Life is crazy – and don’t we all know it! We run around pursuing our goals, reaching for our dreams. We strive to be successful and happy. But sometimes we forget to take the time to appreciate all the joys along the way. Life is not just about reaching our destination, it is also about the journey. It is about learning, exploring and growing. It is about taking the time to recognize, acknowledge and appreciate the goodness around you, the little acts of kindness that others do when your paths cross.
So today, I charge you with this task: Whether it’s a husband, child, friend, or stranger, I would like to ask you to take a few moments today to let someone know how much you appreciate what they did for you. Write a little note of thanks, put it on their pillow, lunch box or in the mail, don’t just add it to the list of things to do – take that one small moment now to pause the rest of your busy life, to let others know how much you appreciate them.
