Thank You Thursday
Today is 'Thank You Thursday', a day inspired by Jon Gordon, who lives in the US.
He's a keynote speaker and author who helps organisations develop positive, engaged leaders and winning teams. He has written many books around the subject of positivity over the last decade or so, including 'The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy' and 'The Seed: Finding Purpose and Happiness in Life and Work'.
On this day last year, on his Facebook page, he said
'It’s Thank You Thursday. Who are you THANKFUL for today? Take an intentional moment to acknowledge them. Give them a call, send an email or text, write a note, comment on this post and tag them, etc.
Simply take the time to thank those who have impacted you in big or small ways. Let them know they matter and that you care.'
Who would you like to say thank you to today? It's a simple way to connect with the people around us and be thankful for what we have. You don't need to make a huge gesture, a simple unexpected thank you is all that it takes, but if you'd like to take the opportunity to do something more, then you could give them a card or a little treat that you know they'll like. It's not meant to be commercial occasion so something simple is all that is needed - as long as it comes from the heart.
