At Dwayne Bergmann Interiors, we are declaring November as Gratitude Month! That means taking the time to reflect on our blessings, appreciate the trials that made us stronger, and give thanks while giving back. It is never too early to learn the lessons – and rewards! – of gratitude, so Dwayne shares his family-friendly tips for setting intentions and taking action. 2020, with all its challenges, presented all of us with the opportunity to see the silver lining, feel empowered in what we can control, and recognize everything we have to be grateful for. Gratitude is a lifelong pursuit, but we encourage you to make this November the start of your intentional gratitude journey with us!
Through his daily meditation practice, Dwayne thoughtfully sets his intentions and focus on appreciation and mindfulness. The concept of meditation may seem intimidating or complicated from the outside, but even simple breathing exercising can be profoundly effective. Set a daily time for yourself, without interruption or distraction. For Dwayne it’s first thing in the morning, kicking off his routine in a positive mindset. Clear your mind of external influence by focusing on your breathing. It helps to count inhales and exhales to keep your breathing steady. Along with your mindful breathing, take a moment to dwell on what in your life you have to be grateful for, no matter how insignificant it might seem. Rewarding ourselves with positive self-talk for accomplishments big and small is guaranteed to boost our mood and instill a sense of encouragement to keep on our path.
Pro tip: Thoughts about work, kids, home life, politics, health and safety are bound to creep in, but remember it’s a practice! The more you work on compartmentalizing the NOW from everything else, the easier it will become over time.
Appreciating what you have is only half the battle. True gratitude comes in the form of what you put back out into the world, or in Dwayne’s case, his community. This year has been more difficult than most for all of us, but certainly some more than others. Lend your time, donations, prayers, and resources to those less fortunate in an effort to put a smile on a deserving person’s face. Whether it’s volunteering at your local shelter, participating in charitable events, or sending positive reminders of your support to loved ones that may need to hear it, there is no act of gratitude too small to make a big impact. For Dwayne, his commitment to donating his services to charitable foundations and organizations is a cornerstone of his business. From The Ronald McDonald House to the Lee Association of Remarkable Citizens, children’s charities to the arts, Dwayne’s passion for giving back is woven into his firm’s DNA.

We’re all in this together so we at DBI encourage everyone to do their part in moving the needle of helping others ever-forward.
Little ones learn by example, so it is imperative that we teach the next generation about the importance of gratitude. Instilling the value of appreciation for what you have and compassion for those less fortunate is the greatest gift Dwayne has passed on to his boys. As a family, they regularly share their blessings with each other as little reminders of what truly matters in life. Spread the love this month by having your kiddos make crafts with messages of gratitude and thankfulness to share with your local nursing home, hospital, first responders, grocery store, and schools. Be sure to reward these acts of kindness with praise and encouragement so being thankful becomes second nature.
At Dwayne Bergmann Interiors we’re thankful for you, our clients, friends, family, vendors, and partners. We humbly thank you for your confidence in us to turn your dreams into reality, for inspiring our creativity and fueling our passion.
