Pick Me Up: Thank You

What is the one word or phrase that immediately cheers you up when you hear it?

Thank you.

It’s amazing how these two words of gratitude can instantly uplift your mood. In a time where we tend to get through our days just trudging along without feeling all that remarkable to the world outside, it’s nice to know when a person actually notices you and believes in you. For someone to acknowledge something you’ve done and appreciate you for making life a little better is one of the most rewarding feelings.

I try my best not to take good people’s good deeds for granted and to recognize acts of kindness by giving a sincere ‘thank you’ (and looking them directly in the eyes when saying it means a great deal as well).

We all need a little encouragement to know that we’re doing okay after all.

Thank you.
