Couldn’t have said it better.
“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” – Henry Ward Beecher
Wake up – life is blooming with gifts to be opened and shared, with gratitude. Be grateful and express it early and often. A simple and sincere “thank you” is like giving someone a fragrant bouquet of flowers. Every single day, we have dozens of opportunities to express thanks – the coffee shop cashier, a co-worker, a sister, a friend. Our lives expand when we move outside of ourselves and our expectations of how others should treat us. Don’t hold out or back. Be selfish and go first in giving thanks and attention to others and take several turns. No strings attached but the ones that pull at your heart and theirs. Thank you – that was easy. Out loud and loud!
