Encourage someone who needs it. Whether it’s a friend, sibling, parent, child or coworker, a little recognition could make a world of difference in their lives. Let them know that you are thankful for them and that you appreciate having them in your life. You can encourage someone with words, a hug, a gift or even an email or phone call. It is so simple to do; act now and go encourage someone!
It is pretty easy to encourage someone you like: a close friend, spouse, significant other, child, parent or sibling. Take that extra step and encourage someone you don’t know that well, or maybe even someone you dislike. Find that co-worker who sometimes drives you crazy or classmate who seems to know all the answers. Often times people act out because they are looking for attention and affirmation. When you encourage them, they are less likely to need to go looking for it. You might even find yourself befriending them!
