Least Favorite Job Search Phase
Thanksgiving Thanks Print
Written by Abby Kohut   

Each year on Thanksgiving, I take the time to reflect and appreciate all of the people and opportunities in my life that have helped me get to where I am today, both personally and professionally.

I am thankful for all of the feedback each of you has given me about my books and my Career Wake Up Calls - your thoughts help me continuously make improvements and I am grateful that you offer it. I am thankful that I have been able to meet so many of you at in-transition group presentations in NY, NJ, PA, CT & California. I am thankful that I am on my way towards my goal of helping one million people with their job search and I am thankful that the job market appears to be improving so that many of you will be fortunate to land within the coming months.

I am thankful for my two eyes which I use to see your smiles, my two ears which I use to hear your comments, my brain which I use to invent new ways to assist job seekers, and for my heart which pumps the blood through my veins and helps me express my thoughts.

I am thankful that despite how difficult life sometimes may seem, things it always work out in the end. Patience and determination are the skills we have all developed this year.
Absolutely Abby’s Advice:
We've all had challenges this year, yet we each have many things to be proud of and thankful for. If you find yourself feeling down during this holiday season, think of all the people in the world who are less fortunate. Think of the homeless and the hungry on the streets in your local neighborhood. Think of the children in distant countries who only have one article of clothing to wear and those who have to work to support their family when they should be in school. Think of the soldiers fighting for our freedom. Take a step back and then say thanks today for all that you have been blessed with this year. Most of all, be thankful that you are able to enjoy another day of life on this planet with loved ones besides you and a turkey on your table. That, my friends, is the most important thing to be thankful for. Make appreciation a key ingredient on the plate you serve from, starting today.
