This year during the holiday season, I began writing a special note each week or so. I thought, what better time to let people know that they matter; that we are grateful for what they contribute to our lives; they are appreciated. We all can use a bit of encouragement and praise from time to time, no matter how together or confident we may seem.
A few spare minutes here and there is all it took to jot down a brief note to a friend who was formerly a workplace-proximity-associate; a relative who I don’t get to see often; a buddy whom I see regularly but don’t often share these sentiments.
Deliver it in person, send it in the mail, email it, arrange for a singing telegram… Whichever method you choose, remember the important thing is to get your message across.
P.S. As you’re ringing in the New Year, check out this post that I cannot get enough of. It’s of great encouragement! Absorb it, put your favorite parts into practice, and share it with everyone! –> a life guide by Adam J. Kurtz
