Make Today Matter - Write a Note of Gratitude


I recently bought a book from Simple Truths called “Every Monday Matters” which offers 52 ways to make a difference. It’s mostly about how ordinary people can do extraordinary good. You can fill a need, make someone smile, use less energy, be more neighborly, and make the world a better place very easily. The suggestion below illustrates the power of a simple note of gratitude.
Every week, the average person receives 682 emails, 12 text messages, 11 pieces of junk mail, and maybe (on a good week), one piece of personal mail. Feeling appreciated is one of the stongest human desires. There is warmth in a handwritten note – it instantly makes the message more personal, creates a more intimate feeling, and makes the recipient feel more valued. With e-mail and instant messaging so easy, a handwritten note is getting rarer and more special. A handwritten note costs less than a dollar to write and mail, and the relative value is priceless.

When was the last time you handwrote anything to anyone? Handwrite a note of gratitude to somebody today… just because. Quit watching the news which we can’t do anything about It can be a family member, co-worker, friend or just someone you haven’t spoken with in a long time. Thank them for what he or she brings to your life. They will appreciate the rarity of it and you will “Make Someone’s Day”!
