Can’t write a thank you

Our game launched on greenlight today, and for the first time in a week I left work before 1 a.m.

We had such nice reception from the people in our feed and such consistent compliments on social media that I spent most of the day showing appreciation and giving gratitude. 

So when the institute class I went to that night discussed gratitude and one of the activities was to send a text of gratitude to someone, I couldn’t. 

I couldn’t send a simple thank you text to someone. I was out of gratitude. That was a weird experience. It was weird to have spent so much time and focus in a day thanking people and not be able to choose one person and write them a note. 

I’m not sure what it means. It could mean I was too imbalanced that day and focused on gratitude only where it would benefit me. Perhaps my ability to be grateful had been so ingrained and paired to the game that I was unable to extricate one from the other. 

Weird, weird experience.
