Unusual And Powerful Ways Of Showing Gratitude
Show your appreciation and gratitude by doing something out of the box!
Sometimes just two simple words, ‘Thank You’ is not enough. Actions speak louder than words and showing your gratitude rather than simply saying the words mean more than the world. Some people would always go above and beyond for you and just saying thank you don’t do justice to their kindness and generosity. In such situations, some simple gestures and actions could show your gratitude in a much better and greater way. Moreover, it is a way of showing how deeply they have touched your lives. Here are a few simple, unusual and powerful ways you can show your gratitude to people even without saying thank you.
Write A Poem Or A Letter
You do not need a ton of money and expensive gifts to say thank you to someone. Make them feel appreciated by writing them something. It could be anything –a poem, a letter, even a song. As long as it is coming straight from your heart, you will be good to go. Writing someone a poem or a letter to show appreciation shows the person that you have spent time on it and put in your heart and mind into it. It shows the effort and the genuineness of your gratitude. Moreover, writing a poem or a letter to show gratitude adds a personal touch and will make your reader very happy.
Take Your Time In Showing Your Gratitude
Give the gift of time. The most meaningful way of showing someone that you appreciate them, would be to give them time. Spend time with the person and let them realize how much you appreciate their presence in your life. That being said, spending time with them should not be limited to just one day. Make sure you check up on them quite often and ask their whereabouts. Take time to listen to them patiently and make them feel heard. Connect and reconnect with them to show your gratitude.
Be Specific With What You Are Grateful For
Let the person know why you are thankful to them and how they have helped you. Often we generalize in saying thank you and that does not show any sense of acknowledgement. To be grateful is to show someone that you acknowledge them and what they have done for you. So, be specific about what you are grateful for.
