Ninjas send turkey day tributes, expressing their thankfulness

Family is at the top of their thankful list

Lance Pekus

Thanksgiving means different traditions and activities to different people. Whether we spend the day watching football, eat turkey and take a nap, travel to visit family & friends, or volunteer in our community, most of us dedicate a few minutes to reflecting on the reasons we are thankful. The Ninjas are no different, and have a variety of reasons to be thankful.

Living in Alaska, it makes sense that Nick Hansen is thankful for coffee.

The Wolfpack Ninjas are thankful for the support of their fans.

Zhanique Lovett is thankful for her clients.

Adam is thankful for so much, with the chance for personal growth at the top of the list.

Happy Thanksgiving (& nearly Christmas!) W RLD. Not to be cliché... but whatchu guys thankful for?? Comment 1+ thing(s). Be creative. •• “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.” – Buddha. "You have no cause for anything but gratitude & joy." -- Buddha. Me, personally: 1. I'm in utter thanks for the ever-present opportunity for change, growth, personal recalibration & expansion of perspective. You can ALWAYS change, learn & evolve. Those who think otherwise will always remain the way they are, happy & thriving or not. But you must BELIEVE change to be possible for yourself if youre to achieve it. And if you're spending time around people who hold your future growth back with negative/ stuck mindsets & refusal to open their eyes to the current moment and the fresh possibilities inherent in each piece of present time, you'd best cut these people OUT. DROP them now. Or, figure out how to effectively communicate with them. But don't waste your time - there is no resource more valuable than time ("... You can get more money, but you can never get more time. " - Jim Rohn). - Also, importantly, be aware that "your vibe attracts your tribe", & if you find yourself surrounded by negative, unrealistic people holding back your future possibilities & potential, realize that you've likely played a part in bringing these influences into your life. Take responsibility, but be gentle and forgiving (both with yourself and with others). At the same time, be THANKFUL to the haters for they, too, are part of your process - says Einstein, "I'm thankful to all of those who said NO to me. It's because of THEM I'm doing it myself". Amen, Einstein♡ - 2. I'm grateful for my loving, well intending parents, family & support team of friends n' fans. I'm innumerably lucky to have y'all. Some food for thought... ;) Happy Turkeyday, fam. #FoodForThought #FeedYourMind #FeedYourSoul #NinjaMindset #Thankful #Gratitide #Thanksgiving #Family #Friends #GoodInfluences #ChooseWell

But the most prevalent theme in thankful posts among Ninjas was family. They love their parents, siblings, spouses, and children.

And, lastly, we’ll leave you with Tiana Webberley. Tiana isn’t shy about expressing the gratitude she has for her family throughout the whole year. Check out how she arrived at a family Thanksgiving a few years ago.

We hope all the Ninjas and Ninja fans everywhere had a great Thanksgiving filled with gratitude.
