Mon – Gratitude

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s a lot of gratitude “stuff” floating around the Internet these days.  The “business” I’m in, began with a promise, to find a way that people could send appreciation spontaneously 24/7.  STOP….THIS POST IS NOT A SALES PITCH!!

Another company that I admire is inviting us to join a 30 day gratitude challenge program, of which I have become a participant.

Why?…..I know how good it feels when someone appreciates me.  Funny, but it even feels better when I reach out to appreciate someone else.  Honest!  A few days of sending out appreciation changes my energy, it’s a “miracle”.  Yes, we can create miracles right from where we are.

When’s the last time you expressed (not by an email, but mailed a surprise card or letter) your heart-felt appreciation to someone close to you?  We get so caught up in the day-to-day routines of our lives we often forget to do the simple things, that mean so much.  What about the other day, when someone you hadn’t spoken with in a long time popped into your mind?  (hopefully a good thought, if not, forgive them, and move on quickly) 

These days I seize the many opportunities to be thankful for the people who have touched my life, and there are many. 

I offer this idea to you:  Next time someone pops into your mind and makes you smile, don’t wait……get a card or note in the mail…..if you can’t do that, pick up the phone!  Don’t wait, that’s the secret!  I promise that you’ll be amazed at how many times these same people have been thinking of you, too.

YAY YOU!   love, sharon
