Nancy Davis Kho’s new book, The Thank You Project, Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time is a fun read and a very effective booster to feel some gratitude – even if you never write another thank you letter! Her personal 50th birthday project of writing one thank you letter each week for a year is the backdrop for Nancy’s stories and advice as she reflected on the people who helped, inspired, and shaped her life.
Who could you thank?
She suggests this question: Would you be the person you are right now if you had never met this person? Nancy even thanks places, institutions, hobbies. In the episode, you will hear her read a letter she wrote to “All the bands I’ve loved before”.
I highly recommend you read the book or listen to it on Audible(Nancy narrates her book (!) and you can get it as your freebie with a trial membership). And if you are that person who has already begun your Christmas shopping (I’ve heard of people like you!), this is a great gift idea (under $20).
