An Attitude of Gratitude

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
-Melody Beattie

From the entire MCFA team, we hope you had a great Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends. We are grateful for our team members, our big business and small business partners and our clients. 

As we enter the Holiday season, here is a gentle reminder (to myself, as much as anyone) to have a get-to and not a got-to attitude. This time of year can be filled with peace, magic and joy…or it can be filled with shopping lists, endless errands and busyness. It’s all a matter of perspective. Because the shopping, errands and holiday celebrations aren’t going away, if we shift our perspective from “I got to ________ (insert task – go shopping/run errand/ attend holiday party) for/with ________,” to, “I’m so lucky I have all of these friends I get to ________ (insert task – go shopping/run errand/attend holiday party) for/with,” your perspective will shift from overwhelmed to grateful.    
And one more gentle reminder (again to myself as much as anyone), don’t wait for New Year’s resolutions to hit the gym, eat healthier, start gratitude journaling or…name your goal, resolution, better habit! Treat December 1st, or better yet, November 26th as January 1st, and get a kick start on 2022. 

And if you happen to be a veteran (or know one) who is retiring or transitioning to the “civilian world” next year, we’d love to help with the transition. Callemail or LinkedIn me – we want to help however we can.
