Saying thank you creates a connection between two people. It means that a good deed is acknowledged and remembered. It is a potentially powerful act, and so is the act of choosing not to say thank you. But saying thank you has a lot more positive impacts on the individual saying thank you. Last year, I came across the book THE THANK-YOU PROJECT: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time when I was starting to really feel burnout setting in. I needed something - and gratitude was the answer. That's why I decided to sit down with the author, Nancy Davis Kho to really understand the life-changing power that thank you and gratitude can play in our lives.
