It may be difficult to do, but I know you can do it. The acts of kindness don’t have to be big or expensive for you to carve out about 5 minutes of your day to THINK about someone else. We are so focused on ourselves, our needs, our wants, and what we don’t have. I guarantee you if you take this challenge, you will see a paradigm shift in your thinking.
I’m not talking about saying thank you on Facebook for 30 days, and saying you did your good deed. That’s so impersonal. I’m looking for things to come genuinely from the heart. Really think about the people that have come and gone in your life that had an impact on you. Maybe there are still people today that have made a difference in your life. Your challenge is to send one card or gift of gratitude. Write a heartfelt letter, buy someone coffee or bring a fruit tray or cookies to the office.
I really want you to go out of your way for your spouse or partner WITHOUT telling them what you are doing. Ask what you can do to help them, or anything you can pick up from the store, wash their clothes, or the dishes unexpectedly.
Join the Revolution! Send kindness out everyday.
This has been the greatest tool I have ever used. This offers a unique, personalized, inexpensive way to send Gratitude!
We do have special packages you can use for the 30 Day Challenge. Watch video below and email our team for more information.
Also you can wake up everyday and have a Gratitude Journal. Believe it or not we have so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful everyday to see, hear, touch, taste, to walk, talk, and think. To have a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes on my back, a family to love, friends to cherish, cars to drive, a job, and my health. That’s just to start with.
Think about all the blessings you have to be thankful for and start writing. You will feel amazing and start your day off right.
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, ‘ This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, “This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.” I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. “This is the Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.” How is it that there is no work going on here? ‘ I asked.
“So sad,” the angel sighed. “After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments”
“How does one acknowledge God’s blessings? ” I asked..
“Simple,” the angel answered. Just say, “Thank you, Lord. ”
“What blessings should they acknowledge?” I asked.
“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. ”
“And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.”
“If you woke up this morning with more health than illness .. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. ”
“If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation … You are ahead of 700 million people in the world.”
“If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world.” if your parents are still alive and still married… you are rare.”
“If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you’re unique to all those in doubt and despair…….”
Ok, what now? How can I start?
If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are
ATTN: Acknowledge Dept. “Thank you Lord, for giving me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people with whom to share it. ”
If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you have been blessed with, how can you not pay it forward.
