Finding Gratitude in 2020

I recently attended a virtual women’s business networking group meeting where the special guest speaker was a life and productivity coach. The theme of the meeting was “Promoting Gratitude and Joy” and during the meeting, the speaker asked us to consider what we’re grateful for. Not only to think about the cumulative things in our life that we’re grateful for but also the smaller things that may have happened just that day, in the last hour or even last few minutes. 

I’m not going to lie, for the first time in a long time I really took the time to consider gratitude. After all, 2020 has been a dumpster fire of a year. However, I was able to muster up a pretty good list. 

I’m tremendously grateful for my husband, two beautiful, healthy kids, a home, clean water, and indoor plumbing. You know, the basics. I’m grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to start this business, that I have people who have supported me along the way. I’m also grateful for the experiences, although not pleasant, that has led me to desire to help others in many of the situations I’ve encountered.

Although you may be grateful for some of the same things I mentioned above, you also may have experienced the loss of a loved one this year and are trying to turn that grief into gratitude for the time you had with them. Trust me when I say I know that this can be extremely hard to do.

In between your search for gratitude, you may be stuck, you may be deep in brain fog, you may have no idea where to start. So as you walk that path to finding gratitude, Let me turn my personal experiences with grief, loss, and everything those come with into individualized assistance that will be a guiding light to your own gratitude. It all starts with a simple, no-strings-attached phone call. 

It’s my wish for you to find gratitude in even the smallest of places this year, and it would be an honor to help you find one more thing to be grateful for.
