Thank you for this thoughtful post, Shahrzad.

I love your perspective of bringing gratitude into one’s review of one’s career/work history. It is so true that the skills, knowledge, expertise, as well as friendships and mentors that we have developed from [or at] one position inevitably help prepare us for subsequent opportunities.

Furthermore, reviewing with gratitude one’s career past can be a way of improving your present/future position because it may assist you in currently performing better at work and inspire additional items to add to your resume.

As Melody Beattie states: “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

Thank you so much, Dorlee, for stopping by, and for your kind and thoughtful comment!

I think you're quite right. The ability to find something to feel thankful for can certainly help us in our current situation, and there is every chance that at least one thing from our experience will prove useful in a future opportunity.

I love the quote you shared! How beautiful! Thank you so much for introducing me to it.

Thanks again for your visit, and for kindly sharing your wisdom!
