Be One Of Those People!
We've all heard the saying “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” Memorials are a deeply meaningful illustration of this.
When we lose someone, we tell stories, we reminisce, we laugh, we cry, and we try to figure out how to come together and properly deal with the new void in our lives. We say things we should have said to that person the last time we saw them or talked to them on the phone, and we talk about all the things we loved about them to the other people in their lives.
We leave so much love unspoken. What if we were to say everything we say at memorials at birthday parties instead??
Chances are you don’t remember that many birthday gifts you have received over the years. But you know what we do remember? Those special friends who not only remember our birthday, but take the time to send a few handwritten sentences on the inside of a card: Thanks for being _______. I appreciate your ________. I am glad you’re in my life. Not everyone is great at remembering birthdays, but I bet we can all make time over a couple days to remember why those friends are important to us and write them a quick note. Be one of those people who sends heartfelt, handwritten cards. You will find it truly gratifying, and highly likely greatly appreciated by the person who receives the card.
This Week's Focus:
This week, pick up some generic cards and start letting people know what you appreciate about them. It only takes three lines:
Thanks for being _______. I appreciate your ________. I am glad you’re in my life.
