Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

With so much occurring in our world today, I am finding that this is a special year to take stock for all the things for which I am thankful. Call it putting the “thanks” back in Thanksgiving.

Most mornings begin for me with giving thanks for twenty things in my life that I’m grateful for. I do this to set my energy for the day, try it!

This process alters my “come-from” each morning. Rather than focusing on things I’m concerned about, I shift my focus to what I’m grateful for.

Here’s my Grateful List for today:

  • My health
  • My family’s health
  • Ellen’s love
  • My career
  • My friends who stand by me and support me
  • Constantly learning
  • Growing with clients
  • The honor of shaping executive’s behavior
  • Laughing and learning simultaneously
  • Our vacations
  • My clients candor
  • My clients trust in my coaching
  • My business associates that streamlined my business
  • My coaches that keep me clear of mind
  • My trainer who keeps me fit
  • Being referred by clients
  • Acknowledgement from my blogging efforts
  • Setting and keeping my goals in life
  • Listening without any bias
  • Being approachable and curious with people

In keeping with the season, take a few minutes and list the things in your life for which you are grateful. I bet you will easily come up with more than 20. It’s a great way to celebrate life and re-engage with the world around you.

Oh…one last one for me…I’m truly grateful that you have taken the time to read this post. Happy Thanksgiving!
