Gratitude is an Action Word
I am always a bit intimated to post on our TKA blog. Working every day with such amazing writers, I know just how much my own writing pales in comparison. That being said, it may sound funny that my blog post title is Gratitude is an action word knowing full well gratitude is a noun.
But for me, as this holiday season kicks off I plan to make a conscience effort to make my gratitude apparent to everyone by both my actions and my attitude.
On a professional level, I have so much to be grateful for beginning with my most basic ability to see and read the written word. So first off, I am thankful for my eyesight and my 2.0 reading glasses.
I am thankful for the Internet, high speed connections, my laptop and blackberry – all of which make my work accessible, portable, and allow me to do my job from any spot in the world any time of the day.
I am grateful for my Kindle and the inroads that have been made in the digital publishing world this year. I am thankful that with the click of a few buttons I have thousands of books available to me.
I am thankful for our submissions box and knowing that any day the most amazing manuscript might come in and possibly be our next best seller. I am thankful to Melissa who does an extraordinary job staying on top of the mounds of incoming material. Thank you, Melissa!
I am thankful for my other wonderful co-workers and the skills that they each bring to the table making The Knight Agency such a special place to work.
Thank you Elaine for running such a tight ship and your willingness to talk over lunch. And Jamie for all those questions you answer and checks you send out. Thank you, Jia for always having a smile and helping me with every random computer issue I have. Thank you Nephele for west coast updates and Lucienne for your diligence and hard work on all things Dorchester. You are all amazing ladies. Thank you for all you do!!!
I am so thankful for Deidre and Jud and all that they have done to grow TKA. Deidre is a giver of time and talent every day. I am grateful that I can make a living doing something so much fun with people I love.
And finally, I am thankful for my awe inspiring clients whose talents and imaginations are amazing. In an industry where rejection is as common as the winter cold, I say thank you to my strong, smart, funny, creative, quirky and lovable clients. You keep me on my toes. In this competitive marketplace you understand the power of both a good rewrite as well as a strong sense of humor. You people are such professionals. You know who you are. Thank you, thank you.
Yes, for me I hope to make gratitude an action word this season! Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
