I believe that actively expressing gratitude is one of the most effective acts of Good you can do for yourself, and that it has a ripple effect on everyone you touch with it. Therefore, I’m determined to be actively grateful in 2014. I want to be on the record about it, so here’s a space where I want to document and/or collect at least one expression of gratitude for every day in the year – not necessarily once a day, but a total of 365 expressions of gratitude. I will express gratitude ACTIVELY and OUT LOUD to OTHER PEOPLE, and I’ll record it here! I’ll chip in, and I invite you to join me!
I’ve been weathering a breakup for the last couple of weeks, and my friends have been so kind and so supportive. They have been calling and sending texts and offering love, listening, kindness, and ice cream. I feel like I have been showered with a million little acts of compassion when I really needed exactly that, and I have been thanking them each for their friendship and support.
