“Thank You Gives Power and Energy – 30 Ways to Show You’re Thankful”

The words, “Thank you” give amazing energy to both the person saying it and the person being thanked. When another person thanks you, it fills your heart and soul with joy. What is even better is that the person who says “Thank you” receives energy, too.

Gratitude has the power to change your energy from negative to positive.  It changes your focus from sadness to joy. It changes your focus to things that give you energy.

Doing things without needing someone to say thank you is a blessing. Many times when you do something to help others, good things happen to you in return. They call it “Good Karma.”

Gratitude opens the door to receive more of the things, ideas, and people you appreciate.

Try it. You’ll like it. Does it seem true to you? Does it energize you when you say “Thank you.”

Does it energize you when someone says “Thank You” to you?

    Thanks goes both ways! Thank goodness for giving thanks!

    As a writer, one of the best gifts from a writing group member is a critique. There is no monetary payment, although there is an exchange of services. A thank you goes a long ways. Stating the writer’s strengths is encouraging. Pointing out what needs work is helpful. I am very thankful for my online critique group. It’s important for me to let them know.

    • Dear Linda Andersen,
      Thank you for writing. Yes, you are right. Thanks goes both ways. A critique is definitely a gift from a writing group member. Doing the critique also gives the person doing the critique lessons in how to improve their own writing. It definitely is wonderful to hear a thank you after we do critiques. It’s also good to thank the person for sharing his work with us.

      Ever onward with your great writing, Linda.
