By the end of this post you’ll be happier, hopefully .

So here’s the thing, I wanted to post about acceptance today but then a friend shared this video with me and it’s much more pressing.

You may have seen it already but I don’t care, watch it again! Then do what they say!

Here’s the skinny: People who express gratitude in person or over the phone are 19% happier overall! People who think about why they are grateful for the people in their life are 4% happier. Either way, this speaks to my personal mantra think happy, be happy. It’s not hard, just tell people why you appreciate them!

Here, I’ll help you get started:

Who has had the biggest positive impact in your life?
Were they an inspiration or did they willingly help you?
What was it?
How has it affected you?
Why do you appreciate them?

Now go! Go to them, call them, tell the people you love why they are important to you!

And, if you feel so inclined, I’d love for you to share something you love about someone below.
