Are You Giving It?

Today is Thanksgiving here in the States. A day that many families come together and give thanks for all the blessings in their lives. I think it is a great tradition … gather together – have a delicious meal together … and enjoy each others and the blessings in your lives.

I know there is some controversial ‘history’ about Thanksgiving … I personally don’t go there. I know some will say I am shallow … I say I’m staying in the NOW! Remember I’m the person who teaches to get out of your old stories that do not serve or honor you! So … I am certainly not going to get involved in the old stories of years past. Hopefully those old stories have served us … as the human race is a bit more refined now!  😉

I’m also the person who teaches … If you want a life that you appreciate … focus on the things you appreciate … and the Universe will continually supply you with more to appreciate! That is the Law of Attraction at work!

I belong to an appreciation group on facebook. As I was writing my appreciation yesterday in this group and talking about Thanksgiving … I started thinking … we should also have an Appreciation Giving Day! 😀  I write out 3-5 things I appreciate every day … and many times those things are about other people….  but I don’t always tell those people … I just tell the Universe.

How do we let others know we appreciate them?  Well we can outright tell them so! That is easy with your family and close friends… But what about the person who just held the door for you? Many of us say “thank you” in a robotic way … Do you look straight into their eyes when you say “thank you”?

I’ve seen with my own eyes what a difference when you can catch that person’s eye and say “Thank You” with a big smile on your face. I have actually seen people’s expression first look a bit confused …. we are all used to those robotic thank you’s … and then see a big smile take over their face. Makes my day to see this – truth is I’m the one that ends up with even more appreciation!  😀

So instead of just an Appreciation Giving day here and there… I am going to purposely be more aware of how I can let someone know I appreciate them. This is a Win/Win … They feel good … and I feel even gooder!  😉

So ….What are some good ways you let people know you appreciate them? Please share …    😉

Well Ellie, I appreciate you and our weekly calls, LOA, Arron who set up PDP where we met, your love and support.
I do keep a gratitude journal and each day I write 5 things I am grateful for and why I am grateful for them. This is a powerful process and empowering and life shifting
love and hugs
