In our busy lives, it’s easy to forget to take the time to be thankful for all that we have and all of those in our lives, and that is what the Thanksgiving holiday is all about, right?

I wanted to reflect on some of the things for which I am most grateful.

I encourage you to do the same – make a list of everything and everyone for which you are most thankful.

I am grateful and thankful for my family, friends and puppies(!), and every experience (bad and good) that has made me stronger, wiser and more resilient.

I’m thankful that I have a job and clients I love. After making a few career missteps, I am grateful to have found a way to be myself without being held back and to do things on my own terms.

I’m grateful to have a platform to help others on LinkedIn – whether it’s teaching them to be stronger social media marketers or how to write content that clients actually want to read.

I always say to build your brand long before you ever need it, and I hope you will really take that advice to heart. This is a major reason why I was able to start my own business in because I have been posting on LinkedIn for years.

I’m thankful to able to bring women together and discuss issues through Women Who Wow such as how to deal with mean girls at any age, picking yourself up after a setback and mental health struggles.

Grateful for these two

I’m thankful that so many of you have welcomed me with open arms here when I share challenges and struggles in addition to social media tips.

A managing partner of a former firm at which I worked messaged me and said “you post a lot of the things that we think but don’t say and raise important issues.”

That meant the world to me because many people read my posts but don’t necessarily like or comment on them.

It can be really inspiring to take a step back and realize all of the wonderful things you have in your life. Live in the now because you never know.

I’m thankful for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving!
