I feel that as long as you’re thanking someone, it counts as thanking them. If you only write one thank you note, that’s okay. At least write one. For the rest of November, thank someone however feels the most real to you.
The benefit of thank you notes is that they can be kept after you write them. A compliment is forgotten quickly, but a thank you note can be seen and recalled to memory often.
And an added bonus: I am so much better at writing than I am at speaking.
So, our daily checklist looks something like this:
- Wake up and say it’s a glorious day
- Take 30 seconds to just be glad you’re alive.
- Look for the silver lining.
- Go for a walk
- write down 3 paragraphs about how you are blessed.
- Tell someone thank you.
See, we’re on day 11 and only have 6 things per day to do! That’s not too complicated. Ahh, the benefits of expounding instead of expanding.
