As I started to plan out the menu for Thanksgiving dinner I decided to look back and reflect on the past year. There are so many things to be grateful for.
Then I went looking for the graphic that would fit this month’s topic and look what I found. “We must find time to stop and THANK the PEOPLE who make a difference in our lives.” That is exactly what I would like to do.
Here is who I would like to thank in no particular order:
Family. I am thankful for the relationship I have with my son and that he looks out for his mother and grandmother. That my teenage granddaughters still want to hang out with their ‘fun grandma’. That we are there to help one another, laugh with one another and just enjoy life.
Friends. I have made great new friends and stronger old friends. One in particular has made a big difference in my life. It has been a year of challenges for many of us and having this circle to reach out to for support brings us even closer. Thank you for being there for me. I am grateful to be there for you.
My team members. There have been changes in the needs of my clients and new services have been needed. I am grateful to have found fabulous people to bring in to help my clients grow their businesses. I love learning every time someone new is brought in to help. I am an eternal student but cannot possibly learn and do it all. Thank you for doing what you do so well. It is a win-win-win.
My clients. Thank you for letting me help you, for listening to my advice, and accepting guidance. I am grateful that you appreciate what I have to offer, the way in which I remind many of you that things are due, and that we work together to create plans for your business.
Business connections. Without many of you I would not have been able to build my business to the level it has achieved. Thank you for your referrals, connections and support. Many have helped tremendously when I have had to step outside of my comfort zone.
People who share hobbies with me. There’s not much fun when kayaking or hiking alone. You certainly can’t dance alone. Well you could, but you may get locked up – LOL! I am so grateful to have found people who enjoy some of the same things I do and want to get out and be active with me.
People who drive me to be better. My coach and mastermind groups help me to be a better business person. Others shared ideas on how to streamline things in my business and pushed me to get them done. Without these people things would not be as far along and they are now.
What are you grateful for this year? Please share even one thing. Just put something in the comment box below. I’d love to hear from you.
