Gratefulness every day

"It got me thinking recently about how important practicing gratefulness is".

During the very first lockdown in 2020 (can you believe that was two years ago?!) the Kin team took to daily connections as an essential part of our day. We checked in on each other, asking “how are you really?”, and offered support, whether that was for work or home. We also asked each other one key question, “what are you grateful for?”.

This team connection has stuck and is something we continue to do to this day. And it got me thinking recently about how important practicing gratefulness is.

With everything that goes on in the world, it’s important to take a step back and be thankful for what you do have. Over the years, our gratefulness has sometimes been big, but most often small, and it’s the little things that matter.

“I’m so grateful it’s sunny”, “I’m grateful for my walk to work”, “I got to pet a dog today!”

We also talk about who in our lives makes us feel grateful, whether that’s partners, family, friends, workmates, or a kind stranger. Too often, we take these connections for granted.

Yesterday, one of the team shared their gratefulness for the impact that Kin makes through our giving programmes. Specifically, through one of our giving partners, B1G1 - business for good. B1G1 recently shared with us that they have set up two giving projects to support the people of Ukraine. Naturally, the Kin team have jumped in behind this, and we are grateful that we have the ability to do that.

So, while it seems that we are in a never-ending pandemic, with the six o’clock news turning into a horror-show, and social media full of misinformation, it’s important to practice your gratefulness for the good things.

Take a second and ask yourself… “what am I grateful for today?”.
