Special Heirloom November (Nov. 23rd, 2017): Be Intentional, Be Thankful

Special Heirloom November (Nov. 23rd, 2017): Be Intentional, Be Thankful

Check out the Highlights of November here

Heirloom is Special once a month!


I really miss celebrating my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving, in a proper way this year. It’s not a holiday in France, but I still managed to get a few of my American friends together in the evening…

Needless to say, I would trade Christmas for Thanksgiving, anytime!

See, it’s necessary for humankind to stop at some point in their journeys and think about what it is that they’re most thankful for. Any journey, without appreciation, is not worth living. Because it’s when you stop to realize that what you have matters is when you’re in a positive mindset and can positively affect the lives of those around you…

That’s why I care for Thanksgiving. You get absorbed by your busy routine all year long and it’s nice for someone or something to interrupt it and let you reflect on that part of your life for which you are most thankful…

Every country in the world should celebrate Thanksgiving!


My good friend Jackie and I, in Northern California, 2015

If you’re wondering about the origin of Thanksgiving, it traces back to the XVII century, and it was mostly a religious celebration. The holiday became official in the U.S. in the year 1817.


What are you thankful for, this year?

I hope you all will make some time to think. Think about where you’re taking your life, what makes you tick and how you could make your life better, along with the lives of the people around you. Be intentional.

Be thankful. Take the time to count your blessings and don’t take anything for granted.

This year, I am thankful to be alive, in Paris, working on projects I enjoy with people I can relate to every day.
