Publicly declare your appreciation for someone

Do It

I walked by this rad Hotel Lucia sign today in downtown Portland and loved how simple and bold it was.

"Through these doors walk the most outstanding Employees anyone could ask for."

It got me thinking: how else can we publicly appreciate the awesomeness of people around us?

    I totally appreciate my lovely wife, family, work friends, cats, neighbours, fellow human beings, animals — that are awesome!

    I leave comments in the suggestion box at my grocery store on a regular basis, thanking the staff for their friendliness and for bagging my fruit so carefully. The manager once called to thank me, telling me that he read my comments to the staff and how good it made them feel to hear that their efforts were appreciated. I believe it makes a difference, reinforcing the good stuff - bagging is an art and they've never once crushed my organic berries.

    I'm blessed to have an incredible network of friends, family and colleagues around me. Today, I thank my co-workers Jen and Kari, they make today and everyday light. I thank my Stupid Cancer family, who make me whole and end isolation among young adults everywhere. And I thank someone new in my life, who I'm learning more from than I could put into words.

    I would like to express my appreciation for the good people of Fairhaven Massachusetts who worked together to develop our beautiful bike path. I feel very fortunate to live in a town where I can ride my bike in such a beautiful setting. Thank you!

    My husband Stan is the most incredible human being I know! His generosity, kindness, humor and patience still amaze me 14 years after our first meeting!
    My life changed so much for the better after the first time we met.

    Molly and Kate -- you probably don't know it, but you remind me about the meaning of life every single day. Thank you.

    I do this all the time. What a difference a Thank you makes. Today I would like to publicly thank Roberta Crisson, one of my professors at Kutztown University who changed my life; she taught me about looking deeply into self and into others to see our interconnectedness and that as a Woman we could be Strong & embrace our Inner Beauty. She taught me to take risks in performance & to share both the dark and the light; revealing our vulnerabilities could be healing for others and ourselves. I have thanked her publicly & privately then and Now. It was a delight to reconnect with Ms. Crisson in person in April, after so many years, hugging her and sharing once again in a huge crowd of people what a difference she made in my life by laying a solid foundation. Wonderful! She is such a humble person that she kept reflecting the words back to me, but I know she appreciated hearing of the impact & I loved sharing it in front of others. HUGS to YOU at Good.Is You inspire me every day! Kristin

    I've been doing this every day for three weeks with my kickstarter campaign and it has been by far the most satisfying and enjoyable part. Thanking people publicly feels great! (If you want to check out my comedy pilot kickstarter, this is it:
