Go R.A.P somebody

The other day I wrote, by hand, thank you notes for Christmas presents received and it was a big hit! I received so much feedback, you’d think I’d baked a batch of cookies–with that cookie smell wafting throughout the house.

Here are some of the thoughts on being grateful/thankful that prompted me handwrite real live thank you note:

“If there is a high road to demonstration, it is through praise and thanksgiving.” Emmet Fox

Counting your blessings is a good spiritual practice, like a business taking yearly inventory, we should acknowledge our good. also Emmet Fox, paraphrased

“I conducted a survey to find out what things people wanted most in life…people want Recognition, Appreciation and Praise!” Dr. Zonnya

Try this as an experiment: Express some form of a Recognition, Appreciation or Praise, at the next argumentative person that comes your way, observe what happens.
