Making This Thanksgiving One of the Best

Thanksgiving is here and everyone is busy preparing food and entertaining guests. I will admit that this time of year tends to bring me some anxiety and panic. In the past, I have set really high expectations and been extremely disappointed when plans didn't meet those expectations. This year I have made a decision to make Thanksgiving and the holiday season less stressful and more enjoyable. Here are the 3 ways I plan to make that happen:
Have Fun:
Spunk and I are going to start our day off with a Turkey Trot 5k and enjoy the weather out and about with fellow runners. It doesn't matter that we probably won't come in 1st place, we are going for the experience.
Spend Time With Family/Friends:
My family does not live close by, and boy do I miss them at this time of year especially. I have so many fond memories of doing the holidays up big with tons of food and even more laughter. Even though it makes me sad to miss out on that family time, I plan to make the most out of spending time with my kids, my mom, and our friends who have become like family to us. We will float to a few houses and then back home to unwind.
Getting out of my own way and out of my own head are the biggest obstacles for me. I know that if I set realistic expectations (or none at all), then a problem or a change in plans won't ruin the whole day. After all, we celebrate Thanksgiving as a time to be greatful for what we have; not to stress over what may or may not happen.

I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and I want to say that I am thankful for all of my readers and fellow blogging friends/contacts.
