Small acts of gratitude can be so powerful. They can add a new depth to our lives that we never knew existed. Keeping small notes of gratitude or sending them to someone else can really enhance your everyday life. Ready to begin living a more gracious life?
Write Them DownKeep cute post-it notes or a small notebook in your purse or car to jot down little things you're grateful for throughout the day. You can even keep them in the "Notes" app of your iPhone! Rarely do we make time to reflect on these things. When you actually write it out and leave out the reminders, you can focus more on these positive things vs. the negative things that pop up. Reflect on the things you are grateful for wherever you go, no matter how big or small they are.
Share Your GratitudeWriting "thank you" notes for others don't have to be just for special occasions. A note to your mom for babysitting the kids, or for a coworker for giving you a ride to work will drive the point of how grateful you are for these small acts of kindness sent your way. Hopefully others you thank can do the same for people in their lives!
Pass it on!Never underestimate the power of the little things. Buy the person behind you in line at the coffee shop their coffee, share a smile with those you encounter throughout your day. You never know the power of a simple act of kindness improves the day of others. Gratitude can be passed on in many ways, you have the power to share it!
