….Gratitude (for me) does not come from achieving things, nor is it reserved to just this lovely holiday called Thanksgiving. Several years ago when going through a period of crisis, I found myself angry, sad, disappointed, and eventually flat out depressed. My counselor charged me with finding “something” to be grateful for every day.
At first it seemed mundane, but then became like an awakening as it began to elevate my attitude as I found so many things in a day – eventually in an hour – to be grateful for. That practice, the practice of *looking* for gratitude, has kept depression at bay, honed humility, and has brought a great source of joy. Why? Because perspective helped me realize just how blessed I am in both good and scratchy bad times.
Among others, I’m grateful for a lifetime of partnership with Kelly, my health, family/friends, the little modern day miracles that seem to happen all around me, and for my Creator who I’ve tried (many times over) and have found to be true…I don’t take for granted that I get to live out my passions through my work, and am thankful for all of those who help Uniquely Savvy to be successful in big and small ways !!! ….Am ever thankful for YOU and for the sense of community we share!
That said, I know the holidays can be tricky for many….For many this is a time of sadness , loss – hope deferred; I can relate to that as well. If you’re reading this and it resonates, let’s connect, let’s do community…..Let’s find “something” to be grateful for together. It would be my honor 🙂.
Finding the moments of gratitude one-step-at-a-time, Happy Giving Thanks Day!
