The Power of Thank you
In a time where everyone is especially busy it can be far too easy to forget those two little words. I think now, more than ever, it’s important to remember to tell people how much you appreciate their actions.
As someone who was recently married I have a lot of experience with writing thank you notes. I’m pretty sure my hand is still cramping. I follow a pretty simple format when it comes to thank you notes. It looks a little something like this:
Easy, right? Sending a personal thank you note doesn’t have to be time consuming and the effect it can have on the recipient can be everlasting.
If you are still unsure of what to write I would suggest checking with Emily Post. Here are a few thank you notes from famous people that I really liked. I snagged these from this post on Mental Floss.
Oh, Conan! What a funny guy! Can’t you just imagine how the girl felt reading this response?
As a life long fan of Roald Dahl books, I can safely say this one is my favorite. If you do not understand the reference to the “dream in the bottle” then I urge you to go read the childrens book “The BFG”. This note will hold more meaning for you after.
Of course saying thank you does not have to come in the form of a thank you note. I try very hard to always say thank you for the small things as well as the big. If someone holds the door for me, does something nice, or has a kind word, I make sure to tell them thank you.
Challenge yourself to say thank you more often.
I would now like to thank Mandy for allowing me to contribute to her wonderful blog with this post. Her blog is funny, sincere, and all around heart warming. It is really a pleasure to be able to participate! Thank you, Mandy!
