We all have at least one person in our lives for whom we are so grateful. There are the obvious answers like mom, dad, sister, brother, or friend, but are there more? Of course! How often do you tell them? Oops. Yeah, I’m guilt, too.
Although we may feel appreciative, we often forget to express that to others. Let’s change that! Now more than ever your friends and family need a reason to smile and you can be that reason.
Every week or month choose a few people or just one person to write a little note to expressing your gratitude. It doesn’t have to be some long, poetic novel diving into every small detail of how they’ve impacted your life. It can simply be a few words about how much you love and appreciate them. Maybe specify something they’ve done for you recently or something they do for you consistently.
Thank your mom for all the times she did your laundry or cooked you a meal. Thank your friend who helped you smile on a bad day. Thank your favorite barista for making your coffee just how you like it. Small gestures have grand results.
Spreading thankfulness to those around you can impact them greatly, and create a domino effect of gratitude in the lives of those they come into contact with, as well.
