I can’t believe I ate the WHOLE turkey!

Some personal trainer in Hawaii ate a WHOLE turkey?

I actually did not eat the whole turkey.

“I can’t believe I ate the whole turkey!” was really a little homemade paper sign that me, my kid sister, and my cousins taped onto Grandpa’s back during a Thanksgiving get together with my Dad’s side of the family in Washington State; before my sister and I moved to Hawaii.

In the 4 years since my accident, numerous people have told me on countless occasions that I’m lucky to be alive, or lucky to still be able to walk.

I came so incredibly close to death at such a young age.

Heck yeah I’m thankful– and not just today!

Every day is a day to be thankful.

Every day is an opportunity to be a good person to others and make the world a better place.

Every day is a day to be good to yourself.

Every day is a celebration of life.

Fortunately, most people don’t have to work on this day and we hopefully get to celebrate it with our loved ones; eating some really good grub and perhaps a few adult beverages.

Please enjoy yourselves–in moderation, of course. 😉

Remember, a little common sense goes a long way.

You don’t have to eat the WHOLE turkey.

May you find yourself surrounded with people that love you.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Stay Strong,
