The past weeks, I blogged a lot. I wrote even more. It was and is exhausting but a lot more pleasing.
I also headed towards several people to probe my thoughts on the up2U-protcol.
Some of the people are barely strangers. I chose these people to get out of my filter bubble build up from family, friends, colleagues and other people that already share my mindset.
Using the protocol, sets free a lot of energy at myself that was formerly bound to thinking and even worrying.
Now, I can use the spare energy to be more effective at other fields.
/what did I start?
I began to say “thank You!” – towards strangers.
Towards people, that pick up dog shit of their pets on street.
I thanked the garbage collectors in the morning – for just doing their job.
People react astonished on this.
They do not count on these simple acknowledgements of gratitude. Sad, but true.
Well, it’s my community-version of Kudo-cards.
But, people I thank are not co-working with me. They just serve the community – something, I really appreciate.
/what can result?
I was not aware of and it is not my first intention. I just thought, it is a good idea and I am open enough and free enough to spread acknowledgement. Especially to those, that are not used to it.
After I experienced that thankfulness in return, I remembered something.
Years ago I “was stumbled” upon the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know!?“ – I did not watch it in complete, until now.
But, I am deeply believing that there is something like that You get a basic idea about from description in the wikipedia-article.
The movie references (amongst others) an experiment, I “was stumbled” also several times in my life by corresponding to others.
It must not be transcendental meditation to lower stress level in Your community.
Sometimes, it is enough just to say “Thank You!” – once a while. 🙂
