What a year it’s been, right? Though around this time of year, people often will sugar-coat and try hard to pretend that the year has been all peaches and cream—that their family dinners won’t have hot topic subjects everyone tries not to bring up, that politics and riots and global violence isn’t on their mind, and that they feel fulfilled in their careers and homes.
Thankfully, a posture of gratefulness is not contingent on your circumstances, but on your perspective.
Everything doesn’t have to be in place, your life on track, everyone in your life happy, and your eyebrows done for you to be grateful. Rather, even amidst the reality of stress that surrounds us, we need only to take a moment to ponder the thousands of reasons around us to be thankful.
Let’s land in that place together, today.
We asked our staff for five unique things they are grateful for.
