It’s hard to feel any positive feeling about 2020 now, for obvious reasons. I won’t mention everything that’s gone wrong with the past ten months – you can read all about that in just about any news source or social media post. And yes, I’m in one of those businesses – travel - that has been profoundly affected by COVID-19.
But I am fortunate. My family and I are financially secure, and we have all of our basic needs fulfilled. So even though we’ve had our emotional and psychological challenges like just about all of us have had, I realize that we have many reasons to be grateful in my family.
Last week was Thanksgiving week, so I’m hoping with this quick list post, you can also begin to see what is going right in your life and use this to inspire you to a better few days, holiday season and 2021.
My personal gratitude list
1.) My home, my family, our cat
2.) Our health and abundance
3.) The U.S has a new President and hopefully a change in direction with the pandemic
4.) My home-based business, my clients and my network of colleagues
6.) Travel (of course!)
7.) Being able to run, bike, ski, hike, play golf and tennis, practice yoga and gain strength
8.) Getting a Peloton bike and finding a new way to stay fit and sane
9.) My car
10.) This blog
12.) Local businesses
14.) My books and journals
15.) The chance to enjoy good food, wine and beer
17.) Sunny days
18.) Snowy days
19.) Having hope and optimism for a better future
20.) Every day that we are above ground
There is plenty more things to feel gratitude for, but these are what’s most important in my life at the moment.
What are you grateful for, especially now?
