Are there people in your life who you appreciate for all the little things they do on a daily basis?
Do you let them know how much you appreciate them?
Many times we think about how much we appreciate people, but we don't take the time to show them. It doesn't take any grand gesture.
It's actually pretty simple: write that person a note. On average, it takes less than 5 minutes to write.
The written word is fast becoming a lost art, but it's the quickest way to bring a smile to someone's face. You might not see that smile, but if it makes you smile just writing the it, then you know it's going to make that person smile.
Thinking about writing notes to others makes us more observant of the world around us. We start looking for interactions, kind words, or actions. People aren't doing them to get noticed, but when someone else does notice, it's a warm fuzzy on the inside and many times it motivates that person to continue doing what he or she does.
Sometimes we might not feel like we're making a difference, but when we take the time to write a note we're letting people know that they make a difference in all that they do.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
