The Gratitude Challenge Week 8: Who inspires you?

ezgif-6-38c760b0b5b3_new.gif

 

Seasons greetings, Beauty Insider Community! The Gratitude Challenge is all about spreading the love and recognizing the people in your life that have made a difference (big or small) in your own life -- either IRL or virtually in the BIC! Celebrating the holidays might look a little different this year, which is why we wanted to take the time – in the midst of basket-building and sale-shopping -- to give thanks for what makes this Community so great (ALL OF YOU!) and encourage you to do the same with us.

Each week will have a different theme, and a new opportunity to give a shoutout to a special someone (or multiple people!) that fits that description for you. Don’t forget to tag their BIC username if they’re on Community! And if you get tagged, be sure to return the favor and keep the gratitude train goin’. 😊

 

  • Week 1 (11/6 – 11/12): someone who can always put a smile on your face 😃
  • Week 2 (11/13 – 11/19): someone who gives great product advice and recommendations 💄
  • Week 3 (11/20 – 11/26): someone you’re thankful for 🦃
  • Week 4 (11/27 – 12/3): a new friend in your life 👬
  • Week 5 (12/4 – 12/10): someone who sends the best memes! 🤣
  • Week 6 (12/11 – 12/17): someone who deserves a lil extra love 💞
  • Week 7 (12/18 – 12/24): someone with the best holiday spirit 🎁
  • Week 8 (12/25 – 12/31): someone who inspires you 🤩

 

Who are you grateful for? Shout-out or tag the special people in your life by replying below!  😊

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

@TeamBIC I'm thankful for my grandmother, and my childhood friend Megan.  If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have all the great memories I carry with me today ❤️

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

I am thankful for my Mom, she's pretty much the only other person I've had contact with consistently throughout this pandemic.  My mom is my normal, and that's a sentence I'd never thought I'd say.

 

I'm thankful for being able to "escape here."  It's been odd for me, not just this year, but for the past 2.5 years.  It's nice to come to a positive space, and everyone here has been pretty kind.

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

I'm so very thankful for our frontline health workers. I am so grateful for the risks and sacrifices they make each and every day. I'm also thankful to all of the teachers out there who have had to revamp all of their course materials to allow children to learn virtually. I'm also thankful for the increased voter turnout we saw during this US 2020 election. Thank you, too, for all of the lovely BIC members here for making this such a supportive community. ❤️

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

@PrettyPaint I agree to thank all of the frontline health workers.  Currently they have a challenging job and  have been supportive to all of those who are in need.  Amazing!  

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

First, I want to thank @sprocketta for starting up the covid check in thread which has given BIC members the chance to keep tabs on each other and support each other through this difficult time.

Like others in this thread, I'm thankful for essential workers, especially frontline healthworkers, many of whom I call family. They have been going to work at hospitals and LTC homes, swallowing the risks and pushing back the exhaustion while watching case numbers soar. An old family friend has already experienced a death in her family because she contracted covid in her workplace, an LTC home. To have not even risked and ultimately sacrificed your own life, but the life of a loved one, to provide necessary medical and emotional care to others, is an unspeakable tragedy. Most people go on believing bad luck and tragedy will visit someone else but we must remember we are all "someone else" to someone else.

 

I know not everyone has the privilege of wfh and being isolated so I'm also thankful for everyone who has exercised what privileges they have to protect those who cannot reduce their own risk to the same degree, who have been following safety guidelines, masking up whenever possible, and have passed on the social outings, family gatherings and hugs in order to put the collective safety of others first. Extra points if you managed to convince a recalcitrant family member to put off a big indoors family gathering!!

 

I'm also super thankful to all healthworkers who are not on the frontlines, but who are keeping our governments and policies accountable and researchers giving their all in developing a vaccine for us. 

⚕️❤️😷❤️

 

Finally, I am very grateful to all the activists, grassroots groups, social service organizations, politicians and all those who continue to advocate for those most negatively impacted by the pandemic.

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

Thank you @pocketvenus I never expected the extent of perspective and support to come from it. I have found your posts there particularly eye-opening and incredibly reasonable and helped me understand this new reality much better. Thank you for that.

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

@sprocketta Thank you for your continued updates there! It helps for people to read and know they are not alone. I have also learned a lot from the thread too! It's one thing to read about other cities in the news and another to hear from regular people who are living there. I'm so glad you found my posts helpful <333

Re: The Gratitude Challenge Week 3: Who are you thankful for?

I am so thankful for all of my BT/BIC Babes Heart There are literally more of y'all that I will be able to tag, so please don't be offended if I can't fit you into this post lol. Also, I've been so blessed to meet some of y'all in person and talk to you every day and now I am having a hard time remembering your username 😄 Thank you Sephora for bringing us all together! Now can we please talk about Sephoria 2021?!
