As I sit at my computer in my home office, I reflect on the past year with so much gratitude for the adventures. For the past 20 years, I have been working to birth a vision. It was intangible for so long. And every obstacle and impossible situation made it feel like it would never come to fruition. But it did.
Who knew that my years of listening to the soft language in my mind's eye and deep wisdom would actually bring me to a place of creating my dream business? While it feels like I have been at this forever, it’s also so brand-new, because we are in our infancy of this work.
Yup, 3 is young.
We at carriemontgomery.com handle business with kid gloves. We listen to the sensitivity of the customer. We listen to the needs of our community. We grow based on the desires we hear. The beauty of this is that our growth that meets our customer's needs is completely aligned with this personal brand - ME!
As the guiding force here at carriemontgomery.com, I cannot do this work without the background support of my team. So yes, I am grateful for the key players that keep my vision afloat on the daily. I am immensely appreciative for the thousands of women that show up as listeners, clients, students, and visionaries.
I have said this before, and I will continue to say it … we don’t do this alone.
Think of all the people you have talked to along the journey of your business and life. These little guides and messengers are all part of the grand scheme of your success.
As we sit down today for Thanksgiving in the US, we have a tradition of gathering and sharing our gratitude with friends and family. It is one of the greatest and most heartwarming exercises you can do. I regularly use a gratitude practice to shift energy and show up with more love.
It’s true sometimes that the disheartening news or tough emotional situations we face can make us a little hard and bitter. It’s easy to fall down into the well of despair and think the world is going to end when daily you wake and see more people being killed in mass murder, or that our president has tweeted some insensitive response to a public outcry for help.
Even if we cannot control the outside world, we can change our response to the world. It starts with Gratitude.
And do you know where that all starts? In your body!
Yup, you knew I had to get back to style.
In true body wisdom style, write out a list of all the things you are grateful for. If you can share it with some of your friends and family, please do. There is nothing more fulfilling than the giving and receiving of the clarity of gratitude.
I'd love to hear what you're most grateful for this Thanksgiving. Let me know in the comments below.
I will be sitting today with friends and family thinking of you and sending my deepest heartfelt gratitude for you showing up in my world!
