Create a gallery of gratitude showcase your photos of the people or things that inspire you.
What are you giving thanks for today? Let's continue our modern thanksgiving by including it in a gallery of gratitude.
Last Thanksgiving, I shared with you Seth Godin's blog post suggesting we adopt a modern thanksgiving that celebrates "the people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and the opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing." This year, I'd like to continue that celebration.
When I reflect on the things for which I am grateful, I put my family at the top of the list. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by parents, children, and friends who share their unconditional love and support with me. I hope they all know that it is completely mutual.
I am also thankful for the friends and fellow enthusiasts I meet every weekend on our photo tours. When I started this business, I had no idea how each interaction would nurture my spirit. In sharing my passion with you, I found myself. I'll always be grateful for that.
It's not enough to recite our thankfulness, however. I'd like to build galleries of gratitude. Let's take Seth's idea and use our photos to bring it to life. Build your own gallery for your loved ones, or share it with me on the PhotoTour DC Facebook page. Whether public or private, post your modern thanksgiving along with a few sentences on why it is special to you. Share your memories of the people who inspire you and what you've been able to create as a result. Start a gallery of your gratitude, and keep it open all year. A modern thanksgiving ought to last more than a day.
Thanks for your friendship and patronage. Have a great Thanksgiving Day!
