A friend messaged me the other day about my new business, A Healing Spirit. He told me how much he loved the products and then said “Congratulations on being you!”
I loved it. Of course.
How many of us actually take the time to acknowledge another for being themselves? How many of us take the time to see others clearly and then affirm them?
Don’t you love it when someone appreciates you for being you? It’s such a lovely compliment.
The camera image above may be retro but what is all too current is the self-focus represented by the profusion of selfies we see all over the place. Some of us are so focused on ourselves we don’t stop to take in another.
We do too little acknowledgement and affirmation of the other beautiful souls around us. But when we do? It lights up that person’s life and also the world.
So look around you right this very minute. At your life in real time and also online. What opportunities to affirm others exist? Can you do a random act of kindness?
Take a moment now and call, text or message someone a message of affirmation, one that tells them how much you appreciate who they are.
Another tiny, easy thing with a big impact. Let’s all do more of it!
