We began this year at Georgia Military College with a new email and social media campaign, “Attitude of Gratitude,” that each month features an exceptional employee we are so thankful to have as a member of the GMC Family. Each of them represents a shining example of a team member who is a joy to work with and who brings joy to everything they do at work.
Expressions of gratitude always brighten up a day – for the receiver and for the giver. Gratitude is truly meant to be shared with others. During the busy holiday season, as we spend time with friends and family, shopping and traveling, celebrating New Year’s Day, let’s add gratitude to our daily to-do lists.
Gratitude for those we love and appreciate. Letting family members and friends know how much it really means to have them in our life. Those moments are priceless. Saying thanks is so simple, yet always appreciated by everyone. If someone bakes your favorite cake, tell them how grateful you are. It can be as simple as telling someone thanks for holding the door open for you.
Gratitude for the little things in life. Oftentimes, it’s the little things that mean the most. Reading a book beside a roaring fire in the fireplace. Watching the sunrise, or sunset, alone or with a special someone. Spending quality time with family and friends. You don’t even have to do anything special. Just be together. That’s all it takes.
Gratitude for a new year. New opportunities. New experiences. 2020 holds so much potential. There is a lot to be grateful for in the upcoming year. Good times and bad times. They both hold experiences and lessons to be thankful for. We can be grateful for the ability to find the positive in the negative.
Throughout the year – every year – I am tremendously grateful to be a part of the GMC Family. I am truly grateful for every team member of the GMC Family. I am also extremely grateful for our students, alumni, and friends. I share the attitude of gratitude every day at GMC.
