Day 20 of the 365-Day Creativity Challenge: A Thank You Note

Thank you Note / Day 20/ 365 Days Of Creativity / CollectiviteaWelcome to Week 3, Day 20, of the 365-Day Creativity Challenge! Here in the US, we are excited about Thanksgiving, and over the last few days, I have shared creative exercises centered around the idea of giving thanks. We started out by giving thanks and being grateful for the world we live in, and for ourselves. We then made a vision board to set intentions, and focus on goals.  For Day 20, write a note (handwritten) to someone expressing your gratitude for their presence in your life or for something they did. The only challenge is to write it to someone who is neither a family member nor a friend. As with most of the creative exercises, write it quickly; be specific about what you are thanking them for. For example, you may write a thank you note to the lady who helped you pick up all your bags and parcels after you dropped them. “Dear Lady On The 17th Floor, Thank you for helping me stay upright when we got off the elevator. Boy, was everyone in a hurry that day!

A 365-Day Creativity Challenge

365 Days Of Creativity / Collectivitea

Hello November and welcome back to Collectivitea! I took a few days off after the 21-day gratitude challenge to mull over what I wanted to do next. Keeping a gratitude journal and completing the challenge was both enjoyable and motivational. It was almost as if taking the time to write about what I was thankful for doubled my happiness. It also brought home that I love to write and take pictures. Taking time to do either makes my day more joyful and on the days when I just move from one to-do after another, I feel cut off from this source of joy. I believe that this joy is really where the secret to a happy life lies, and I want to explore and learn more about it every day.

We all have things to do on our daily lists that are non-negotiable like going to work or taking the kids to school. I am adding and committing to a new non-negotiable item on the list- to engage with my creative side for 365 days in a row and to share it here. 365 days of creativity! That sounds like permission to have fun! Yay! Read more.
