Best Practices: Tom Black on Gratitude

In Stories by News Room

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy to get caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of life – meetings, appointments and marking things off your to-do list. But each year as the holiday months roll around, I’m reminded more to count my many blessings – family, work-family, clients, and health. And did I mention my two granddaughters?

Thanksgiving gives us a reason to be thankful – and it’s important to be reminded that gratitude is worth practicing, especially as we ponder those who are hungry, homeless or alone. Not long ago I read some advice on social media about practicing gratitude by writing down three things you’re thankful for 21 days in a row. The idea is that if you take time to think about your blessings, you’ll appreciate them more – and be more thankful. I’m going to give this a try, and maybe you’ll want to try it, too.

In the meantime, I hope you’ll know we’re thankful for you and your partnership. I wish each of you a happy Thanksgiving and quality time with family and friends.
