There are many ways you can make yourself a better person. But I am a DIYer when it comes to improving myself. I live by the mantra of “why can’t you just figure it out by yourself?”
So, with the Thanksgiving holiday coming tomorrow, it was appropriate timing that I just completed proofreading a massive self-help journal. Here is the feedback I received:
“She was a heart of gold! Loved her work and communication. She actually taught me a lot while correcting my Journal. Thank you so much for all your hard work and getting the editing done before the holidays.”
So, even though I do not follow any self-help methods, courses or books, I strongly believe in expressing gratitude. At the beginning or end of each day, saying at least five things you are grateful for is massively helpful to me to calm anxiety and worries.
Here is a list of the first work-related things that came to my mind that I am grateful for this Thanksgiving. I have a bountiful plate. So, what are you thankful for?
- Fun and interesting projects
- Loving what I do
- Realizing I need to shut work off for a few days and not take on new work
- Technology to effectively work remotely and worldwide
- Learning something new from every client
- Working for clients with high expectations, positive attitudes and belief in my abilities
- A profitable business year
- A supportive family who doesn’t understand what I do, but supports me.
- A beautiful office view
- Two dogs that warm my feet while I type
What are you thankful for?
