recognition. just how aware of your own happiness are you? how aware of your expressions of gratitude are you? is all of your recognition of thanks and praise kept in a selfish place? tucked deep down inside so that you don't have to share it with the world? who benefits from that?
hiding your gratitude does nothing. no one will ever know that you appreciate the things that you have, the things that are done for you, or just life in general. i have a problem of really wearing my emotions on my sleeve, but this emotion, i urge you to put this one out there. why not share it with everyone you meet.
there is a novel idea...sharing gratitude. pass it on. maybe someone needs the acknowledgement more then you know. the lovely ladies over at 365grateful, whom i find everyday inspiration from, have come up with an amazing challenge this month. HUGS! why not? they are challenging us to 8 a day. read here to find out the reasons why. it's science folks.
meanwhile, shout it out from the roof tops! if you have something to be happy or thankful about, tell someone. hug someone. tell someone while you are hugging them. and be warned, if you are within arms reach of me, brace your self for a hug.
