The Lost Art Of "Thank You"

We all know it to be true. People love to whine and complain. We thrive on negativity. Heck, I myself tend to gravitate towards cynicism and sardonic comments. It's an unavoidable part of human nature.

I want to propose a "Thank You" revolution. Holy crap, yes, I know how xCHEESYx that sounds, but I'm serious. Do you know the difference you can make in someone's life just by letting them know that you value and appreciate them? It's huge. Really.

So whether it's the person at the coffee shop/restaurant/retail store, a co-worker, friend, or family member, show them your appreciation with a kind word and a smile and this 'ole world may just become a bit more bearable for all of us.
