I’m grateful for my tax preparer. You get to know someone whose been doing your taxes for 10+ years, and they certainly know a lot about you. Grateful for her, and grateful to have gotten filed under the deadline. I’m also grateful that I’ve spent most of my professional life working as a consultant. It’s enabled me to view myself impartially and unemotionally as “labor” (or, as I prefer, “talent”), and allows my clients to see me as a partner, not just the “help.” And, I’m grateful for Trader Joe’s – one of the few stores with reasonably sized prepackaged foods.
Dear Gratitude Journal :
There’s a lot to be grateful for today: Michigan and Pennsylvania certified. Another vaccine candidate. A climate Czar. A qualified cabinet. It’s been so long, we’ve forgotten what competence looks like. So grateful for progressive leadership. I’m grateful for a client who respects and appreciates my insight and advice. For all the money folks pay me, it is amazing how often they completely disregard my expertise. And, I’m grateful for the cold weather. It is invigorating.
