THANK YOU...2 of the BIGGEST words in human language. Notice I said human language and not the English language. This phrase is recognized world wide. When it is said, it has the power to bring smiles, appreciation and even trust. I am writing about this for 2 reasons:
First: Yes, it is Thanksgiving in the United States and for Americans giving thanks for this country and all we have, all we create, and all we can do is truly something to be grateful for... With that said, I want to thank all those in my life- family, friends,fellow volunteers, business associates and clients for the support you have given me in my life and my career. This year has been a great year of growth both personally and professionally. I could not have and would not have done any growing without all of your help! Thank you! Have a great and blessed Thanksgiving !
Secondly: "Thank you" helps to identify appreciation for everything-the small things, the big things, things we think are insignificant-everything.
Say "thank you" when someone compliments what you're wearing; say "thank you" when someone tells yous your zipper is down:say "thank you" when the referee calls a penalty on you; say "thank you" when a salesperson or service tech or doctor or banker or plumber, etc., does their job; say "thank you" to yourself for waking up everyday doing the best you can even if your best doesn't seem like enough! Say thank you- show appreciation and bring a smile!
Appreciate that everyone has a story and that we need to respect that story. As I am writing this I am reminded of many stories of people that are struggling- struggling because of illness, family strife, homelessness, being bullied, joblessness-so many things. Everyone has struggles both big and small and no matter what those struggles may be to a person they are their struggles and they are significant.
So in closing be thankful for what you have and what people do, not only for you but what they do in the world. Appreciate yourself, those around you and especially the fact that your zipper is up!
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
YOU ARE THE... DIFFERENCE !!!
