Acknowledging positive influences

Your mission, if you choose to accept it today, is to think of someone who has influenced you in a positive way and then take the time to tell them.

Whether they set a good example, or inspired you, motivated you, offered you support when you needed it, encouraged you, made you laugh, or were simply kind to you, if you respect and admire that person, let them know — and be specific.

“I really admire you.” is nice.

“I really admire you because…” is even nicer.

And if you can’t think of someone — or can’t get in touch with that someone — then BE that someone for someone today.

Be the person that others admire.

Lend a hand. Offer a word of encouragement. Be kind. Set the example you’d like to see.

But don’t do it because you expect anything in return. Just do it because it feels good.

That’s your mission today.

And if you like it, every day.

:)
