Joan generated her illustrated annual Thanksgiving Message to our newsletter subscribers so I thought to share it here for a more general audience. We wish all of you the best for these days and the whole year. So, here we go:
As Thanksgiving approaches, we’ve added our Square Wheels cartoons to some insightful quotes that support the idea that continually expressing gratitude and being thankful can lead to a happier, more productive and improved workplace.
Square Wheels One representing “How Most Organizations Really Work” is shown below, but if you’ll read further, you’ll find some inspiring thoughts for how gratitude and thankfulness can create a smoother journey forward for everyone:
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” ― William Arthur Ward
“The more you practice the art of thankfulness, the more you have to be thankful for.” ― Norman Vincent Peale
“A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude.”
― Bruce Wilkinson
“The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become.” ― Robert Holden
“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.” ― Ernest Hemingway
And, a couple of other well-known characters have this to say:
“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”
― Willie Nelson
“What if today, we were just grateful for everything?”
― Charlie Brown
Enjoy your Thanksgiving! And enjoy the remaining year,
For the FUN of It!
