My older sister and I received a text on Sunday from our baby sister who was attending a bi-annual Women’s Retreat. She acknowledged us for the ways we had contributed to her life when she was a child and now as an adult.
The text meant a tremendous amount to me. I believe we all have a basic human need to feel valued and appreciated.
Further, I believe that need is so great that it is just above food, shelter and safety.
Who in your world could benefit from an expression of gratitude and acknowledgment?
How might you provide that acknowledgment? For me, the key is to first put pen to paper and to make a list of all the aspects that I can be grateful for.
From this, I typically find a theme. With or without this level of ‘think time’ and preparation, I am confident that your connection with this person will be strengthened.
More importantly, you will be helping this person get this basic human need met in a powerful and effective manner.
This is a powerful way to experience the full power of gratitude.
This week I’ll be writing about other aspects of gratitude that are important and useful for us all.
