Gratitude Week Day 2 : Jessica Kenney
Showing Gratitude to Others
This is how a few questions changed how I share my gratitude with others. My name's Jessica, I'm the Director of Content for Joy Creative Shop, and welcome to Day 2 of Gratitude Week! Let's take a moment to be grateful.
I wanted to share one of my favorite books with you. It's called "The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion" by Elle Luna. And it's really helped me with my priorities each day and what is most important to me. This is one of my favorite chapters. It's called "Ripples."
It says, "As you choose Must, your actions affect everyone and everything around you. How will you inspire others? Will you even know? Will it be because they see your work? Read your papers? Delight in your products? Or will it be because of the way you listen to them when they speak? How warmly you hug? How you live as you move through your days? Will it be something you say or some way that you say it? Or will it be the resounding piece that words cannot express? Although you might not be able to see the impact your life is having, it is there. Under the surface. On another plane that we can feel, but perhaps not see."
So our challenge to you today is: How can you share gratitude with others? Maybe it's a quick phone call to a friend. Maybe it's a thank you note on the desk of your co-worker. You never know how much a small expression of gratitude will impact someone else's day. See you tomorrow!
