Until you learn to be grateful for the things you have . . .
you will not receive the things you want. John Kralik, 365 Thank Yous
John Kralik experienced an epiphany on New Year's Day, 2008.
He made a commitment to himself to write a thank you note each day of the year to someone in his life.
The commitment is described by the title of his book, 365 Thank Yous.
The experience is defined by the subtitle, The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life.
Kralik's idea inspires me.
His counsel to those attempting his exercise in gratitude:
- Handwritten notes – pen to paper – (no emails)
- Brief – no more than 5 sentences – 3 sentences are better
