Start Your Day with a Thank You Shower – Day 287 of 365 Days to a Better You

We’re a little behind to finish this series by the end of the year. I’m going to double up some days, but if we spill over into 2020 so be it.

The great Wayne Dyer used to have a practice of saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” as soon as he awoke each morning. He said it put him in a place of gratitude to start his day.

I’ve taken his idea and modified it into what I call the “Thank You” shower. The word shower is a double entendres in this case. I often actually do this in the shower, but it’s also about showering the world around you with gratitude to start the day.

You can make your own list for your Thank You shower. Here’s some ideas to get you started.

  1. Thank you for a new 24 hours.
  2. Thank you for another chance to get better.
  3. Thank you for my (significant other).
  4. Thank you for my family.
  5. Thank you for my friends.
  6. Thank you for the gift of my life.
  7. Thank you for my talents that I have to share with the world.
  8. Thank you for the food I need to survive.
  9. Thank you for a warm/cool place to call home.
  10. Thank you for this beautiful planet,
  11. Thank you for this amazing universe.

You can direct your thanks however you’d like – toward God, toward the universe, toward the object of your thanks. You can say them out loud or to yourself. As you start your day with all those people and things you have to be grateful for, let that gratitude infuse your consciousness and inform your day.

In case no one else has told you today, you ARE awesome! Thank my amazing readers for spending a few minutes of their valuable time reading this blog each day.

The Power of Thank You – The Affirmation Spot for Friday November 9, 2007

thank_you.jpgThere are two extremely powerful words that serve as a ready source of recognition in any situation and remind us how blessed we really are in life. Those two words are “Thank you”.

Do you say it enough? Do you take a moment to ensure that it is sincere when you do say it?

I have a friend who does this constantly. He often makes a phone call or sends an e-mail for no other purpose than to say, “Thank you.” It’s never hurried and he’s always very present in the moment when he says it or writes it. That complete sense of sincerity comes across every time. When you are on the receiving end of it, you feel pretty darn good.

There are many things that other people do for us all day long that offer us an opportunity to say, “Thank you.” Who knows, those two words might really make a person’s day.

If you are a manager, a simple, sincere thank you might be all the recognition you are able to give. The surprising thing is that a thank you is enough for many employees. When you go through the check out line at the grocery store today, try looking the cashier squarely in the eye, smile, and say, “Thank you.” I’d be willing to bet you will be in a distinct minority and he or she will appreciate it and smile back.

Remember to use those two words regularly with your significant other and I guarantee it will bring you closer. Use them as a differentiator in business. Many in the business world forget to say it these days.

The amazing thing about spreading these two little words all day long is that you receive a gift in return. By remembering to say, “Thank you,” you remind yourself how many things, large and small, you truly have to be thankful for.

Give it a try today. Set the goal of saying, “Thank you,” five, ten, or fifteen times depending on how many interactions you have with other people.

You’ll feel better and so will the other person.

Thank you to each of you for taking a moment out of your day to read this blog. The website continues to grow thanks to all of you! If you enjoy the blog and the affirmations, tell a friend about us!

Peace…
