If you've taken a class with us, you know how important gratitude is to us.
We are always talking about the neurochemical benefits of a regular gratitude practice. So we love it when our national day of gratitude comes around. This year we thought we would do a little different. We asked our staff and trainers to share their gratitude, personal and professional, with you so you can get to know us a little better. Here is what we collected; I love how each person's style shows in their list.
Thea Harvey-Barratt, Co-founder, Training Director
I’m grateful for:
Our growing company and the AWESOME people I get to work with
The chance to be of service and make a difference in people’s lives
The delicious smell of our woods in the fall
Technology that brings people together
Nanette Fortneberry, Office Manager, Kindergarten Readiness project
Today I have real connections with my family and friends. Acceptance and respect is a mutual part of the relationship we have with one another.
I've learned to have an attitude of gratitude. I begin each day with prayer and meditation. Connecting with God each morning allows me to accept life on life's terms.
God gifted me with a love of learning and a passion for educating others.
I work for a company that encourages open mindedness and inspires me to challenge myself to learn new skills. My bosses are great at being flexible but firm with goal setting.
I know that God is watching over my only son who is currently serving the United States Navy.
