Thank You: [thangk-yoo]

definition: expressing one’s gratitude or thanks.

When was the last time you received a genuine thank you? How did it make you feel?

Now think back. When was the last time you gave a genuine thank you or sent a thank you card? How did the person respond?

Did you know that for $4.99 or less, you could change the lives of 20 people with a simple card?

In today’s society, we live in a world of instant gratification. A like on a photo. A like on a Facebook post. Retweets of a funny tweet. Now, consider how it would feel if you came home and opened your mailbox and instead of a bill, you received a thank you card, and when you opened it, someone had told you, that some small act you overlooked changed their life. That would beat all the instant gratification of a like or retweet wouldn’t it?

I challenge you from here on out, to remember how someone has changed your life. Take 5 minutes of your life, write it down in a card, and change someone else’s life. Erykah Badu tweeted on 11/26/13 at 11:49AM “Write it down on real paper with a real pencil. And watch shit get real.”

Stay creative, Stay inspired, Stay awesome,

    I keep saying I’m going to start once a week sending out “happy mail” just because. Thanks for the reminder. I’m really going to do this. Starting Tuesday. (Payday)
