A Time for Gratitude: SFPCN Potluck Holiday Party

  • Dec 18, 2012 · 9:00 AM
  • Valencia Gardens

“Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.”
- Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy

It is our last gathering of 2012…

It has been a full year…

Our community convened for 48 weeks attempting to break the code for finding work…

Some of us have been hired for short periods of time, and some continue working…

We had coaches urge us to passion and action, and recruiters reveal best practices…

We charged ahead determined to succeed; we slumped convinced we’ll never work again…

We formed satellite success groups, and we started each day setting our own course…

And we networked far beyond our comfort zones…

Through it all, we have learned and grown...

Learned to be more patient, diligent and persistent…

Grown new skills, and deepened our talents…

Through it all, we continued….

This Tuesday, San Francisco Professional Career Network’s last of 2012…

We will share good food and drink, enjoy each others company, and express gratitude for what we have and who we are.

    It was great. It got me out of a deep funk I had been in by forcing me to look at my real life and find gratitude instead of comparing myself with some imaginary ideal.
