The end of the work week is upon us! Sometimes with the excitement of the upcoming weekend, it’s easy to forget everything our colleagues or even our boss has done to help through the week. Today, we want to share with you how our marketing team shows appreciation and gratitude to those who have helped them through the week.
Our weekly #gratz thread
Every Friday, we open a thread in our marketing communication channel called the “#Gratz thread”. This thread is a place for each member of our team to tag the people who’ve helped them and leave an encouraging word.
This helps take the focus off of the busyness of work, and focus on others and show gratitude where its due.
Gratitude changes everything
There’s nothing too small that we can’t be grateful for. When I came into work this morning, I was reminded how thankful I am for the ability to see, talk, walk, communicate, and to hear. It’s way too easy to take these things for-granted.
You can always be thankful
You might say, I can’t agree with that…what if everything is going bad for me today? Instead of focusing on the problem, turn to look at all of the positives of the day. Maybe you awoke in a panic to find that your alarm didn’t go off when it should have and you’re late to work, or maybe your car wouldn’t start this morning. These are all challenges, but let’s flip this around. Maybe you were late to work this morning, but can you be grateful that you arrived to work safely? If you car didn’t start, can you be thankful for mechanics and services like Uber? Don’t look at the negatives, but choose to look at the positives.
We give you this challenge
Today, we challenge you with this:
Can you find 10 things that you’re grateful for today? If it’s a colleague, make sure to reach out and let them know. Maybe it’s your spouse, child, or even a parent. Send them a text or an email and let them know that you appreciate them.
Today, show gratitude. It changes everything!
