Demonstrate Gratitude: 6 Genuine Ways To Show Thanks

demonstrate gratitude
Our cabin steward’s way of saying thanks!

A week ago, in honor of Women’s Day, I posted a picture of our creative director because I wanted to show how much I appreciate her commitment to Breaking Boundaries. Because of all the appreciation going around, I got to thinking how I can effectively demonstrate gratitude to those around me. I didn’t want to be one of those people who forget those who have helped them along the way.

Guest Post: Thoughts on Writing, Life Decisions, and “Just Do It.”

Failure to Launch

If you guys need to know one thing about me, it’s that I have a difficult time starting anything new. Well, starting anything new in writing, anyway. Throughout my high school and college career, I’ve managed to turn 1-2 hour essays into a whole day event that would end with a sub-par introduction. Barely an introduction, if I’m being honest.

Myrtle Beach, SC.

For the past few months, I have made some major changes in my life. The biggest (and toughest) change has been changing my life’s direction. I spent the past 5 years of my life not really wanting to do what I was doing. Wait, I’m exaggerating- the past 3 years. The first two were fine, but I stuck it out for three more years because I hated the thought of quitting. Even though I’ve always said I’m no quitter, I should have taken Steve Jobs’ advice to heart when he said this:

Courage: The Word I’ve Been Hearing Constantly For The Past Two Weeks

Courage
Found in a local shop in Myrtle Beach that featured local artists.

Courage.

I’ve been hearing some talks on courage for the past two weeks. People from the likes of Darren Hardy to marketing gurus have stressed about the importance of this one quality. Apparently, even Aristotle think it’s the most important trait to have.

Sunday Afternoon Musings on Breaking Boundaries’ Progress

“World Domination” (PC: korendezvous)

As I’m sitting in the living room at home, I got to reminiscing about where Breaking Boundaries  is now. Granted, it’s not where I plan it to be yet because I have big goals for this project. I do think we’re definitely making strides, though. Some of you might know that Breaking Boundaries is about a month and a half old. We’ve worked on a couple of collaborations and freelancing gigs so far.
