This month we want to focus on Gratitude, the cousin of appreciation. Appreciation is defined as the act of acknowledging the goodness in life—in other words, seeing the positives in events, experiences, or in other people. Gratitude goes a step further; it recognizes how the positive things in our lives are often due to forces outside of ourselves, particularly the efforts of other people. We would like to take the month of October to focus on showing gratitude towards our coworkers, clients, customers, vendors, and families. If you would like to join us on our 31 day gratitude challenge, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
