Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.
How very true. With the busy world we all live in, we can become caught up in the business of doing, and not being mindful about those whose paths we cross on our daily journey.
I was raised in a home where we were told to say please and thank you to each other. I assumed this was the way everyone was. I have noticed that there are people that do not say thank you as a matter of course. Listen the next time you are in a restaurant, on the subway, buying groceries, stepping into an elevator, or doing any simple daily activity. How many times do you hear that simple phrase?
I wanted to take a moment to thank a couple of people. Not that I don’t have many people to thank for things in my life, but these two people just happened to be two creative people I chose to use for an outfit today and it got me to thinking about saying thanks. I am wearing a dress called Eleanor. Yes, it was named this because I am a friend of the designer. Her name is Catalina Staheli and her brand is Aleutia. I think this dress is wonderful. It also come with a HUD with tons of colors which I really love! She has just begun to create fashion for SL. She is doing her best to make her brand fun, unique, and versatile. She is a bundle of energy and I don’t know where she gets it all. She always pours herself into what she is doing. I am cheering her on as she builds her business. Thank you Cat for all you do.
The second person is someone I did not know at all until I spoke with him in his store one day. His name is Ors Quan and his brand is Minimal. Ors is a wonderful designer of jewelry and a truly super person. I love his items and have just about every one of them now. I use them frequently because I love them! He has an aesthetic that is right up my alley. He is so very generous and I hope he is designing things for us for many years to come. Thank you Ors for helping me find the perfect item for some of my styles.
I challenge you to say thank you to someone at least once each day. Remember thinking it is no substitute for saying it. Especially to those people closest to you. Most of us are not good at mindreading.
