Really? I'm pretty sure I covered that in Week 8. However, if I didn't expressly state it, I did pretty well and I felt good. It always feels good to tell people you are grateful for them or something they have done. If you have trouble expressing your gratitude or feel weird doing it, obviously you don't do it enough or you don't actually feel it in your heart. Yes, sometimes it's weird coming right out saying something, but in this day and age, there is email or texting. For example, last week, I told a friend of mine how much I loved her kids. There's really no great time to bring that up in conversation, but I really wanted her to know because I'd been thinking it for a long time. I sent her an email. It was that simple. I didn't do it because I felt obligated. I didn't do it to make her feel better. I did it because I was thinking about it and thinking how grateful I was that their whole family had come into our lives. Instead of putting it off or waiting until I saw her to tell her, I just took 5 seconds and sent a quick email.
Honestly, this week, I didn't understand. Maybe it's because I'm a person who expresses my gratitude regularly. Maybe it's because I'm a person who truly means it, as well.
