About Being Thankful

As I sit here at my desk going through some papers I find myself thinking of all the people I’ve met through out my 48 years of life and those that continue to be part of me. In life we come across thousands of different people without realizing it. Stop for a minute to think about it, we connect with others for a split second, for 5 seconds, for less than a minute, for over a minute, for longer periods of time, we even bump into people in crowded areas, or accidentally push them away to get ahead of the crowd, we connect with people in traffic as well.  Regardless of what the situation may be we’ve had some type of contact with a lot of people in the course of a lifetime.  Let’s not forget those moments when we met someone for the first time that left us with the certainty of living that same moment in the past.  As I grow older I have more and more of those déjà vu experiences. Out of all of those instances there are individuals that become part of our personal and professional “spheres of influence”.

If I am stronger, better, more appreciative, happier, wiser and all the good things that come with growing older I have to say that I owe it to everyone.  I consider myself very fortunate. As a child a wonderful family that always treated me as their daughter embraced me and aside from having a home I spent many long hours with them. The same goes for their relatives. In school I had friends that I continued to be in touch with. Needless to say, my adult life brought me many good friendships and plenty of acquaintances. With some of them the silence between us was minimal but with others there were more than just a couple of years.  One thing for sure:  I always kept them close to my heart. This weekend I was touched by the posting of a Christmas card I had sent a very dear friend of mine about 30 years ago.  This consciously brought me to ask a question many of us need to be reminded of:

When was the last time you told someone you are thankful.  It is never to late to thanks those around us.

Here are 3 quotes I found

“Make it a habit to tell people thank you, to express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.” Ralph Marston

“I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom” Anonymous

“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks”
– William Shakespeare

One of the most rewarding ways to start the day is by being thankful, by smiling at life always approaching it in a positive way. I am always thankful for a new day, for having met so many wonderful souls and if there were any that have not been so wonderful I am thankful for the experience involved, which made me stronger. I am also thankful for my family, all that we have been accomplishing in life, my past, my present and the goals that drive me towards the future.

Thus, to close this post I leave you with this:

Always keep in mind to be thankful and most importantly let those people you are thankful for know about it.

And for you my friend: Gracias Monique!!!!!!!
