    Thank you, Courtney, for taking the time to share your thoughts. You assist me in stopping to think about things in new ways. Project 333 has forced me to look at my wardrobe with a critical eye, and has simplified my life. Thank you!

  3. Thank you for inspiring me so much!

      David, I’m so glad we are getting to know each other. It has been so cool to watch you reinvent your blogging approach. You are really making a difference in the world.

  5. I just am so thankful to have found your writings! I find it so inspiring to find a community like this and what you have to say is so similar to all my thoughts and ideas.

    Love it! Love it! Love it!

    peace & love

    I SO appreciate this post! I am thankful for my mother, who instilled in me at a young age the art of writing a thank-you note. Now, I thank you (and Mr. Becker) for passing along the reminder that being thankful is helpful–not only to the one who recieves the thanks but also to the one who gives thanks.

    Many blessings in 2011!

  7. I love that you’ve posted this. Gratitude is one of the most beautiful positions of the heart. And my favorite thing about it is that it often takes the attention from self and puts it on another. As I understand it, I am incapable of gratitude apart from God and my utter reliance on God requires God’s ongoing position of graciousness. From this hopefully gratitude may spring forth.

    Along time ago someone told me, “The attiude of gratitude brings altitude.” Thanks for reminding me how to soar.

  9. What a nice post to end the year with! I’ve only recently discovered your site and missed the beginning of your project but have done this sort of thing in-house (meaning, in our house) in previous years. Good luck. I like your style!

  10. I’m so thankful to have found your blog (and BTW, there was an article printed in the Fresno Bee the other day, originating from Miami I think, and I got so excited I nearly shouted to my husband, “It’s about Courtney! I KNOW her!!” Anyway, having made the decision to simplify my life, I am grateful for your many words of wisdom.

    Thank you.
    Happy New Year.

  11. Courtney,

    Thank you for writing this blog, you were the first person who really caught my attention with their writing, and have inspired me to change my life through minimalism. And I love this post, I make sure that I let the people I love know they are appreciated. My boyfriend and my mom especially =)

  15. Thank you for your blog. Thank you for your ideas.

  16. Chandra

    I could say thank you for the inspiration, the wisdom, the new perceptions, the gathering of minds… but I’m sure I’ll forget to include everything I really meant to say… So, thank you.

  17. Thank you Courtney for being a role model for me as I am building my blog! I also thank you for your 333 challenge. I am not ready to participate in the fullest, but you have truly given me much to think about. I have reduced my wardrobe one and I am ready to do so again!

    Thank you! ;-)

  19. It’s so sad that people either don’t say ‘thank you’ enough, or they don’t know how to truly mean it.

    So I’ll lead by example and say ‘thank you’ to you, Courtney, for having an awesome website, a brilliant set of ideals, and for just being a generally inspirational person :-)

  20. Gratitude is a great way to end one year and begin another. I like your list of ways to say thank you – there really are so many wonderful ways of experiencing gratitude and expressing it.


    Thank you for giving me the focus of gratitiude today

  21. Courtney,
    I love how you say: “Being thankful for something is like enjoying that something all over again.” Kind of the way reminiscing feels! Great post!
