It's 11:22 PM on a Sunday night, and all I can think about is how thankful I am for this company I work for.
I'm thankful for the opportunity to work hours that fit my needs.
I'm thankful for a team who is a "team" in every sense of the word, supporting each other in our work, and even in the cares of life.
I'm thankful that I get to sit here and write this post on our company's blog, and take this space to tell the world how stinkin' thankful I am.
And you know, this thankfulness is honestly what makes my work so much easier, and even more joyful.
A lot of us go to work, and we work because we have to.
And really, there is nothing wrong with that.
There is nothing lesser about our jobs just because we feel that they aren't as exciting or instantly rewarding as others' jobs might be.
When we take the time to find the thankfulness for what we do, and for the opportunities we've been given, it truly does make all the difference.
Thankfulness makes our tasks feel like opportunities - because they are.
It causes us to find joy in the mundane, day-to-day work.
And when obstacles and difficulties arise, thankfulness is there to remind us that those struggles DO pass, and there is something to be encouraged about in the meantime.
Take some time today to think about what you are thankful for in your work.
It's not as cliche as it sounds, I promise.
