Your story of progress in the face of challenge is beautiful and important.
May this year’s celebration be one of less guilt and more enjoyment. Fewer Thanksgiving tchotchkes and more intimate connections. Less conflict and more compassion. Fewer power struggles and more communication and collaboration. Less whirlwind and more mindfulness. May your day be full to the brim of things to be grateful for, in whatever form they come.
The moment you decide to pursue something higher than average, you choose a life that will be more challenging than average.
