Gratitude is often lacking in our world today. People are so wrapped up in their own lives that they forget to appreciate what others have done for them. Gratitude is a character trait that we should try to develop and nurture in our children and in each other. It’s quite simple to thank others for their support, thoughtfulness, helpfulness and caring.
Have you done things for others and have them go unappreciated or even unnoticed? As grounded as we may be spiritually, emotionally and or mentally, repeatedly feeling unappreciated can affect our sense of self. We all thrive and do better when we experience being appreciated, our well-being is uplifted. A little appreciation and gratitude can improve moods, situations, relationships and outcomes.
When we are blessed by others in surprising and unexpected ways, there are a number of ways to show our appreciation and gratitude. Simply saying, “thank you” is a great start. Writing thank you notes is another traditional way of expressing gratitude and nice to do when you have received a gift. It’s also thoughtful to do when someone has gone out of their wat to do something special for you.
When we let others know through our words or actions that we truly appreciate them, it uplifts them and causes a ripple effect of gratitude. It’s a good practice to acknowledge the ways that your family, friends and co-workers are been good to you in supportive and thoughtful ways.
Imagine what the our families, friendships and places of employment would be like if we showed more appreciation and gratitude. So how will you extend and show more gratitude and appreciation to others this upcoming week…..
With many blessings to you and yours,
