Thank you

Thank you

You hear it. You say it. Now mean it.

Thank you is one of the most over used under used in the world we live in. I would venture to say that we say it at least 10 times a day in some form. Right on dude. Thanks. That was helpful. That was nice. That was cool. I’m sure you can think of a few more. All have our own special way of expressing our gratitude. But……how often do you really mean, Thank You with sincerity.

Often times and I do mean often I go and get fuel for my car. As I am entering the store someone usually holds the door open for me. “Thank you very much.” are the words that ring out as I pass by. The difference is the very much part. The difference is I look them straight in the eyes and mean what I say. They smile and add a “You are very welcome.”

The simplest things in life bring the most joy. I was appreciative and they felt gratitude towards that appreciation. People, humans by there very nature need to feel like they are needed. I need lots of people in my life. People who don’t know me and I don’t know them. I’m not suggesting that I want to be their friend. I don’t. I don’t want to hear about their personal life, their problems, their issues, there whatever. I don’t care. They don’t care about my world either. I don’t expect them to. This doesn’t change the fact that we need each other to coexist.

I need people because without their presence my life would be boring. I need your ideas that I get off pintrest. Love that place and thank you so much for all the great photos. I need to hear your voice so I can form opinions. Thank you for taking the time to write your blog. I need people to wear ugly clothing so I know what in life I like and dislike. Thanks for dressing badly. Thanks for acting stupid. Thanks for saying dumb things. Thanks for being arrogant. Thanks for being kind. Thanks for everything this world does to make me who I am. And thank you whoever for the beautiful day, the green trees, the sky above, the sun shining.

I’m not always this happy, sometimes life sucks, but I can still manage to get a thank you out here and there. It’s important. If my day sucks maybe I can make yours better.

Say thank you to everyone you pass and then mean it.
