The Power of ONE

One idea, one person, one word.  The power of ONE is all it takes to make a tremendous difference in the world.  Just like a pebble creates many ripples in water, so too can ONE person – YOU – create a ripple-effect of love and appreciation when becoming more grateful.

Listen here for the inspirational audio message from Janae about the power of how ONE person can make a difference.

ONE idea

ONE word

You never know how your words or someone else’s words will inspire someone to make a difference.  Here are some uplifting words that will inspire you to keep making a difference.

I’m inviting my best friend Debra to join project gratitude. We do everything together – and I’m so grateful for her unconditional love and friendship.

Thanks, Jocelyn, for inviting your best friend, Debra, to join! It sounds like you’ve got a great friendship. If you want to check out what my two best friends (Julie & Sara) and I are up to, go to I bet you would both love this as well. I look forward to meeting you too Debra. If you haven’t yet, you will want to check out the contest we have going to be the first one to sign up on the contest page from your state.

I'm inviting my friend Donna. She and I have been friends for years. We have worked together in the same office, from remote locations across the country and we are such good friends! We see each other through in rough times and enjoy the good times, even though we are in different states. Donna has been my gratitude partner in the past and we both need get back to it, so I'm hoping she will join! She has helped me through some challenging times, love her dearly!

Hi Sue,

Thanks for inviting your friend, Donna, to join our community! How neat is it that you are good friends AND gratitude partners. We all need friends like Donna in our lives who help us through those difficult times and remind us of all we have to grateful for. We would love to learn more about what you've done together as gratitude partners. Please share!!
