What Are You Thankful For?
This is the time of year that a lot of us reflect on our lives and count our blessings. This time of year, also, typically makes us more aware of those in need and those less fortunate. What are you thankful for? How are you making a difference for someone else? Take time to reach out to friends or family and let them know you are thinking of them. Let them know you are thankful for them.
Maybe you don’t love your job or your kids are being rebellious. Think of those that need a job or desperately want children of their own. Maybe you’re not where you want to be in life. Me neither! Hopefully we are always growing, learning, and becoming better human beings every day. Be thankful for how far you’ve come. Haven’t got that project completed? If you worked on it today, you are one step closer. Haven’t lost all the weight? If you’re eating right and exercising, good for you. You’re not where you were last month.
I am thankful that I get to have a career that helps make so many dreams come true. Every day I get to see new beginnings – and new chapters being opened. I am thankful for the clients that trust me to help them with what is typically the biggest investment of their life. I am also thankful for the agents in my company that are in our family. They make me proud to work with them.
I think it’s easy for some of us to watch tv or movies and compare our lives to the stars we see. Or flip through social media and wonder why you can’t have what they have. Most of it’s not real, first of all, and secondly, right now there is someone looking at you wishing they could live in your shoes. So be thankful and keep growing. Keep being grateful.
