It’s a new year, and I am already late on my first post for the year. January was a blur. But February is here, and we are enjoying these beautiful days. It’s still cold, but the light is brighter.
Our Ribbon group is very special to me. I love your notes and emails. You are so encouraging. Together, we can bring light into our lives by sharing thoughts and experiences. So, let’s share this blog and see how many members we can get. We all need a boost for sure.
What makes us respond to an encouraging word? Have you ever thought about it? My mom passed away last year, and I miss her so much. She had the special gift of noticing and commenting on good in people. She always found something genuine to talk about that made you feel special. It just took a tiny sentence, and your day was changed.
As we begin this new year together, let’s take a baby step forward in encouraging people in our lives. It must be genuine, not contrived. Pointing out good brings a new belief in oneself. It also a very good habit to adopt. It will become a part of your life as you encounter people.
Our world today needs to see love and concern in people. We can lift the cloud with carefully chosen words. Today, go out and be a shining light of encouragement. You will change a life.
