Gratitude in Service
Over the past few weeks with some of the projects I’ve been working on, I’ve not felt completely happy with how things have been going, but have been unable to really put my finger on it. Things have been going well by most measurable standards, but I just didn’t feel entirely positive about everything.
Heard a talk yesterday given that really inspired me to take stock of all the great things in my professional life right now, and started reflecting on gratitude. I realized how incredibly lucky I was in so many ways. Interestingly, I started to feel more positive about the projects I’ve been working on, and realized that the negativity I had been feeling wasn’t due to things going wrong, but my failure to acknowledge that things were actually going right.
So, gratitude. My new habit.
