As I sit here today, I can’t help to think about how lucky I am. I am so grateful to have such great people all around me. I want to take this time to thank you all for all your support and effort in making Urban Settlements a successful brand and a company you can feel proud to work with! All of you have made a huge impact in my life. All in little different ways! I’m am so grateful to have you there to help me along my journey. As I think back, I can’t believe how far we have come. We have made so many little steps in a positive direction that is sometimes hard to see our progress. I am so proud to call you all my partners and friends. I could not do it without you. You all embody what Urban Settlements is all about, Giving! Thank you for being the giver the world needs. You are all make a huge difference in the community and people that we serve.
Just a quick reflection: It is crucial that we are grateful each and every day. As a driven person, this is a difficult challenge for me. I have a hard time stopping to reflect on all that is good in my life and instead I think about what needs to be done or had not been done yet. The days that I make being grateful a priority are the days that life comes much easier for me. The little issue throughout the day are just that, little issues. They do not control or determine my attitude or outlook. I recommend that we all take 10 minutes a day to reflect on all that is good in our life, and take the time to be grateful for all the good things. I would recommend you do this once in the morning and once in the evening. This will help you start and finish your day on a positive note. After you have done this for 90 days, reflect on how this small step changed your outlook on life and then continue doing it for the rest of your life.
In Life it is too easy to get caught up in what other are doing and have. This will help stay centered and focus on you and what is important to you and your life, not what the Jones are doing. By the way: You are the Jones!
Happy Thanksgiving! Give everyone a big hug and cherish the time you have with your family and friends. That is what life is all about.
Thanks again for all the support!
