Attitude of gratitude

Let's play truth or dare.  Dare!  I dare you to make someone else's day today.  Write that person a note, leave something sweet for them, send them a random "you're awesome" text or just give them a hug for no reason.

Just embrace an attitude of gratitude.

Feels awesome, huh?  Post your random acts of gratitude below in the comments section - you might inspire others to follow in your footsteps.  Then, if you really want to shout out your random act of gratitude to the world, visit 365 Give to "share your give."

With gratitude, fabulous blog reader,  you rule.



  1. Just today I mailed a gratitude letter to an almost-80-year-old man who had positively and wisely influenced my direction in life when I was a clueless college student, nearly 35 years ago. I would love to see the smile on his face when he opens it :-)

  2. Dear Anonymous - What a great comment. I wish there was a webcam in that letter you sent. I would love to see the 80-year-old man's reaction. How thoughtful of you. Isn't it funny how one person can greatly influence your life and they don't even know it?

    I loved that even before this post, you had sent a letter.


  3. I really like this post. Everytime that I get frustrated with my (thankless waitressing/bartending) job I stop and think how thankful I am to have a job at all when there are so many families in such dire economic staits.

    The point is that we all have something to be thankful for, and focusing on that positive rather than dwelling on the negative just feels so much bettter!

    So, thank you to you for your positive posts (and engaging classes)! I am very grateful for your efforts!

  4. This is a great idea for teachers, too. The best learning happens when the student and teacher have a good relationship. What better way than to send a random note to your student to help build that relationship! Sometimes students may feel intimidated by their teacher - sending a random "you're awesome!" note will help to knock down any barriers, thus encouraging better learning!!
