Expressing Gratitude for 2022

Let’s face it…it is easy to focus on all the things that aren’t going as well as we had hoped. Especially in the online space. But it doesn’t have to be that way. One simple shift into gratitude can truly change your perspective. Gratitude is what keeps you going on tough days, humble, and honest. So expressing gratitude is something that can truly be such a game changer in your life and business. I have so many things to be grateful for this year. 

 

Let’s go into gratitude.

I wanted to take the opportunity to give thanks to all of you and express my gratitude. So I am truly grateful for everyone here, for those of you that share my podcast or blogs, those that reach out, and for the business and entrepreneurship journey in general. There is so much opportunity here and so much that we can be grateful for. 

If I’m being 100% honest, I was having a little bit of a hard time. I was in my head and let my mind run wild. I was focusing on everything that really has not gone as planned or has not gone as well as I had hoped. Luckily you can easily switch things around by simply just giving gratitude.

 

I want to encourage you to take a moment, grab a sheet of paper, and practice gratitude right now. 

Gratitude is what’s going to:

  • Keep you going on the tough days.
  • Really show you how far you’ve come. 
  • Keep you humble and honest.

It’s going to keep you going because it is easy to focus on all the things that aren’t going as well as we had hoped. It’s just human nature. We typically start to spiral downhill, and it’s really not necessary. Shifting into gratitude can stop that downward spiral.

 

Here are a few things I am grateful for this year.

I am grateful for a massive increase in revenue.

I am celebrating because I’m sitting at around a 25% increase in revenue. So I am extremely grateful for a 25% increase in revenue year over year right now, and that could grow before the end of the year. 

 

I am grateful, for my biz besties, Cassondra and Nicole.

Honestly, I talk to them every single day. I don’t know that I could do this without them.

 

I am so grateful for everybody inside the Accelerated Business Alliance.

Every member there brings such a unique and amazing set of knowledge and skills. Truly I am grateful for their personalities and the way it’s coming together. The fact that they share my vision for collaboration and creating a community that is 100% dedicated to growth and accelerating and uplifting everybody. I live in total gratitude every single day for that. 

 

I am really grateful for my loyal OG clients.

Truthfully, I value loyalty above most things. I have had so much repeat business from so many of you where we just continue to grow, work together, and share. That loyalty means more to me than just about anything. I am so grateful for that. 

 

I am super grateful for my husband.

He is also there to listen to my crazy mind, no matter what is going on. Sometimes it’s just me spewing and brain-dumping. Other times, it’s asking for a pep talk or celebrating our wins together. Having somebody by your side is something that I know, many don’t have. I never, ever, take it for granted and am so incredibly grateful for it.

 

I am grateful for the journey.

Entrepreneurship is the deepest journey of self-exploration that you really never knew that you were gonna go on. It brings up things that are so buried deep inside of you sometimes that you really don’t even know they still exist. But I’m grateful for it. I have grown so much, especially this year, personally, professionally, and spiritually. 

 

I’m grateful for my commitment to all of you.

It is not always easy to make this commitment to want to grow a business and to want to show up every day. Sometimes it’s not easy to be the person that holds space for other people, but we all make that commitment. We’re here and we’re doing it. And we’re committing to each other. I think that we need to celebrate. 

 

Today I am grateful for each and every one of you!

I hope that if you are in the states you are spending the holiday with the people that you love most and that this year has been amazing for you. It is my hope that it’s been a year of growth and that you’re feeling such incredible momentum and excitement moving into the new year. I know I am! There is so much momentum going into 2023, and I’m really excited to be on this journey with you. I appreciate you, value you, and am grateful for you. Have a great holiday.
