What Are You Most Grateful For As 2023 Comes To a Close



What are we most grateful for as 2023 comes to a close?

First off, it was a wonderful year at Jim Strawn & Company.

Which is not possible without the many organizations, companies and individuals who entrusted us for their marketing needs.

Thank you.

Gratitude is a subjective experience, and what people are most thankful for can vary widely based on individual circumstances and perspectives. However, as we reflect on the past year, we offer some general observations of gratitude.

  1. Health: Individuals and communities may be grateful for good health, especially considering the challenges posed by the global pandemic. Personally, having never contracted COVID, I am amazingly thankful.
  2. Scientific Advancements: Ongoing progress in science and technology, including medical breakthroughs, renewable energy developments, and innovations that improve overall quality of life. Thank you to all our scientists out there.
  3. Community Resilience: Many communities worldwide have faced challenges, but their resilience, solidarity, and the support networks that have emerged can be a source of gratitude. Many of you know, we are community-minded. Simply put, the word community means a series of relationships.
  4. Environmental Stewardship: Efforts to address climate change and promote environmental sustainability, with advancements in renewable energy, conservation, and sustainable practices. We only have one Earth and we need to care for it.
  5. Social Progress: Progress in social justice, equality, and inclusion, with efforts to address systemic issues and promote a more just and equitable society. We continue to make progress, but still have some work to be done.
  6. Technological Innovations: Advances in technology that enhance communication, connectivity, and convenience, contributing to improved lifestyles and opportunities.
  7. Global Collaboration: Positive developments in international cooperation and diplomacy, as nations work together to address global challenges.
  8. Personal Growth and Learning: Opportunities for personal development, education, and learning experiences that contribute to individual growth and well-being. One can only grow outside of the ‘comfort zone’. Stay strong and get stronger.

It’s important to recognize that while there may be positive aspects to be thankful for, there are also challenges that people and communities may face. Gratitude can be found in resilience, progress, and the support systems that help navigate difficulties.

Wishing you and yours a properous 2024.
