This year has been nuts. There, I’ve said it. 2017 was full of almonds and pistachios (figuratively).

I have had a great year – working at YMCA Victoria with some of the best people I know, I got to enjoy some maternity leave, meet a very cool new little human, and a few more things have fallen into place, hinting that 2018 will be even better yet.

But sometimes it can take a little effort to appreciate how good life can be. A practise I like to try to adhere to is showing gratitude to those around me, who, knowingly, or completely obliviously, made my life better, or richer in some way.

This year I decided to take some time out and thank some friends/colleagues/groups through Twitter. So #50messagesofholidaythanks was born, a small way to let the people at the other end of the @handle know they’re appreciated.

I encourage you to jump on Twitter, search the hashtag, and perhaps add a few messages of gratitude to #50messagesofholidaythanks.

Happy holidays and I hope your break is safe, enjoyable and filled with good people.
