The Top Article of the Week
The Power of Casual Gratitude – Julie Beck: The Atlantic
Very appropriate for Canada day this weekend our “Best Article of the Week” is all about saying “thanks” and “I’m Sorry”. We Canadians are known for our gratitude and our propensity to apologise even when something isn’t our fault; “sorry, did you accidently walk into me on the street, my bad”
According to Julie Beck, of the Atlantic, gratitude is something we all should strive towards as research has shown that our very wellbeing is tied to our ability to give thanks. However, as explained in this week editorial, many of us substitute “sorry” when we actually mean “thank-you” and this can translate into feelings of irritation and disregard by the recipient of our kind words.
“Humans enjoy doing things for each other. And if it’s a slight inconvenience, well, it’s better to thank someone for the room they make for you than to apologize for taking up space in their lives”.
Along these lines on this long-weekend kick-off to summer let me end by celebrating my Canadian heritage: Thanks for reading!
