We must send thank you cards after receiving gifts because it's proper. We should send thank you cards to clients and customers to thank them for their business. But what about saying thank you just because we're truly thankful?
Consider all the things to be thankful for. There is at least one really positive thing every day in our lives and for that we can be thankful.
Some people believe that whatever energy you put out into the world, be it positive or negative, it will be returned to you. Some psychologists think that a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness may help relieve stress. So if your feeling down, saying thank you may lift your spirits and make you more optimistic.
Consider thanking someone today for absolutely no reason other than to give thanks to that person. Thank your boss or a co-worker for doing such a great job this year. Thank someone you know who has donated a lot their time this year to a good cause. Thank someone for just being a good friend.
So...make someone's day today by saying thank you.
