One of the most beautiful things about this project has been its ability for people to be perfectly candid in their expressions of gratitude (in what ever form they may make it- at the library, on a window…). Does that come with anonymity? The freedom to say how you feel so openly? Testimonials thus far say that there is happiness that comes after engaging in such an act of openness with ourselves.
And there it is on display. For all to see.
One thing this project can teach us is this: don’t hold back in expressing your gratitude. It can be cathartic, uplifting, rejuvenating, releasing, and down right awesome.
On that note, if you have been following this project for 1 day or now, 34 days, sometimes our feelings of gratitude call us to do more. Whether that be writing a thank you note or calling someone to say a long over due ‘thanks’ or whether that be giving in the form of charity. Check out our link to ‘Charities that Jumpstart Gratitude’ above to tap into spreading some of that goodness along.
The great thing about ‘Gratitude’- there’s more than enough ways to not only feel it and express it, but it can spur you on to take the first step in changing the life of someone who would be ever so grateful to you for your effort.
So go ahead. Don’t hold back.
What are you grateful for today?
