Be grateful for the challenges, for the trials for the struggle.
Be grateful for the opportunity to change, for the chance to improve, for the resources to do anything you could possibly want to do.
I am grateful for coffee (currently Caffeine & Kilos PR Blend), for the community which we are a part of (who else would be lifting with me at 6am on Thanksgiving Day here in a bit), and for the life that I have been blessed with.
I am grateful for the last 4 months of waiting, making negative progress (yep, thats a thing), and feeling as though we were moving through molasses during a cold Vermont winter (it’s cold up there right?).
I am grateful for the conflicts that I have handled well and the ones I did not handle well and for the opportunities to learn from them and improve in the future.
I am grateful for my dog (Jax) for whom the business is named (the black wolf, obvi) and for the fact that he poops twice on one walk because you never know if there is going to be a better place to go to the bathroom (truth… best place in America right now is the Grad America in Salt Lake City back in the banquet area).
And I am especially grateful for all of you who have passed on a kind word of support for Black Wolf or for me personally in the last few months. Many of you have no idea how meaningful those words were to me. I assure you that the confidence with which we operate is grounded in feedback received from y’all (if that makes sense). Its easy to say we should #bebetter or #neversettle, but y’all put me in a position to actually pursue that in my life and to help others pursue that in theirs.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday today. If any of y’all are in Houston, I have space at my family’s table if you are not able to be with yours (not kidding).
