Too many times the words of appreciation I intended to share with those who inspire depart with me, never being uttered and unable to reach their intended destination. Rather they float in a liminal space, unspoken but thought with gratitude. They come from remarkable moments shared. Generosity beyond comprehension. Acts of safety performed out-of-sight but with care. Good wishes and cheers of success. Recognition of places to return with those who would embrace a shared perception of beauty. Weight taken from shoulders. Paradigm shifts. Recommendations. Notes of gratitude. Clarity. Smiles. Inclusion.
Thank you is not the end point for the interaction. Being present and aligned with a greater purpose is perhaps the highest act of gratitude. We cheer not for reaching the finish line but rather the fleeting moments where our paths overlap and we share our journey together.
Thank you to all those who share their adventures and invited us to tag along. We went further together than we might have on our own.
