Ever notice how Christmas decorations go up before Thanksgiving has even passed? We respect the holiday spirit, but Thanksgiving has a tendency of getting looked over because, instead, our society looks towards other holidays; we rush for new things, rather than enjoying a day of gratitude for all that we already have.
This year, let’s try to focus on November while it’s here: the month of giving thanks. The calendar reserves for us the perfect time to celebrate and practice gratitude.
This month, we challenge you to set an intention of gratitude and to come back to it throughout November. Really lean into the season, because it will make the festivities so much sweeter. Be thankful for your family—given and earned. Celebrate your community and the farmers who work hard to put fresh food on our community’s table. Show gratitude towards each day, the good and the bad, and cherish the lessons you learn along the way.
With this intention of gratitude, we also ask you to look for things to celebrate. This is no easy feat, especially when life can quickly throw a mess at you. But when you make small changes on your outlook on life, you’ll start to notice how much you have to be grateful for, and you’ll begin to attract more extraordinary experiences into your life.
As you’re reading this, we want to express how thankful we are for you. You are the reason that Rosewood Market exists. Over the years, you’ve been right there with us in working towards a happier and healthier community. You have shared meals with us in the deli and fed your family local produce that helps our neighborhood farmers flourish. You have stood by our passion for fresh, local, and whole foods, and we can’t thank you enough. We couldn’t be here without you, and we are over-the-top grateful that Columbia has supported us for so long.
Gratitude is contagious. Pass it on, Cola.
