Thirty Days of Giving Thanks!

I think we are often grateful for people in our lives. One person can make quite the difference and not even realize the impact they have made. For a while now, I’ve been thinking about thanking some of the people who have made an impact in my life. A simple e-mail or a written thank you note can express how we feel and let that person know that they made a difference.

A Free Spirit Life is hosting Thirty Days of Giving Thanks. While I can’t say that I am writing a person a day, the idea was enough to finally get me started on my idea of sending thank you notes.

The result has been surprising. Most people had no idea of a small act of their own had greatly affected me. I was surprised at how much I had affected them. My thank yous have received their own thank yous  – not only for letting the person know about their impact but also for the impact I have made on that person’s life.

We often feel gratitude for the actions of others, but I think that we don’t express that nearly often enough. Thank you to all who have made a positive experience in my life and to those who provided opportunities for me to grow.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. Being more conscious of gratitude has been very powerful for me. It not only has helped me give back, but it has taught be a lot about receiving, too. Wishing you and your family a PEACE-filled start to your holiday season. xo
