Project GratOtude has been a blessing in my life. Daily, I have enjoyed the quotes over email. Weekly, it is interesting to see the focus of the week and ways Janae has introduced us to interesting people and concepts.

Throughout the project and beyond, I feel deep gratitude for Janae in how she generously teaches and shares what she learns, consistently stays with an initiative, and professionally presents herself as well as her work.

I feel lucky to be learning within this community. THANKS EVERYONE!

I have been truely blessed by Project GratOtude. It has reminded me daily to be aware of all the things I am grateful for and with a focus on that, how can you not have a great day?

One of the concepts I have really enjoyed is expressing my gratitude to others with small gifts or notes of appreciation. Expressing my own gratitude towards others has brought me so much joy. One example of this is when we had to bring one of my boys to the emergency room a few weeks ago. He was very sick and we were all very worried. Although the nurse and doctor were very busy, they took extra time with us and explained to us each detail of the procedure and answered many questions while still being patient and making us feel like we were the only ones there. We appreciated the time they spent with us so much that we brought them notes of appreciation and candy! It really is the little things that can make such a difference.

Thank you so much Janae for all of your efforts in this project. It has helped me really focus on what is important in my life!

Project GratOtude has inspired me to intentionally express gratitude to all those who make a difference in my life – those who have helped me get to this point in life and those who help me day to day as each day unfolds. As I express gratitude to others, I find they willingly pass their gratitude to me and they tell me they find themselves becoming intentional about extending gratitude to others in their lives. Gratitude seems to be an infectious state of being! Wouldn’t it be great if we all “caught” gratitude?!?! Thanks to Janae for reminding us to consciously think about to whom and for what we are grateful and then to act on our gratitude simply by remembering to say thank you – such a simple concept that makes such a significant impact in life!

For me Project GratOtude is a reminder. It’s a gift, for you can’t help but reflect on the magnitude of your attitude and the footprint of your service when gratitude is at the core of your being. Quite simply gratitude makes you joyful because you focus not on the have nots or what ifs, but rather the possibilities and most importantly OTHERS. One recent experience brought this to light as I smiled and said hi while passing coworker, something I’d say I tend to do regularly without much thought. However for this person, who quite frankly rarely expresses any happiness in words or body language herself, seemed very aware of my greeting as she replied “you’re always so happy”. While I’m sure there are others who may beg to differ at times, in that moment my attitude projected awareness and with it a simple conversation followed creating an opportunity to serve her a plate of positive energy.

In all, it’s like a quote Janae shared in her Great Examples Blog on Movie Reflections for the Bee Movie… “What have we gotten into? I don’t know but it’s pretty big. We are representing all the bees over the world”. One really does represent by their actions and words and it can be really big? So what does and will your’s and my attitude, values, and daily example say to others? For me PGO reminds me to keep joy and gratitude at the core so my footprint makes the right BIG impact.
