With Thanksgiving having just passed, and the year quickly coming to a close, I think it’s fitting to take some time to reflect on what you are thankful for and who you are thankful to… and then to say thank you!
I’ll go first…
This year has had some definite bumpy spots. Some very trying moments for the people I love most. And some of them have left me wondering if there were things I could have done differently. But then, when I really dig into what’s happening, I realize that I’m lucky. Hard times happen. They happen to everyone no matter how nailed down and responsible they are. And I’m blessed to have people in my life who trust me enough to help them manage their burdens. I’m so very thankful for that.
When people you care about struggle, it isn’t easy. And I’m also blessed to have some wonderful people in my life who reach out to me regularly to make sure that I’m taking care of myself. I’m thankful for each and every one of them.
Professionally, I have some awesome and amazing people who routinely push me to take risks, believe in myself, and strive to hit my full potential. I mean… how lucky am I?!
Like I said, I think it’s a good thing to actually say thank you to those people who have helped you out in the past year.
And on that note, I want to say thank you to you… the person reading this. I love being part of the Wealthy Web Writer community and I appreciate you for being here, for reading my ramblings, and most of all, for having the courage to go after your dreams. It isn’t always easy, but it’s a beautiful, brave thing to do.
All right, your turn… in the comments below, share what you’re thankful for in this past year.
