Thanksgiving Thoughts

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving next week.

Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and 4 days off. I CAN NOT WAIT.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I like Christmas but it has a lot of stress. Easter is good too but Thanksgiving is more laid back for me. No “Will she hate me because I got her XXXXXXXXX?” It is just easier.

I will be cooking for my Dad, my brother and Not So Secret Santa. It will be a quiet day but the 4 days off is what has me totally excited.

Work has been hell. I am so busy that I never get caught up and never will. I am overwhelmed and I am having a midlife crisis at 39.

Where do I go from here?

Will I be a corporate peon for the next 40 years?

Will it ever get better?

How do I get the courage to take that one step to change?

I want to make a difference in my life. I am not in my current job. I want to help people.

  1. I love Thanksgiving too. My favorites are sweet potato casserole and the meat stuffing that my mom makes. Yummy.

    I've definitely gone through periods of my life like that too where you just don't know where to go next and it is frustrating. I find that praying and keeping my eyes open will eventually lead me to the next chapter in my life, but it can take time. It is hard to wait. Hugs.

    1. :) I don't think I have ever really known. Any place but here is my motto generally.

  2. I'm looking forward to the four days off, too--REALLY looking forward to it. I have been where you are in the job area, and I would agree with Sunny--praying and keeping my eyes open can help.

    I think it's great that you're cooking for your family. I haven't gotten there yet in my cooking.

    1. I will. The fear of the whole thing generally keeps me complacent.

  3. I love Thanksgiving too and am looking forward to a quiet 4 day weekend.

    No big family plans... I'll probably just cook for my Mom and brother.

    I know what you mean about your job. I was in the corporate world for a while and just didn't ever feel like I belonged.

    1. Thanks. I stopped by your blog as well and you might have inspired me to get the tree up after Thanksgiving though.

  5. That's a lot of thoughts.

    Honestly, Thanksgiving has me really underwhelmed this year. I'm not that excited about it, like I normally am. I'd be okay just sleeping right through the holidays and waking up in January. Or not. Whatever.
