We've all had a rough time lately with the recent FTX crisis, and many of us have probably been feeling anxious, depressed, angry, betrayed, confused, etc., and worried about our funding, our careers, our future, and the future of EA.
The American Thanksgiving holiday is coming up in a couple of days, which is traditionally a time for reconnecting with family and friends, and focusing on the many things to be thankful for in life. Also, there's considerable research from positive psychology that 'gratitude exercises' can promote happiness and health.
So, I thought it might be helpful for EAs to do a little gratitude exercise here on EA Forum, focused on ways that -- despite the recent crisis -- you're still thankful for EA ideas, insights, ideals, organizations, colleagues, and friendships.
In the comments below, please share one or two brief ways that you're grateful for being involved in the EA movement. I hope we can take a step back from the recent news, reconnect with why we care about EA, and find some positivity this week.
