Creative Ways to Say, "Thank You"
Taking time to express gratitude for the people in our lives - friends, family, colleagues or clients - is a gift for us as much as it is for them. And sometimes we want to find an extra special way to say, "thanks for being awesome!" Here are some ways to show gratitude that friends and family won't forget.
1) Give the gift of your complete attention. Invite that special person out for some one-on-one time over lunch or a walk and BE there 100%. Set the intention beforehand to be fully present and engaged with them. What wonderful things could you appreciate about them that you might have missed before?
2) Be specific, rather than a general thank you. Take some time to think about that person very individually. What do they bring into your life that is unique and special?
3) Consider making a thank you gift yourself. Something you have personally created is always a treat to receive. Even if you're not particularly crafty, simple baked goods or a handwritten note show gratitude in a personal, creative way.
So, give your "thanks" freely as you work to spread holiday cheer to those around you.
Happy holidays to you!
