The Attitude of Gratitude: Make every day Thanksgiving

November 20, 2014 | By | In Alle Branding, appreciation 0 Comments

One week from today, if you live in the U.S., you will be in the process of eating way too much coma-inducing food.

As a kid, the story I heard was that Thanksgiving was to celebrate the Indians (now known as Native Americans) and Pilgrims (now known as undocumented immigrants—oh wait, wrong story) sharing a meal to celebrate the good harvest of 1621. Of course, this could just be Plymouth Colony lore. Who knows?

Apparently, today, ungrateful louts that we are, we need to have a legal holiday to remind us that we have a whole lot for which to be grateful. We all get too caught up in our busy lives, deadlines, electronic devices, overscheduled extracurricular events and multi-tasking to remember to breathe and thank.

Personally, I’m pretty thankful to awaken and go vertical each day. Everything else is gravy. And, I feel like I have a lot of gravy in my life and my business.

I am very grateful to have the privilege to work with smart, motivated and appreciative clients. And, I am thankful that I get to collaborate with some of the best vendors in the business, who have my back, so that together we can bring my customers what they need to build their brand. You know who you are.

I am sure I haven’t taken enough time to express to each and every one of you how grateful I am to you every day. You make every day Thanksgiving Day.
