I know a lot of people are against Thanksgiving day because of what the European colonies did to the Native Americans
Although I do not whole heartily take part in the tradition of cooking turkey and eating until you explode with your family and extended family and watching foot ball and stuff, i do like the name of the holiday
some people resent thanksgiving as a holiday where you are forced to hang out with your family or that we are glorifying what didn't happen with the European colonists and the Natives.
I wish that this was a day that we can genuinely become a family and remember what we are grateful for, the things we appreciate.
Life isn't nearly as half as bad as we like to romanticize it as, with what people saying "oh life sucks" or "life is a bitch" or whatever. Life doesn't really actually suck, no, not nearly as bad as people make it out to be
There are a lot of things that make us happy, there are a lot of things that would make everything worse if we didn't have
we take these things for granted and we don't even know it
Our friends, our family, our pets, our religion, our beliefs, our health, our material possessions. Everything is important to us and everything makes us so comfortable we don't even realize how much we really need these things
Everything from our internet connection to the sun in the sky there are a lot of things to be grateful for, there are a lot of things that we never show appreciation for.
I'm not asking you to acknowledge them on thanksgiving day, I'm asking you to acknowledge them EVERYDAY! There shouldn't be just ONE day when you are really thankful. Everyday you should remember that we all have each other and we all have our things that make us comfortable
Be thankful, be forgiving, be loving, be giving
Pay more attention on the good things and you'll be surprised how much good will always outnumber evil
On a closing note i just wanted to say how much you guys mean to me
Although a lot of you have stopped talking to me and I've noticed a decline in activity with my art and community, I still love everyone so much
thank you so much for supporting me and my art
Everyday I check deviantart and everyday I remember how much of an impact this community has made on me
so thank you all so much
and each of you individually
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER. KUNERIA OUT.
MAY THE FATHER OF UNDERSTANDING GUIDE YOU
