November is home to one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. Now that I’m living in Taiwan, this holiday has taken on different iterations. One part that remains the same is that I still make sure to take some time to reflect on all that I am thankful for. This season, I am thankful that I have a strong support network, thankful for a career that is almost equal parts challenging and rewarding, and also thankful that I have some time to pursue my interests and hobbies, with cheerful abandon.
This month has been a particularly trying one for me and my family, and in the midst of it all, I’m trying my best to keep everything afloat. A method that has worked particularly well is to make meticulous lists of things that I have to do~ which really brings a sense of calm and order. The other method is to find a few moments everyday to do something that occupies both my mind and hands in a happy and healthy way (which really rules out sitting in front of the TV and eating potato chips!)
Early this morning, I spent a few minutes wrapping a gift for a friend’s baby, and it made me feel happy and content knowing how much she would enjoy it.
P.S.: I may have to delay my posting scheduling here for the next few weeks. But I’ll try to update when I can!
