Here in the United States it’s Thanksgiving time—Thursday, November 23rd to be exact—and it’s a day of fantastic food feasts, with the bonus of a long holiday weekend ahead.
More importantly, it’s a time to reflect on what makes our lives so special and rewarding and what makes us thankful when we think back on the current year and the events that have shaped our lives in the recent past.
This has been an interesting year for me, a challenge in many ways, but one in which I feel healthier and more energetic than ever.
Regarding my involvement in the world of long distance running, I have a couple of new certifications—a next level coaching certification for adults that has afforded me an opportunity to coach a group of fantastic coaches. More recently, I earned an advanced certification to develop and coach youth programs.
I will finish the year with a certification to become a CPR and First Aid instructor, a golden opportunity to teach others how to save lives should the need arise.
In my world of being an author, I published a new Jon Masters novel mid-year called Imperfect Murder (order HERE) and am now in the process of writing another novel in my detective series with a storyline that continues to excite me each time I think about it.
In past years, I have written a blog about why I’m so thankful for being an author. The “perks” to being an author range from being able to fanaticize as much as I want and not be considered crazy to the fact that (according to the reviews of my books) my work entertains people.
Every day, I am most thankful to my readers for supporting and encouraging my work as an author. You continue to inspire me and I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
Happy Thanksgiving! And I wish you success at being thankful on a daily basis.
