I was just reading something that said that you should have a gratitude journal and write in it each day. The goal is to find a moment, person, or event to be thankful for and to record it. Why? Because no matter where you are in life, no matter what you’re going through, there is always something to appreciate. The point of the article was that by journaling something positive, you overshadow any negatives and give them less space in your life.
I’m thankful for the people that I work with each day. We truly believe in the Team Arie Nol philosophy— not just in the workplace but in our personal lives as well. We’ve all had to be there for each other during big life events; births, deaths, health issues, etc. All of it has happened in the time we’ve worked together and the support our team shows for one another humbles me each time. They’re here because they have a love for the automotive industry and automobile repair. We hired them for their skill and attitude and we’ve built a team that I enjoy working with every day.
I’m thankful for the customers that trust us with their vehicles, the vendors we work with that support our business, the small business community that continues to grow and support one another, and the ability to work in a family-owned business with my son and husband every day.
Be thankful. Even if you’re not writing it down, take a moment to notice the positive things that happen in your day. Some days, it may just be, “Hey, I didn’t spill my coffee down the front of me!” or, “I didn’t slide off the road into the ditch!”. We all have those days.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Arie Nol Auto Center.
