Thursday is Thanksgiving. It has always been my favorite holiday. I love the food, honoring family and friends, and appreciating what it is all about…to be grateful.
I have a tradition. Every year I ask everyone at my table what they are grateful for. Some don’t like it and yet, no one has ever gone silent during this reflection.
This Year I Am Grateful for:
Professionally: My Clients, my great Cohort(s) at Seattle Coach and the many friends I have met along the way, The ICF (International Coach Federation) and their regular inspiring teachings to make us all better coaches and to become better at this craft.
Personally: Oh my, so much. My two beautiful daughters and the lessons they teach me every day especially regarding perspective. My incredible friends who have been with me every step of the way during this past year in good times and in bad, in fun celebration, and given me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. I cannot forget the professional people either. Thank you to the attorneys, accountants, financial experts and business brokers and all those who were my rocks in in a recent business sale.
Always and Forever: My Dad who passed a little over a year ago who gave me my passion, perseverance, generosity and deep caring for other human beings.
Today and Tomorrow: We don’t ever know what tomorrow brings and yet I am unusually optimistic about it. I hope you are too.
This week I would just like to just say THANK YOU out loud! Please join me in being grateful.
