Remember, feeling grateful makes you happier – so think about what you’re thankful for, too.

5 Thank-You Notes
Dear Mean, Mega-Ambitious Person At My Last Job
Thank you for being so nasty to the people in my department. Thank you for making it unpleasant to go to work every day. Without you, I would never have left, started a business, got a psych degree, and found work I enjoy way more. I’m so grateful to you.
Thank you for giving me a fun way to boot up my brain every morning. Both cryptic and quick, thank you for using your word-nerdery to challenge and delight, day after day.
Dear Friend Who Took Great Offense At Something I Said
Thank you for telling me you were upset with me, and not withdrawing, or sulking, or drifting away. Often my mouth is in fourth while my brain is still idling. Thank you for giving me the chance to realize what I’d said, apologize, and stay friends with you.
Thank you for making me delicious coffee every day – even on those days when I’m Miss Cranky-Pants. Thank you for never judging me – even when I’m ridiculously over-caffeinated. Thank you for simply making my coffee, with your unconditional good grace and your excellent crema.

Dear Extra 10 Pounds
Thank you for finally shoving off, and giving me a great excuse to buy a heap of cute new clothes. If it weren’t for you I would never have found that fabulous blue dress, or those cool motorcycle jeans.
