“Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery. It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors.” – Richelle E. Goodrich.
As we roll into this Thanksgiving Holiday, I pause to reflect back on this unprecedented year. It has been a tough year for all of us. With the headwinds we have seen due to the pandemic, the challenging consequences, and the toll on our families, friends and businesses, it may be difficult to spot those golden nuggets of thanksgiving in what seems to be a 2020 mine of despair. Nevertheless, there is still reason to be thankful! Look for that glimmer and you will find it: Those sacrifices of others to help. Those kind words and gestures to those struggling. Heroes emerging. Incremental wins. Awakenings. Project completions, team accomplishments, and personal achievements unlocked. Those are all blessings to be celebrated.
Take time to pause, reflect, appreciate and enjoy the beautiful colors of blessings this Thanksgiving Holiday season.
Stay safe and stay well!
