Welcome 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! I really appreciated your help in picking up my shopping bags after I slipped and dropped them. Your prompt action saved the items. You had your own bags to juggle but you stopped to make sure I was okay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Happy Thanksgiving! ” We all know or have met someone who lent a helping hand or ear when we needed it. Let’s express our gratitude for them. Get started!
Go For It: How many of these notes can you write?
