Encouragement For A Week
Be always lavish of your caresses, and sparing in your corrections. William Cavendish
I received a text this weekend which was so kind, so heartfelt, and so flat-out encouraging, that I'm still awash in gratitude for the person who reached out to me. Can you recall when someone encouraged you in such a way? Maybe it was a note or a phone call. Perhaps it was a conversation over lunch or a surprise gift in your mailbox.
We've all been on the receiving end, but when's the last time you decided to make someone's day by strategically speaking a kind word into their lives?
I am inspired by my friend's words.
I want to spin people around this week the way that text message spun ME around.
After all, shooting someone a text message with a quick "well done" or "I appreciate you" or "you inspire me" won't require much time. An email, or snail mail, or a catch up call - anything works. All that's demanded is A Plan and a little follow through!
Of course, I love A Plan and I work best off of lists (if you know about my eating adventures, you know this to be true!), so here are my targets:
Monday- A Family Member
Tuesday - A Friend
Wednesday - A Coworker
Thursday - A Neighbor
Friday - A Familiar Stranger
Saturday - A Stranger
Sunday - Wild card!
Who's with me??
I bet it will make your week too!
