When is the right time to say "thank you"?
Do you say it immediately after someone makes a nice gesture for you?
What about thanking someone in advance?
Can a simple thank you be implied rather than express?
Are there alternative words to use instead of simply saying thank you?
What if you forgot to say thank you during that exact moment, but you said Thank You in the future. Does that still count as a thank you?
I ask these questions because I’m beyond thankful for the life I have today.
I can’t remember each time I told someone thank you, whether it was helping me become the woman I am today or commonly wishing me the best on my journey.
As I reflect on my life, especially in the last three years, I would like to thank you.
First and foremost, thank you to God.
Thank you to my parents, siblings, immediate and extended family, friends, professors, pastors, mentors, and people who I met while passing by.
There isn’t a number I can use to truly express how thankful I am.
I am whom I am today because of you. I have excelled with grace, loved beautifully, smiled unapologetically, and remained humble.
I don’t know the correct way to express my sincere gratitude.
So, THANK YOU!
