Instant Gratification Examples and What You Should Do Instead

Let’s be honest, we saw this year going differently in our minds. 👀

It felt like we were still recovering from the maelstrom of madness that was 2020, and then in a sudden flash, an entire year had passed. 

So we decided to step back and draw a deep breath, taking time to consider the victories, successes and meaningful moments of 2021 – from the seemingly insignificant to the life-changing. And let me tell you, the growth and change we saw was beautiful.

Of our company’s core values, one stands out amongst the rest, especially during this time of year: “Value the Present While Always Moving Forward”

This Thanksgiving, we at Blue Summit Supplies are taking a little extra time to do just that. Not just to value what has passed, but what we have in this present moment, and why we couldn’t be more grateful.

I'm thankful for both personal and professional families, never have I been more loved, challenged and accepted. Outside of that I am also thankful for those special individuals who have inspired me – inspired me by taking interest and using their valuable time. It's this curiosity, this thirst to expand their understanding and compassion that makes me thankful and hopeful for what the future will bring for all of us.

This year, I'm thankful for all the small, unhurried, in-between moments: laughing on the office couch with my coworkers, eating at a restaurant with my husband, gathering with family just because, hugging friends' necks. 2021 brought a bit of return to normalcy, but with it a new appreciation for the everyday treasure of waking up and getting to do what I love with people I love.

I am thankful to work at a company that challenges me and pushes me to continue to grow both personally and professionally. No day is uneventful and it's exciting to design solutions for issues and know that my company trusts and believes in me. I am also thankful for my family, friends, and rediscovering my passion for reading.
