love your laugh, I love your beautiful eyes, I love the way we can talk about the most absurd things for hours, I love how you’re absolutely selfless, and I love how we can be anywhere and I’ll feel like I’m at home. Its ridiculous how we’ve landed in that cliché position where we’re both going to be separated by a sea of cars and by popular belief will diverge to break up because of how difficult it’s going to be without that extra sublunary presence we offer each other. However, when a smile alone gets me through my days and makes me believe when things aren’t going so well all the time, I think that is something worth endeavoring to preserve. Besides, maybe now I can prove how serious I am about you. I love the spontaneity, the hugs, the kisses, and the vitality you offer. Simply put, I love you and I’ll be there for you. I’ll fight those fears away and I’ll carry any burden alongside you. You’ve made me a much stronger person, and you brought me back to life when life couldn’t bring me back. I’ll fight for what we have no matter how metaphorically bruised I’ll get along the way, because I know at the end we’ll rise above it all together. I love you Sally. Thank you for the realest 1st month I never had, lets look forward to an infinitesimally larger amount of them.
-A guy who will try his best for you
