Over the coming weeks, many of our friends in North America will celebrate Thanksgiving. Others around the world will hold festivals marking a bountiful harvest. These special events bring families and communities together, and are a great reminder that we all have things to be grateful for. In fact, giving thanks every day for the positives in our lives, rather than focusing on the negatives, is a practice that can improve our lives.

Being thankful or grateful for what we have, despite all that could be better, is a conscious act, and when chosen, improves our well being. An article from Harvard Medical School says, “[Gratitude] is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”


Another article shares the thoughts of social psychologist Judy Moskowitz, Ph.D., M.P.H., who believes that even in the worst of times, there are things to be grateful for, and acknowledging those things doesn’t diminish the difficulties, but may help us get through them. And Bryan Robinson, Ph.D., wrote in Forbes that “Whatever you focus your mind on expands. When you focus on lack, you operate from a position of loss and discontent and experience more lack. … When you focus on abundance, you have more of it.”

We’re so often focused on the problems that need solving and the plans we need to make for the future. That makes us more likely to overlook or take for granted all that is going well, and all of the people who are helping us succeed. Taking just a few moments each day to recognize others, acknowledge our good luck, and being grateful for what we have, enriches our lives and elevates our mood. So today, we are being grateful.

We are grateful for our team; for our drivers, for our dispatchers, for our admin staff, for everyone who has contributed to keeping our rigs on the road, especially these past two years. You are all amazing.

We are grateful for our customers; those who have trusted us to get their goods to where they need to be, time and time again. We are thankful that your businesses have survived a global crisis, and that you have navigated those rough waters with grace.

We are grateful to live in a country that people are trying to get in to, not out of; for the wisdom of our elders; for the laughter of our children; for the sweets our grandmothers make for us.

Let us give thanks every day.
