How many times do we find ourselves with a friend who is going through a breakup, a loss, unemployment or another difficult life transition and find ourselves at a loss for what to do or say?
Or maybe your just like me and enjoy uplifting those around you. Since I can remember I have let my friends know what I value in them. Why do you ask? Well, there are millions of people in the world I could have chosen to be friends with, and I choose them. My friends deserve to know and are reminded of their positive attributes and what makes them who they are. I don’t choose to do this on their birthday only I do this randomly out of the blue when they least suspect it. You never know what your friends are going through each day; a simple but thoughtful text can go a long way.
People tend to be self-critical, yet research shows self-criticism leads to anxiety and depression. It makes people feel down when they encounter failures or make mistakes. Remind people of their strengths, their talents, and their positive attributes. It will help uplift them. Imagine if you woke up and you’ve had a down day, you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed, and your text message tone goes off. As you start to read your friend has just text you to tell you what you mean to them. You start to feel loved and appreciated. The whole mood of your day can change just by being uplifted.
By doing this, it will uplift you too! In researching, I found so much compelling data showing that the more we do for others, the happier, healthier and more successful we are too and we increase our longevity!
Time of earth is not guaranteed you never really know when you or someone you love will leave. Make sure your soul sisters or mates know what they mean to you before it's too late.
Here is where I challenge you. Today Is your day to uplift one friend. Text them and tell them their positive attributes and why out of millions of people you are friends with them. I hope it uplifts you too. Happy texting.
Let Your Inner Beauty Shine
