The spirit of this national day is, ultimately, to be thoughtful of those around us. It is important for us, as a functioning society, to have empathy and consideration for one another. Whether this means holding the door of the elevator open for a stranger or helping a friend with a task that’s overwhelming them, we spread this spirit on this national day. If more of us were thoughtful, considerate, and empathetic, the world would be a much kinder and sweeter place. It is our responsibility to do what we can to bring such goodness back into the world for our future children and ourselves. And perhaps, by practicing thoughtfulness for this one day, we can begin making it a habit and change our lives, and the lives of many others.

History Of National Thoughtful Day
National Thoughtful Day was founded by Thoughtful Pinch to celebrate the joy and importance of being thoughtful. Creator of Thoughtful Pinch, Barb Paton, said, “By being thoughtful, one size does not have to fit all. In fact, the more unique the celebration, the better!”
While the origins of this day are yet unknown, lots of people spend so much time thinking about what it would be like to be a millionaire, it was only a matter of time before the activity were turned into a holiday.
