Why is it that it almost feels like we save up all our big celebrations of gratitude and joy for what we have and the people we share our lives with for these little blocks of time? Not everyone, of course, many people are good about nurturing their relationships and pausing to be thankful – but it makes you long for a more even diet of it doesn’t it? That’s why I love the idea of gratitude journals or planners with space right there on each day’s page to collect your thoughts about what inspired you or made you happy in the moment. I know for a fact that whatever we look for the most is what gets reflected back to us. So why not look for the good stuff in our days? Why not make it a new practice to spend at least ten minutes per week staying connected to family or distant friends and leading the way towards building a more deliberate practice of thankfulness? We’re blessed in this business – we can go as far as we choose to go as long as we are willing to build our skills and expand our connection with people. We can set our hours – and the pace in which we work. We can do great things to help families make the best possible real estate decisions for their families. I’d say there’s much to be grateful for. Thank you for all you do in our market!
