Earlier this year when the concept of Kendra Clark Leadership Strategies came to fruition, I was not sure where it was headed. COVID-19 had just shut down most of the world and we were all adapting to a new world. However; as we approach Thanksgiving this week, I cannot say THANK YOU enough. This year more than ever, I think it's important to take a moment to reflect on the past eleven months and create an appreciation list. I am grateful for many reasons this year and I wanted to share my list:
My growth journey - It has been a journey of diving deep and knudging myself out of my comfort zone. While terrifying in May, it's now exhilarating and rewarding.
My health - If we can appreciate anything in 2020, it's our health. While the year has not shaped out to be anything that we could have imagined, it has provided a much needed time to refocus on healthy habits with eating, exercising and sleep.
My family - cheerleaders, therapists, and sometimes cooks......life would just not be the same without them! Their absolute faith in me is my backbone.
My friends - it takes a village and I have some of the best friends out there. Their unrelenting support and enthusiasm for my journey has not gone unnoticed and words cannot properly justify my appreciation.
The John Maxwell Team - This amazing group of people and mentors have been a great addition to my life this year. It's 365 days of inspiration!
Former Colleagues - While our time together was cut short in March, the first quarter was an absolute blast and I will forever think of you as part of the family! I know that each of you are rockin' it and you will be forever successful in wherever life takes you!
YOU - Thank you for being a part of the tribe. I have learned so much from each of you and I look forward to seeing what 2021 brings.
Whether in your personal or professional life, it's is important to take the moments to reflect. If we just continue to go and go, how will you grow, but more importantly, how will you appreciate where life has taken you? Take a moment this Thanksgiving and put together your own list. Make sure you share your gratitude to those on the list whether they be your team members or personal friends. I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!
