28 Days of Adding Happiness – Give Away your Gratitude

Thank youThe moment that we have bad service of that somebody doesn’t smile at as, we tend to complain. Any bad experience certainly doesn’t go unnoticed. We quickly hop online to write up a bad review or speak to the manager, but how often do those positive interactions get noticed. Sure, we might add a little more to the tip at a restaurant or smile at a stranger who opened the door for us, but honestly, how often do you really go out of your way when somebody makes your day or helps you out?

In the last few months, my husband and I have been trying to recognize these moments and situations a bit more. Have you ever seen those trucks that ask “How’s my Driving?” and list a phone number to call? We’ve actually called those numbers to give compliments to a diver who is driving well. It surprises the people on the other end of the phone line when they realize we are calling about a compliment instead of a complaint. Little things like this can make somebody’s day. It really can mean a lot to somebody.

Today, I want to offer you a way to make these people realize that they are appreciated; to show them that their kindness has not gone unnoticed. Go ahead and download these adorable little thank you notes. You can print them out and cut them apart. Then, carry them around with you. When somebody acts kindly or in a way that puts a smile on your face, give them one of these little cards! It will surprise them a whole lot. I guarantee that! If you really want to add a special touch, you can even write a short note on the back letting them know what they did to make your day.
