The Thanksgiving ONE Thing

Updated: Oct 7, 2019

What can you do to make Thanksgiving meaningful for you?

Last week’s Weekly ONE Thing question was "What is ONE Thing you will say NO to this week in order to say YES to something you value even more?" I said I was going to say NO to TV for the week and YES to my writing projects. I did say NO to TV and I kept my commitment. However, the TV was on sometimes when my son or husband put on sports, (even when I told them I was on a TV fast), but it didn’t really matter because even if it was on, I wasn’t watching it. Saying NO to TV did free up some time, although not as much as I thought it would. I did get one of my writing projects complete and a good start on another one. I also finished reading a book and started a new one that I have been wanting to make time for. So overall, I feel like the project was a success. I think I will keep a limit on my TV consumption to only when I am working out or if it is a special time with family or a special reward for myself.
