Today, I wrote a letter to one of my favourite authors and sent it to her.
I have no idea if she’ll even receive the message, nor reply, but that isn’t what’s important. I felt it was important that I tell someone who’s words had a positive effect on me that I am grateful for that.
Gratitude and kindness, in this increasingly negative world, is key.
I was nervous, thinking: “Who do I think I am sending a message to a big published author like that?”
But who am I NOT to? We are all the same, we just play different roles, and none are better than the other. We cannot compare ourselves to others – we all bring our own special magic into the world.
We should never be nervous to say thanks to someone.
Today, I chose to value myself as an equal to someone who has already accomplished much of what I hope to do someday, someone I look up to, a mentor and inspiration, and simply say a loud THANKS!
Today, show gratitude or kindness to someone – a stranger, a friend, a family member or even that actor you like in a movie that changed your life. No one is better than anyone – we all share this adventure.
And I am grateful for sharing it with all of you.
