Happy Monday My Friends,
Last week’s Q-Tip we focused on building character and doing actions without expecting anything in return but as the saying goes there are two sides to a coin. As a stepping stone to further grow our character we should also be very open to sharing our appreciation, so for this week’s message to further developing character, let’s say:
“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.” (James Allen)
We take for granted that others know how grateful we are for their kindness and thoughtfulness towards us. We don’t really need to send a card or make a phone call, do we? But think how touched we are when someone sends us a special thank-you. Thanking others is not merely a social formality. It is an act of kindness and thoughtfulness in its own right.
NOTE TO SELF: If someone is kind to me, I can certainly take the time to write a thank-you note or to call them. (Linda Picone)
The heart that gives, gathers. (Lao Tzu)
Do every act of your life as if it were your last. (Marcus Aurelius)
Hugging is the most beautiful form of communication, that allows the other person to know beyond a doubt that they matter (Madly Odd)
We all truly matter and we should take the extra minute to not take each other for granted ever and just say THANK YOU. Two small words that could make all the difference in the world in someone’s day.
Until next Monday, wishing everyone a wonderful week
