Every so often we run a thank-you note post based on Thx Thx Thx. It’s a website which was started by Leah Dieterich, a creative director and writer in LA. It’s based on the premise of writing thank you notes, and not just to people who had you over for dinner or gave you a birthday present. This is the delightfully quirky catch.
Her ‘About’ page describes it like this:
Leah Dieterich’s mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does. To everything. thxthxthx is her daily exercise in gratitude.
There’s always something to be thankful for. From the important things like Songs You’re Embarrassed to Like, and Heavy Eyelids that Tell You When You Need to Sleep, to friends and family, love and loneliness, light and darkness, Leah Dieterich sets out to acknowledge them all. thxthxthx is her daily exercise in gratitude.
Here are a few examples from her site which she updates daily with a new note:
Dear Big Fight With Someone I’m Very Close To,
Thank you for helping me to clear the air with this person and prompting a really constructive conversation about some of the underlying issues that have been niggling between us for a while now. Even though you were extremely unpleasant at the time, we are much closer now because of you.
