Sometimes we think a project is too grand and too complicated and these beliefs prevent us from even taking action. Creating and delivering expressions of gratitude can be as easy as sitting down with a pen and a notepad.
Here’s how you can get started today.
- Write the name of a person who has influenced your life at the top of the page.
- Write down simple bullet points of what difference that person made in your life.
- Deliver your message. This can be a phone call, a meeting, a letter, a song or a poem. Do it in your own way. Make it comfortable for you and for the recipient.
There are a great deal of things that come from expressing your feelings of gratitude towards these people – most of all – peace of mind. If anything were to happen to you or the other person, there would be nothing left unsaid.
The New Year is a time for reflection on what was wonderful, who made a difference and what changes we would like to make going forward. That is why the New Year is a perfect time to take action.
