Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Morning Message! Today, I want to focus this message on gratitude, as we prepare for the Thanksgiving Day celebration. We can be grateful for specifics, but in reality gratitude is a state of being. It is impossible to be angry or scared or sad when gratitude is present. I know that the holiday season can be stressful for many, so I’d like to remind you that gratitude is a great way to manage the stress and anxiety. There is so much to be grateful for, and I am grateful for each of you who take the time to read this message every Monday. I am grateful for my team, the clients we serve, the agents and crew at RE/MAX Professionals, and my family. Without them, I would not be the man I am today. Happy Thanksgiving! Let’s make it a great week!
The Harvest Moon by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanesAnd roofs of villages, on woodland crestsAnd their aerial neighborhoods of nestsDeserted, on the curtained window-panesOf rooms where children sleep, on country lanesAnd harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests!Gone are the birds that were our summer guests,With the last sheaves return the laboring wains!All things are symbols: the external showsOf Nature have their image in the mind,As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves;The song-birds leave us at the summer’s close,Only the empty nests are left behind,And pipings of the quail among the sheaves.
WORDS OF INSPIRATION
“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.” - Henry Van Dyke
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” - William Arthur Ward
“To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.” - Victor Hugo
