Today we want to try an experiment.

The last two days, we talked a lot about gratitude. Today, we want to take action.

Thank someone for something you never thanked them for before.

Express gratitude for what they did, and share how that action had an impact on you.

You can even simply thank them for who they are and what they bring to the world.

If the thought of randomly contacting this person out of the blue with a message of gratitude makes you feel uncomfortable, it's a good sign that this is the perfect person to reach out to 😉 .

It can be hard to thank someone long after the fact, but it can also be a really powerful way of showing that even after all these years, their action had an impact.

It's always a good time to express gratitude.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
