The final month of 2019 is about to commence. A while back, I posted about three mindful ways to end this year. Bathing in gratitude was one of them. Since I happen to love a good thirty day challenge, I decided to dedicate an entire month to practising gratitude. However, instead of solely giving thanks to the people I know and see on a daily basis, I’d also like to spread the gratitude to those I don’t know so well or don’t know at all.
a thank you for everyone
From the 1st till the 30st of December, I’ll be writing a daily thank you-card to express my gratitude to anyone I’d like to. A friend, family member, perhaps someone I met during a like, and – not to forget – those I don’t know personally but whom I’d wish to thank.
Why? Giving and receiving gratitude shouldn’t be something solely reserved for those closest to you – it’s for all those who touch your heart, it’s for every wanderer. And I believe, we’re all wanderers. Thus, no reason not to give thanks to everyone!

Practising daily gratitude, spreading kindness and, perhaps, creating some smiles are the main objectives here. No need to restrict yourself in any kind of way. These unknown someones can be people you encounter during the day and don’t know personally. It could be the postie, a waiter, someone walking their dog in the park… anyone really! Getting a little creative with it, will be the fun bit.
print your own cards and join
It would be the greatest thing if lots of people join and throw thank-yous around like confetti! So I decided to share these thank you-cards with everyone. Yeey! You can download your thank you-cards for free right here. All you have to do is press the download button below.
There are four cards on one page, which you can cut out once printed. (If you happen to stick the cards somewhere in a public space outside, please make sure you remove them after a while so they don’t end up as waste in nature.)
Spread the love! Make a picture of your message and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #thankyouwanderer. It would be pretty amazing if we could share some gratitude with the rest of the world!
Love and gratitude,
