Stop and Smell the Sunflowers
When’s the last time you said thank you?
Each day, we wake up and experience some degree of a routine. We somehow end up going through the motions and not stopping to look around and be thankful for what we have. It’s easy to get caught up in life’s commotion, but don’t forget to take a moment to stop and smell the sunflowers.
If you’ve found yourself complaining about having to wake up and go to school or work, remember that you were once hoping to get that opportunity. Maybe it’s time to say thank you to your boss for everything he or she does for you or thank a co-worker who helps you through those Mondays – you know the ones.
Maybe you have some family members who are there for you no matter what, and they deserve to hear a thank you.
It can be as simple as a text message or as extravagant as a random delivery of flowers and other goodies.
Not only will thanking people in your life make others feel better, but it will also have a positive effect on you. This creates an opportunity to think about all of the good things in your life and allows you to value people and experiences more.
It doesn’t have to take much time or any money. Saying thank you to those who help make your life a little easier creates a world of a difference!
