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.
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!
