I absolutely believe that expressing your gratitude for things and people in your life makes life better. It's a Lisa-Guarantee.
This can be as simple as a post-it note on a fridge or as complicated as a gratitude journal. I personally like to keep it simple and varied. I have been known to send handmade notes to friends who are special to me. I write gratitude lists in my journal. I instagram my gratitude.
This is my go-to activity when I am feeling crummy, sad, down-in-the-dumps, etc. It makes me feel better, and I hope it sets a good example to others.
Last month I was approached by Tiny Prints to see about doing some sort of blog collaboration. The ball was in my court to think of something, and they would help me out as best they could. And so I started wandering through all the gorgeous options on their site! Address labels, and photo cards, and calendars, and invitations, and more. It was a teensy bit overwhelming. So I went back to something that is a no brainer for me...gratitude. And that led me to their thank you cards. And I knew I had it.
And this one is sparkly...so...yeah.
I started with the easy ones, the people who I could write a million thank you notes to and never scratch the surface. These are the people that deserve fancy cards in the mail everyday, and so much more.
Speaking of fancy cards, don't forget to make your mark on the envelope.
Washi tape fixes everything.
And I have loads of cards left, for when I am next feeling like I need to express a little gratitude and spread the love. I even used one as decor in my "office". They are just that special.
I am thankful that I was given a sweet opportunity by Tiny Prints.
I am thankful that I have people in my life who believe in me.
I am thankful that I still have some permanent stamps in my collection. Damn Canada Post...
What are you thankful for?
How do you express your gratitude?
Disclaimer: So, I got my thank you cards for free, but only after I had already decided to buy them! Ha! So while I was technically compensated for the product, the content and the sentiments are all mine! Now, go buy some Tiny Prints! Wink...
