Thank Someone Special

Gratitude is a powerful tool for happiness.

But it's not enough to just go around floating on clouds of gratitude.

A wise old man named William Arthur Ward once said: "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."

So single someone out.

Have you ever thanked your parents for everything they've done?

How about an old teacher, or a mentor at your first job?

Moms and dads: have you ever thanked your kids?

Call someone. Write a letter (not an email). Better yet, go in person, buy dinner, spend some time.

Deliver that present you've already wrapped.

You'll be happier.
