Do you have those days when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
You work long hours, you have bills piling up, the house is a mess and there is never enough time to spend with your kids.
What if on those really bad days – and the good days – you woke up and the first thing you did was to be thankful.
Day 349: Give 349
Today’s give was inspired by my friends at The Note Project. On Day 166 I featured The Note Project who’s goal is to inspire 1,000,000 notes of appreciation to be sent around the world. They believe that sending a note of appreciation can change a persons life, your own and the world. I completely agree.
Now for the magic recipe! 1 note of appreciation + being thankful everyday and you may just see some magic start to happen. If you wake up grateful every day for just one thing in your life your outlook will become more positive. It will rub off on your family, your co-workers and the world around you.
It’s the ripple effect in full force. When you are thankful in your life for what you have (not what you don’t have) it will make you more likely to give. You don’t have to have a lot to give but what a great give to tell one person in your life how thankful you are for them. What a great give to tell a co-worker how thankful you are for their support.
It turns our crazy world from an angry, sad one to one of giving and love.
The Thankful for project will help to remind you to be thankful every day. It’s a community of people that are sharing what they are thankful for to spread the good around.
“Research shows that saying “thank you” for the good stuff in life makes for a happier, healthier you. And it makes those around you feel pretty darn good, too. So spread the love.”
