“What I’m most grateful for this year is my little sister Samantha. She has been a huge supportive force for me this past year and I would be completely lost without her. We’re currently 3,000 miles apart but keep in touch every day and support each other through all kinds of ups and downs. I’m so grateful to have such a wonderful and inspiring human as my sister and best friend.”
“I am thankful for my friends and family that not only lift me up but brighten up my days! I am also grateful for my ability to work and live in San Francisco! Oh – and I’m so thankful for my dog!!”
“This year I am thankful for my family. They are my closest friends and are always so supportive of me. Also, I am super grateful for my university and school-year. With it being my last year of college, I am especially thankful for the experiences and education I have received.”
“This time of year always provides a great deal of perspective for me when I look around and observe the close connections in my life. Of course I am grateful for my health, the privilege of living in a beautiful home in one of the dreamiest cities in the world, and the ability to nourish myself well. Beyond all of that though, I am most grateful for my family, my friends, my partner, the people who remain close even when there is physical distance between us. The family I was granted and the family I have chosen while on this wild ride of existence provide honest reflections of who I am and who I aspire to be. They are my guiding forces, my eternal heartbeat, and the love I receive from them is the most essential resource I have.”
“I’m so thankful for my team and my small business community this year! After becoming a mom last year, things in my life changed dramatically (surprise, surprise!). Throughout everything, my team and my community helped ease the transition and offered so much support both personally and professionally. I’m so grateful to have them in my life!”

As we continually adjust to a “new” normal found in quarantine, the conversation has ought to shift towards how we can cultivate healthy habits for our minds. Having personal time and space away from those in your home to center yourself may be difficult to find now. I want to share a way I have been practicing mindfulness and “checking in” with myself, even for just ten minutes a day.
