Thanks for all you do. Thank you for a great job on that report. Thank you for taking the call.
Thank you for your help. Thank you for not forgetting. Thank you for your generosity.
Thank you for doing what no one else thought to do.
Tomorrow is the annual beloved holiday that we in the U.S. call Thanksgiving. It is the time where people throughout the country gather with family, friends and loved ones to express their gratitude for the blessings in their lives.
The ability to recognize when good things happen to you and fully appreciate it is in itself a radical act.
It’s because we often take those blessings for granted.
We take for granted that we have a job. There are many out of work.
We take for granted that we have a home. There are those who are homeless.
We take for granted that we’re healthy. There are many who are not.
When we take the time to appreciate all that we have, we’re also acknowledging the tide could have turned in another direction. We could be out of work, homeless and in poor health.
And maybe you are in poor health or out of work. Is there still something for which to be grateful?
Of course there is. There always is.
Tomorrow, remember all of the blessings that you’ve been given and give thanks.
But just don’t let it stop there.
Start thanking people for what they do. For what they say. For what they give to you.
Thank the overworked cashier for her service and her friendly smile.
Thank your boss for helping you stay on track and the role she fills for the company.
Thank your spouse for loving you at your most unlovable self.
Thank your close family members for being there for you.
Thank your friend for believing in you.
No matter who you are, and no matter what your position is on the ladder of success, you have people to thank for helping you.
Some may think it’s not a big deal to thank people but trust me. It is.
Because so few do it.
So thank you, if you are a regular reader, for reading my posts. And if this is your first time here, thank you for stopping by. I generally write posts that focus on copywriting, marketing, and content marketing.
But today, I’m full of gratitude for this wonderful thing called the Internet and the ability it gives to virtually expand my arms so I can hug you. If you knew me in person, you’d understand. :-)
