I found this quote several months ago and use it over and over again on Social Media (@optioneerJM) to show appreciation for others including me in some way..
It is nice to give credit to those who inspire you, support you and make you want to flourish and do better.
. After spending horrendous hours over the past weekend in escalations and support for major corporation, where people were constantly discontent and expecting more, more and more.
It reminds me how small the words "thank you" are yet are withheld so often as a demonstration of ego, power or arrogance. It means manners to me and is something we should continuously reinforce as much as we can.
As we head into the holiday season, regardless of our faith or religious background, we should be reflective and never withhold appreciation for those that are important to us, whether fleeting or firmly entrenched in our lives.
I want to celebrate my friends, family, but mostly acknowledge and appreciate everyone and anyone. Without any of you, I am nothing. I don't want to be a void or blink when someone hears my name. I would like to be known as someone who makes a difference. However small or short term.
I want to thank you for accepting my friendship, liking my posts, inspiring me daily. Goodness knows, there is enough negativity in this world. Let us reach out and give thanks as much as possible..... it is contagious.
"Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought,
doesn't come from a store"
~ Dr. Seuss
People automatically smile when you take the time to thank them. The acknowledgement can be more powerful than you can imagine. Try it. It is something that we should be spreading around more often.
It costs nothing while priceless. Thank YOU. Merci. Danka. Gracias.

rejoicing, but of reflection"
