The Art of Saying: Thank You.
In 2019, time moves so quickly. We buzz from one notification to the next, trying endlessly to balance life, astrological feels, and responsibilities. The truth is that the thought of sitting down to write a thank you note doesn't even make it onto our To-Do lists.
At Amador Collective, we are all about relishing in the experience of saying, “Thank You”. These two powerful,simple words help us to savor our experiences and live life to the fullest. Here’s a fresh perspectives, to motivate you to show appreciation through a tangible, physical Thank You cards.:
Amador Collective’s cards are full of connective energy. This is best seen in what I like to call the ‘Ripple Effect.” Picture this: you go over to a friend’s house for dinner and bring a bottle of wine (or in my case, a bottle of tequila). You present it at the door and in return, given a big thank you hug! You have a wonderful night, filled with epic memories and text your host, thanking them for having you over. The next morning, you write about the experience in your journal or gratitude list. The vibe is marked, but it ends there. But imagine if this feeling could be extended.
When you write a thank you note, you extend the emotions, experience, and feeling for days, sending it out in a tangible form, as an unexpected surprise. A piece of happy mail.This is where the ripple effect occurs.Before you know it, it’s days later and the experience has lived on. Let’s face it,because it’s 2019, they will likely follow up with a text to say, “Thanks for the card.”
Gratitude is a form of self-care and an integral part of an optimistic outlook. I see the difference in my mood when I practice gratitude. I encourage you to seek out this reward.
My husband and I say one thing we’re grateful for when we sit down together to eat. It sets the tone for a PMA (positive mental attitude). These types of practices are beneficial for all relationships.They keep the perception of the day in our court. We have the mental power to focus on the positive. Practice it. Use it.
I view writing a thank you card as a ritual, a part of my self-care routine. I’m thinking tea, a record, maybe a face mask. When we take a break from the busyness to focus on what’s important and reflect on the gifts of life, you can feel the love that surrounds you. Connecting with a paper, decorating your envelope for that special person, and expressing your gratitude, brings us into the moment as well as captures our bliss on paper. The card becomes one with “the good vibe.” You encapsulate the frequency of your gratitude and encourage ‘The Ripple Effect.’
