Gratitude during the holiday season

Blog post #424

The Holidays can be different for each one of us. We might spend the holidays with our immediate family members, extended family or just with our spouses if your children are grown and have schedules of their own or live out of town.

You might bake cookies, decorate a tree, have dinner as a family, go to a religious service, buy gifts for loved ones, or help those in need.

Maybe you celebrate Hanukkah or Christmas and the traditions that accompany these holidays. You may not celebrate the holidays at all.

We often focus on buying presents, hosting our families for the holidays, or trying to please our family and friends. We often find ourselves stressed out during the holidays instead of just enjoying the time with our loved ones.

So, whether you take part in any of the above activities or not, let’s take time to be grateful, appreciative and acknowledge all the opportunities we have in our lives.

Let’s take the time to reflect on the moments both special and ordinary and be in the present with others.

Every Monday, we hold a weekly firm meeting. Over the past few months, we have started our firm meetings by having each WWM team member state something they are thankful for. I know not all members are comfortable sharing with everyone. It’s become a nice personal way to start our firm meetings and get to hear what each WWM team member is thankful for that week.

It has helped our firm grow. We may learn something new about a team member and appreciate the value each WWM team member contributes to the firm.

Just as we take the time to say what we are thankful for each week, we hope you set aside time for reflection and discover what you have gratitude for, at this time of year.

From all of us at WWM:

We appreciate EVERY client and the relationships we get to build with each one of you.

We hope you have a good holiday season and we wish you all the best for a healthy and happy 2020!
