Make Your Life Better by Saying Thank You in These 7 Situations by James Clear

In the self-help world, we do not need to search very far to find research that shows we can benefit from gratitude. Simply by saying a few extra thank yous, we become happier, healthier and hopeful-ier (not a word, but I was struggling to think of another example that began with h).

Thank You!

I sat with my notebook, pondering what I should be thankful today, when it hit me.

I’ve written about 14 different things that I am thankful for since I started writing this blog. I’ve covered everything from DVDs to free t-shirts, but I’ve left out the most important thing.

What could be more important than DVDs and free t-shirts, you ask?

You are!

That’s right, you. You, the readers are the most important part. Without you, this website would be like,, or any other non-existent website.

I didn’t start this blog to get fans. I started it because I like to write and thought there might be people who would be interested in what I have to say.

I was wrong, no one was interested.

Just kidding. If you are reading this, then I hope you are interested. And if you’re not and only found this blog because you thought it was about baking, I am sorry.

No matter how you found this site, I want to say thank you! You give me the motivation I need when I don’t feel like writing. You are what keeps this website going and I am sorry it has taken me so long to thank you.

You are the best!
