What We Are Thankful For In 2018
By Brett Gottlieb
Happy Thanksgiving from our team at Comprehensive Advisor! We want to take a moment to thank you for being a part of our family. We sincerely appreciate the trust you place in our firm and we take our responsibility to you and your family very seriously.
A Time To Be Grateful
The world we live in doesn’t lend itself well to gratitude. Outwardly, it may seem that there are few silver linings amidst all the headlines of political drama, international unrest, and natural disasters. While it’s easy to be distracted by all this noise, it’s important to take a step back and acknowledge the many things we have to be thankful for.
Family probably tops the list for many of us, but for me, I tend to look beyond the traditional definition of family. Yes, my wife and kids are my top priority and I am grateful for our close bonds and shared moments, but I’m also thankful for my supportive extended family of my brother, sisters, parents, nieces, nephews, and in-laws. They are happy, healthy, loving, and so much more, and this is a reason to celebrate!
My gratitude for family isn’t limited to those who share my last name or have become family through marriage. I consider my friends, staff, and clients to be my extended family as well. My staff and I have worked hard to build this incredible company and transition into a great new office. We have a shared goal of helping others, and this has joined us together like nothing else.
I am grateful that I can go to work every day passionate about what I do, and that’s all thanks to my clients. I get the privilege of sharing in their lives and building lifelong relationships as I help them prepare for the future and enjoy their years of hard work. Each of these groups are a part of my family, and 2018 wouldn’t have been nearly as wonderful without them.
Cherishing The Moments
As anyone with young kids knows, the days are long but the years are short. Because of how quickly time passes, I’m thankful that I can spend time with my kids when it matters most, investing in their lives and watching them grow and develop. My oldest, Avery, is now seven and has blossomed into a strong student and a beauty of a girl. Seeing my son, Skyler, grow into a happy and fun-loving five-year-old has been incredibly fulfilling. And last but not least, my youngest, Lily, turned one and is so close to walking. Her big personality and smile can brighten anyone’s day. It’s mind-boggling how quickly time passes, but I’ve been enjoying watching Lily at this age and reliving Avery and Skyler’s little years. I cherish every moment and memory with them.
I am so blessed to be in the time and place in which I now live. Every day brings new opportunities to wake up, pursue health, spend time with people I love, and be a contributing member of society. No matter what each day brings, I can learn from my mistakes and grow from them. I can share laughter and sadness with others and know that something new can happen at any moment, both good and bad. I strive to live each day to the fullest and keep this perspective of gratitude regardless of what goes on around me.
