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
