Do you have ten seconds in your day to connect with what matters most?

As technology continues to evolve at the speed of light, we can get caught up in the need to keep up with our ever-changing fast paced world and find ourselves constantly running. Excuses in the form of “I’m too busy” come pouring out, almost as a shield to explain why we choose to miss the moments that really matter and add substance to our lives. And that is our connection with people.

Gratitude requires very little time, money or skill, yet offers enormous rewards. Grateful people are happy people because they view life as a gift instead of a burden. Some people express gratitude by telling people they are grateful, some people pray and thank God, others think thoughts of gratitude.

Ten seconds can make a positive difference in the life of someone you care about.

I challenge you right now to pick up your phone. Choose one person. One person you care about. One person you would like to reconnect with. One person that you want to show your gratitude to for being in your life. Do you have the one person? Text three words and only these three words and push send . . .

I Appreciate You

That’s it. Ten seconds to show appreciation and start a ripple of positive emotions that can create a title wave of gratitude and connection.

Each of us – in every moment – is making a contribution to the world through our thoughts, our words and our actions.

Never underestimate just how much power you have with your words.

“I APPRECIATE YOU.”  XO, Bonnie
