Joe Beavin believes it’s important to be mindful of the good things in life and to take the time to be grateful — because gratitude doesn’t just “happen.”
“A person who sees and is grateful for the good around him or her is more likely to perpetuate what is good and to help ‘lift up’ that which still needs lifting,” said the Baptist Health Foundation Board Member. Gratitude “feeds upon itself,” he added, and “creates a positive vibe.”
Joe spots gratitude in people who exhibit a positive attitude, appreciate their surroundings, and lead a life of service without looking for personal gain — attributes he strives to exemplify in his own life.
“Gratitude is an attitude: recognizing the good that exists and is constantly happening around you,” he said. And it’s a way of life that “imparts a sense of peace.”
When asked what he’s most grateful for, Joe said: “I am most grateful to be blessed with a wonderful family and to be afforded the good health that enables me to pursue various opportunities.”
