The end of the year is the time that we step back and take stock of what we’re thankful for. No matter whether you celebrate with a big meal of special New Year’s delicacies, curled up on the couch with your loved ones watching sports, heading out to run a 5K, or maybe even doing some easygoing stick fencing fun in the backyard, the theme is always the same – we look back on the year and think about what we have accomplished and who we are. For us, that means thinking about how fencing has helped us.
There are lots of reasons that we find gratitude to be essential, but chief among them is the way that gratitude helps us to be happier ourselves as well as making the people around us happier too. The end of the year puts a welcome laser focus on gratitude, encouraging us to stop and think about what makes life wonderful.
Fencing gives us lots of things to be thankful for, and this year we wanted to go deeper into how we’re grateful for the spirit of fencing. It’s more than just competition or physical activity.
