Over 1000 people came together to paint nearly 3000 stones in the hope of inspiring gratitude. This was one of the most beautiful projects to be involved in. So many happy smiling faces, painting stones and getting a thrill out of leaving them for people to find.
And guess what? You can still jump on board this fun project and make a difference in your community. We're asking people to find a stone that they connect with and then paint that stone with the words "thank you", or "thanks". And then we ask that you place your stone somewhere public so that it will brighten the day of whoever sees it! We've been joined by groups in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, America and Sydney who are all doing the same thing in their town. You can do it too!
Gratitude is one of the most powerful ways to bring about positive change in our lives. To find out more about how to practice, check out our podcasts and blog posts!
We can't wait to see all the thank you stones, so please take a picture of your stone and send it to us or tag us online through Facebook or Instagram, @heytherehappiness. You can also use #thankyouyourock.
And you can find all of our photos on our Facebook page right here.
