So, it's another bloody Thanksgiving! This year, I am taking note of what I really am thankful for and keeping in mind that nothing is quite right. The world, especially America, needs a lot of work. And I have a lot of work to do, if I'm going to get my life on the correct path and make some sort of difference. I continue to fuck up, but manage to keep learning as I go along. I think the point I need to work to stay on is to keep doing. I tend to let things pile up to the point that I get overwhelmed and therefore unmotivated to do anything about the backlog. So, I'm thankful for the realizations I've made this year and for the bit of progress accomplished. I'm happy to keep in mind my faults and how far I still have to go. I don't want to become complacent again. I'm particularly thankful that I am not alone for Thanksgiving. I have a family of sorts to celebrate it with.

I hope we all keep in mind where Thanksgiving came from, and that we can change what it means to the world. There's a huge difference between the history and the ideal. I hope society works even more diligently towards the ideal of Thanksgiving and celebrates in its own way all year round. Things can be much worse and they will, if we don't realize who and what we are and that, in many ways, we are the same. I think it all depends on what kind of legacy we want to leave behind.

I will do my best to get the work I need to do completed, so that I may one day be counted among the pebbles that started the waves of change. I don't want to be forgotten, and I want my memory to count for something decent and productive. I promise to share more of myself with the world and hope the world accepts me for who I am.

Forgive my rambling in thought, but I needed to get this down somewhere.

Happy Thanksgiving!
