I'm Thankful


Today is Thanksgiving, so I thought I would share some of what I'm thankful for this year. Don't worry, my post-Dreamforce recap will be coming in the next few weeks.

I'll give you some backstory first. So obviously, being an Australian, I did not grow up with Thanksgiving, aside from what I saw on TV and in movies, but that of course was American Thanksgiving. Then I learned Canada had a different Thanksgiving, so it became Canadian Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving. But now that I live here, it's Thanksgiving and American Thanksgiving. It's kinda like how before I used to refer to Hockey as Ice Hockey and Field Hockey as Hockey... it's part of my Canadianization. I'm sure these will also be questions that come up when I eventually take the Canadian citizenship test too!

So I digress... I know the majority of my readers are based in the US, and are wonderful people at that, so I'm sure most of you know that up here it's Thanksgiving today, and not in six weeks like the rest of the world think it is for everyone in North America!

And with everything that has happened this year - being one of the best in my working life so far, I wanted to share what I'm thankful for, from a professional stand point.

I'm thankful for the opportunity I've been given to learn to become the most #AwesomeAdmin I can be. I'm thankful for the resources I have at hand to be about to learn, including Trailhead, and the various conferences I've been able to attend. But most importantly, I am thankful for all the amazing people I have met this year, the Salesforce #Ohana.

Of all the new experiences I've had this year, making so many new friends has been the highlight by far, and I am thankful for each and every one of you. You are all truly amazing people, and I am in awe of how you all help each other at the drop of a hat, no questions asked. I am completely honoured to be able to be a a part of such a selfless group, and you all inspire me to be a better person.

So thank you Salesforce #Ohana - truly. I am so thankful for all the experiences I've had this year, with you, and I can't wait to see what is in store to come! Happy Thanksgiving!
