We’ve been talking a lot about gratitude here lately. It protects us from indifference and allows us to be the kind of friends we want to have! I wholeheartedly believe that a heart of gratitude must be at the foundation of our mindset to live the lives we imagine!
Today, we’re going to talk about expressing gratitude. It’s not only important for us to feel grateful, but it is equally as important for us to express that emotion to the people in our lives!
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and boy, are we grateful for our kids’ teachers! They are so kind, they look after our sweet boys, and help them learn some amazing stuff… like reading! The idea of teaching a kid to read boggles my mind! We got them these beautiful flowers (you can check them out on my IG feed!), and though it’s a small token of thanks, I hope they can see our hearts. We are so grateful for them.
It got me thinking about how or if I express gratitude to the people in my life, and how it brings such joy when they express it to me.
The other day, Chris turned to me and said, “Do you know that you are the number one factor that has led to my success?”
Umm, I didn’t cry. Maybe just a little. Isn’t that one of the sweetest things you’ve ever heard?! I thought it was. It made my day.
Occasionally, I think to write notes to Chris telling him how glad I am that I married him, but to be honest, I rarely do that to other people in my life.
So, today let’s challenge ourselves! Seriously, this is one of the most simple, yet profound challenges you can do!
Write down 3 people you are grateful for, and what you appreciate about them. Then, write them a letter – snail mail, an email, a FB message. Let ‘em know!
In the comments, let me know who you’re writing! 😉 Talk to you soon!
