I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season! As the month of December and the 2020 year come to an end, so does December's Attitude of Gratitude. I hope the month's posts have inspired, grounded and left you feeling...grateful.
As the New Year draws closer, it's a natural time to reflect on the year that's passed - to revel in our successes and pause to absorb the quieter lessons whispering to us from the year's challenges. Remember, this isn't a competition! There may be folks who have a list of things for which they're proud of accomplishing but the truth is, making it through 2020 is an accomplishment in and of itself. Stand proudly knowing that you made it thus far and bonus points if through all of the adversity 2020 threw your way, you managed to achieve your goals. If you haven't already, give yourself a high five, pat on the back, and applause! (If you've already celebrated - good job! Don't be shy, the happy dance never gets old!)
For me, this year has had moments of highs and smooth sailing but, likely similar to many of you, moments where my only focus was on adjusting the sails as I prayed for calmer days. Serendipitously, these words appeared when I needed it most:
Thank you to the late and forever great, Maya Angelou.

What’s your Attitude of Gratitude?
Take a moment to write it down. I'd love to hear it - share it with me!
If there was ever a year, a reason and a season, this is it.
The new year will offer us plenty of opportunity to refocus, realign, pivot and pursue our goals. If you haven't already, start thinking about the leader and person you wish to be. Let 2021 be the year you start making tracks! I'll be right beside you supporting your journey along the way.
