Giving Thanks In 2020

By Angela Dorsey

2020 has been a challenging year for sure, as so many of us have endured hardships, disappointments and a longing for life to get back to “normal”. However, we come together at this time of year to remember what’s important and to be grateful for what we have. This year, in the middle of a global pandemic and a charged election season, we think it’s more important than ever to celebrate Thanksgiving and turn our minds to our many blessings.

Gratitude In Hard Times

When COVID-19 shut our country down back in March, many of us took the time to slow down, reflect on what matters to us, and be grateful for both the small and significant things in life. I personally spent my days going back to the basics and turning my mind to the things I often take for granted, like health, shelter, and access to food, clean air, and clean water. 

Over the past 8 months, your endurance, patience, and perspectives have probably been tested more than ever. We encourage you to use this time of year to take a deep breath, shut out the noise, and celebrate, even if it looks different than usual! 

Relationships Matter

Many of us have missed countless family gatherings, making memories outside the home, and spending time with friends in 2020, which means we are probably all the more thankful when we do get the rare chance to safely be with loved ones! Even if you are not traveling to join with family this Thanksgiving or your traditions have to be modified, don’t forget to reach out to those in your life and share what they mean to you. 

I don’t know what I’d do without the support and encouragement of my family and friends, even if we’ve had to get creative with what that looks like this year! And then there are my incredible clients! We have missed having clients come in and out of our offices on a daily basis and seeing you in person. We are so thankful for the technology that allows us to build our relationships and be a support for you in these times, and we look forward to connecting with you when it is safe to resume life as usual. We are so thankful for you! 

We hope that your Thanksgiving leaves you refreshed and recharged and ready to look forward with hope. Through it all, we at Dorsey Wealth Management are here for you and your family, just a phone call away. Reach out to us at (310) 370-7776 or angela@dorseywealth.com with your questions, concerns, or just to touch base before the end of the year. Happy Thanksgiving!
