Gratitude: Thank You

The two most powerful words: Thank You.

Thank you. How many times a day do you say it? It's polite to say, "Thank You," but do you say it as an automatic response, or do you really mean it and feel the gratitude that the words convey? I would wager most people fall in the automatic response category, but to truly feel gratitude and mean it is a magical thing.

Challenge yourself to feel the gratitude in your words when you thank someone.  When others say Thank You, smile and say with deliberate intent, You're Welcome, and mean it. The exchange of gratitude and appreciation is a magical thing if it is done with feeling and intent.

Thank You. Thank you for reading this, thank you for contemplating deliberate gratitude and appreciation, but most of all, thank you for just being you.


If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart
