As you end your week, we hope you do so with pure gratitude.

Rather than wishing you had done one more thing, had one more thing, seen one more thing, etc. be grateful for the place you are in at this very moment.

Be grateful for the people you have around you at this very moment. Be grateful for laughs, for stories old memories, for making new memories, and for the chance to lean in to being fully present in person rather than through a phone or computer screen.

Be grateful for opportunities and for the potential that each next step holds for you. Rather than viewing challenges as setbacks, view challenges as opportunities for growth or perhaps as an invitation to pivot directions toward something that holds more meaning for you and defines each step you take with purpose.

Be grateful for the abundance that defines your life. While there might be a lot of things on your “wish list”, take a moment to first realize all that you have right now. If you spend too much time searching for the next best thing, the next chapter, the next journey to start, you’ll miss out on the NOW.

You often have to quiet the external noise to hear the truth that is already in and around you. 

So, let yourself press pause today in the middle of your journey to soak in and indulge in pure gratitude. Lead with a grateful heart and have gratitude for all that you have already done and all that you are about to do.

That gratitude alone can serve as your fuel…let it fuel you to fall upward and always travel heartward!
