Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is right around the corner. And then Black Friday (remember to #optoutside) and the remaining festive holidays!
However you decide to celebrate the holiday season, we hope that each one of us can take time in the coming week to rest and reflect on the many things to be grateful for. In the wise words of Maya Angelou, Be present in all things & be thankful for all things.
To kick us all off, here are the top 4 reasons we, at Vukoo, are thankful this Thanksgiving:
1. We Are Thankful for Our Health
We will be honest: sometimes we take our health for granted. Complaining about our workouts, traffic on the road, long lines at the grocery store—we’ve all done it. This Thanksgiving though, we are specifically focusing on having gratitude for our physical, emotional, and mental health. It is a blessing to get to roll out of bed each morning—no matter how early it is—and it is a blessing to be able to walk, run, drive, and even stand in long lines. We are thankful that we get to do all of these things, and we are grateful that we get to spend time taking care of our bodies by eating fresh foods and exercising.
2. We Are Thankful for Where We Live—Beautiful Colorado!
Anyone else take Colorado for granted from time to time? We are so incredibly lucky to live in such a beautiful, outdoor-minded state. Whether it be the gorgeous weather (yes, even the occasional winter blizzard!), the plentiful hiking trails, the friendly people, or the panorama of mountains, we love living in Colorado. If any state deserves recognition, it is this one!
3. We Are Thankful for Food, Family, and a Warm Home
Many of us will consume A LOT of food today—most likely in a warm home and around a large table with the ones we love. Not everyone is fortunate enough to experience this. It is important to remember to be grateful for all that we have.
4. We Are Thankful for YOU—Our Vukoo Family
Finally, we are thankful for you all. Without your continued support of the Vukoo brand and bar, we would not still be here. Thank you for believing in us, supporting us, and continuing to order the most delicious (and nutritious) meal-replacement bar on the planet!
