Don’t forget to say “thank you” today. Whether it be the clerk at the grocery store, your coworker who rubs you the wrong way sometimes, your dearest friend, your mom, your teenager who has had attitude with you for the tenth time today, your pastor, your employee, your ex spouse….the list goes on. Look them in the eye, smile and simply say,” thank you”. You will be amazed at how it lightens any tension that may be between you and how it enhances the bond that already exists. When we are kind toward others, and appreciative of them, there is an inner warmth that begins to expand throughout your body and soul.
Has someone extended a kindness toward you lately? Reciprocate with a thank you note, email or call. Is it someone’s birthday today? Take the time to go to the store, pick out a birthday card for them and send it. Have you been thinking about a loved one? Pick up the phone and call them. We all get so busy in this fast paced life but it’s the time when we STOP and thank those around us that it becomes special and light filled.
When we live life with gratitude we receive fields of beautiful flowers. Open your arms and enjoy the love that surrounds you!
