“There’s always something to be thankful for. If you can’t pay your bills,you can be thankful you’re not one of your creditors” – Author Unknown
As I see my boys grow, I find myself thinking about everything I have to be thankful for. For instance, I’ve been a Mortgage Banker for some time, which is a position that I enjoy and love. One advantage it gives me is flexibility over my time, so I can spend more time with those I love.
What Am I Grateful For?
I’m also grateful to be able to share the knowledge that I’ve learned throughout the years with my clients and those of you who read my blog. It’s a wonderful and rare thing to do something that you love for a living.
Most of us are so busy reaching our goals, making plans for the future, pushing and struggling to rise to wherever we feel our position in life should be, that we very rarely take the time to look back at where we started. Think back to your first car, your first residence, etc. Are there things to be grateful for?
While it’s always a good idea to have goals, to visualize and work towards them, if you never take the time to appreciate what you’ve done then it becomes a constant, maddening race to the finish line. Intangible things, such as happiness and satisfaction, fall by the wayside, considered unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Always remember there is more happiness in giving then in receiving.
What Do I Savor?
With the end of the year drawing closer, I invite you to think about what you have to be thankful for. Whether big or small, you’ll find yourself savoring all the good things in your life.
So what are some of the things that you’re grateful for? It doesn’t have to be a big thing to be appreciated. Was the sky particularly beautiful today? If it brightens your life, brings a smile to your face, lightens your mood or warms your heart, be thankful for the experience.
Enjoy each moment as if it were your last, sipping from the cup of gratitude and appreciation; you may find that your heart is constantly filled with happiness. Your trusted mortgage professional invites you to make every day a grateful one.
