It is the most wonderful time of the year. The season of gratitude, family, yummy food, and vacation is here. On behalf of the Directive Health Team, we wanted to share what we are grateful for. 

I am first and foremost grateful to all those who have given it their all in order for me being able to breathe every day, living as a free person in the greatest country in the world, where dreams can come true. 

Family, dogs, oxygen and college football 

I am most thankful for my family’s health despite the recent covid-19 pandemic, we have had no major illnesses. 

Mountain views. Love. Health. Family. Puppy snuggles. 

A work-life balance is just as important as having a great family – you can’t enjoy one without the other, and with the right balance, the line between both is beautifully blurred. I’m thankful for having a blurred line.

Enjoy the day reflecting and resting. Here’s to you and a happy and healthy holiday!
