25 Days of Thanks- Day 23

Thankful- The Little Pushes Forward

Every now and again, we all need that little nudge…that little tiny shoulder shove that pushes us forward.  Sometimes it’s a physical whack upside the head to snap out of it.  Other times, it’s a verbal unexpected prompt or interjection that catches you off guard but is exactly what’s needed.

My brother and sister-in-law are excellent at these.

Whether it’s during my job search, the stuff earlier this year, or some recent events, I’m appreciative and thankful for how they both can be so effective at this kind of stuff.

The added bonus from these two is that these little pushes come at very surprising times.

A few months ago I was prepping for an interview and had a theme to what I wanted to say.  I chatted over Google with my brother and sister-in-law and shared with them the theme and some responses.

“But what about this…” comes out of my sister-in-law’s mouth.

And in my head I picture myself throwing all my notes in the air and responding, “Tell me more.  Oh and you’ve got five minutes before the interview starts…”

My brother is no less different.  That story for another time.

The two of them together make an exciting force.

While I know they will always have my back, I also know that they’ll always be pushing me to do better and be better.  I’m thankful for that looking forward into the future.

Thanks for reading…
