You Made a Difference to Me
Last week was all about expressing gratitude to ourselves and our daily life. This week we are going to convey our gratitude to another.
Choose two people who have touched your life, who made a contribution to or sacrificed for you:
- The first is someone you’ve had personal relationship with such as a friend, family member, spouse, child, co-worker, mentor.
- The second will be a person you don’t know or know well but yet they still made an impact. This can be a teacher, a coach, an author, a blogger, a newspaper columnist, a local community member, or even a national figure that inspires you.
For each person, write them a letter (even if you don’t plan on sending it!) detailing specifically what they have done for you, the impact it’s made, noting the specific actions and words that continue to resonate with you.
Whether you choose to send the letters, or keep on hand as something to reread as inspiration, you’ve taken another step to living a grateful life.
