A Girls’ Got to eat Post: Making a Case for Gorging Yourself This Thanksgiving

Hi F&F,

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I haven’t done A Girls’ Got to eat Post in a very long time. The Thanksgiving holiday seemed the perfect time to put one up. This holiday I am encouraging gluttony. I want you to gorge yourself on gratitude.

For many of us, the holidays can feel more like a pity party than a celebration. The kind of piggishness I’m suggesting can do a lot to turn those feelings around. The kind of voraciousness that I’m suggesting leads to victory.  So shovel it in; dish it out; slurp it up or scoff it down; just feast on the beliefs, or activities or people or pets that bring you joy.

If you need more convincing; here is a quick list of why your Thanksgiving table should be groaning with platters of gratitude; and why you should take delight in overindulging.

  • There is always enough to go around; whether it’s a table for one or for one hundred.
  • None of your guests will be allergic or adverse to it.
  • No animals will be harmed in order for you to partake.
  • Your spirit will expand and not you waistline.
  • It will leave you feeling energized; not sleepy.
  • There is no chance of heartburn; only lightheartedness.
  • There’s no cleanup afterwards.
  • It won’t interfere with football watching.
  • There’s no chance of chocking on it.
  • The recipe is foolproof.
  • You won’t gross anyone out when you talk with a mouth full of words of gratitude.

I’m looking for a guest blogger to post about the holidays and non-material ways to celebrate like fun, spreading joy, etc. Would you be interested? Let me know.
