The Importance of Acknowledgement 

Today I have something to say. It extends from gratitude. Anyone who has ever had down times and spoken to me for any length of time knows that I am fully into gratitude journaling, in a myriad of forms. 

Gratitude journaling is ultimately for the individual. The impact it yields for others is unintentional and often, very subtle. 

I think that needs to be extended into acknowledging what other people do and even who they are to us. 

What I mean by this, is that if someone helps us or does something for us or makes us feel that the world is perfect for a minute, then acknowledge it. Tell them. 

Acknowledge the good that others do. Make it part of your daily practice as much as gratitude journaling should be. 

I think it could change the world. 

Almost overnight. 

To start this year, public acknowledgement goes to … 

Ann, my writing mentor, who pulls apart my work brilliantly, inspiring my passion to keep writing and to keep working to get better. One day I will show and not tell (hopefully) effortlessly. Thank you!
