Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings – William Arthur Ward

Early this week I wrote gratitude cards to my colleagues.

One day I was the last one to leave the office so I used this alone time to drop off each card to its owner’s desk.

Here is a picture so you can see how it looked like

The three you can see on the right side with the hearts shapes had a little gift inside.             Those three people are my best work pals so I wanted a little something more for them.

After 8 months together I thought it would be good to let my colleagues know I appreciate them and I am grateful to have met them !

In today’s society we consider kindness as a weakness but I don’t agree with this. Kind people are from far the strongest ones, they are able to see the good in everyone and to focus on the bright side only. Nobody is perfect but everyone deserves love and happiness.

They were so happy about it that I found little attentions on my desk few days later  (chocolates, a teddy bear, a rose) and nice emails in my inbox.

I am amazed to see how great it feels to open your heart to people and how they respond to it. Even though I didn’t do this to get something in return I was really happy to see that our consideration and esteem was mutual.

Don’t be scared to show how you feel and to let people know you care about them, you will be surprised by how they respond to it and by how such a simple gesture can strengthen your relationship !
