Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I want to take a minute to say thank you to everyone out there that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting, working with, emailing or even just a brief encounter.
I always try to say thank you for everything that comes my way no matter what it is.
It brings about more good things but most importantly it makes ME feel good and I believe it makes the person giving, feel good too.
Over this holiday season I gave several gifts to individuals (that will remain anonymous) that never gave a thank you nor an acknowledgement of having ever received the gift.
I know for a fact that they did receive it but nary a word of anything. At first I was a little hurt.
Did they not like it?
Did they not like me?
Did I offend them?
And all those thoughts that made me feel lousy.
You know me, I don’t like to feel lousy, so after working my thoughts about it, I realized that I shouldn’t give the gift with any expectations of anything in return…and in truth that is how all gifts should be given.
In fact, the definition of gift is: something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation.
Isn’t looking for a thank you or any sort of response looking for compensation???
After some thought on the subject I came up with this: I gave the gift to let the recipient know that I was thinking of them, I care about them and I hope it brings them some joy.
How the gift is received isn’t really the point, although I still believe saying THANK YOU is a really great thing to do!
So THANK YOU for reading my newsletters, booking me for readings and coaching sessions.
THANK YOU for being my friends, acquaintences, clients and THANK YOU for being YOU.
Without YOU I wouldn’t have this newsletter and be the person that I am.
And a BIG THANK YOU to the 2 people who never did say thank you, as it gave me great things to think about!
Wishing you all a very Happy and Abundant New Year!
