There are two quotes we often refer to at kikki.K. The first is ‘Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.’ And the second? ‘Gratitude shared is happiness doubled.’ The reason we come back to these regularly is that they truly capture the importance of expressing your love and thanks. Something truly wonderful happens when we share our feelings of gratitude and show others how thankful we are. Happiness spreads. Joy spreads and it’s a beautiful thing.
At the end of the day, there’s so much to be thankful for, and expressing that thankfulness leads to positivity and kindness, and it really is one of the simplest things we can all do. If you need a little help, here are our top five ways to share your gratitude the kikki.K way.
