John F. Kennedy said “we must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.

Thank you is a powerful statement. According to thank you is defined “as an expression of gratitude used to show appreciation for something.”  There are all types of thank you’s that can take place. You can thank someone for their kindness, a service, even for doing something that you are expecting they will do. Being a fan of the thank you’s I love to give them and it feels really nice being on the receiving end. Spiritually for me, angels and the universe are included in my thank you’s as well.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust

The psychology of being thankful and sharing thank you’s can create a ripple of good. According to Greater Good Magazine by Berkely.Edu “researchers studying gratitude found that being thankful and expressing it to others is good for our health and happiness. Not only does it feel good, it also helps us build trust and closer bonds with the people around us. These benefits have mostly been observed in a two-person exchange—someone saying thanks and someone receiving thanks. Now, a new study suggests that expressing gratitude not only improves one-on-one relationships, but could bring entire groups together—inspiring a desire to help and connect in people who simply witness an act of gratitude.” Your actions of gratitude and thanks, being on the receiving end of gratitude and thanks, has the potential to bring ENTIRE groups of people to together, inspire a desire to help, because someone witnessed gratitude and thank you in action.

There is a tiny buddha quote that says “You might think that you don’t matter in this world BUT because of you someone has a favorite mug to drink their tea out of each morning that you bought them. Someone hears a song on the radio and it reminds them of you. Someone has read a book you recommended to them and gotten lost in it’s pages. Someone remembered a joke you told them and smiled to themselves on the bus. Never think you don’t have an impact. You fingerprints can’t be wiped away from the little marks of kindness that you’ve left behind.”

So thank you amazing person. Thank you for all you do, who you are, and how you make this world a better place. You have the power and influence to create ripples of good all around you by your actions. And if you haven’t told anyone, or anything (thank you delicious cup of coffee) thank you today go do it. It will feel really good and you will inspire others too.

Thank you for bringing your awesomeness to the world💜
