Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is the US holiday that we celebrate as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest of the preceding year. I define my personal harvest as everything that has come into my life that not only has enriched me, but also things that have thought me a lesson...and I had a plethora of both this year.

I want to thank my family for their love, support and their understanding as I continue to grow the Percy Sales Events brand. To my friends for the encouragement to do what I love to do. To my clients for trusting me to handle one of the most important days of their lives. To my colleagues for continually challenging me to be my best and for your support and love as well. I've been truly enriched by your presence in my life.

This year I've learned, as I do every year, who I am as a person, who I am as a wedding planner and event designer, who I am as a business owner. You never really stop learning about yourself, your abilities and your limitations. I guess if you stop learning you stop growing - and that would be kind of boring now that I think about it.

My one take away this year is to always trust my gut, to trust myself on things, people and situations...and I implore all of you to do it too. It's interesting how I've second guessed myself this year on something or someone,  only to be disappointed or added unnecessary stress in my life. Whereas...if I stuck with my original gut feeling it would have been so much more better. So...I vow to trust my "big" gut and to stop second guessing myself moving forward (I know easier said than done).

I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy reflecting on your own harvest for the year and give thanks to the many blessings that you have been given (even if you don't think there has been any - there are some jewels there when things become clear). LOVE with all your heart, LIVE life in the present, BELIEVE in yourself, and BE THANKFUL!

Let's Celebrate!
