"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves." ~James Matthew Barrie
Questions to Ponder:
I was speaking to a colleague the other day and she was sharing how much she appreciated a mutual friend of ours. She was going on and on about how much his presence meant to her a few weekends ago and how much he helped her as she was experiencing some intense emotions. As I listened, I made a mental note to tell him about this lovely compliment. And then I thought how much more powerful it would be if it came from her. She promised she'd email him her thoughts and appreciation.
It got me thinking about this: When was the last time you wrote a love letter to a friend? I'm not talking about a romantic letter, I'm referring to the kind of note that you send to a friend telling him/her all of the wonderful qualities that you admire. Or you write to a new acquaintance with whom you shared a meaningful conversation, telling him how much you appreciated his thoughts on the matter. When we let people know how they have positively impacted our lives, we spread our light and love beyond ourselves. Who wouldn't want to receive a letter like that?
To whom could you write this letter of appreciation and love? Consider taking it a step further and picking out a card that is "perfect" for this person. A $5 card + the time you spend writing the note= a priceless gift for the receiver. Trust me, give it a try-- the feeling you will get from writing it is so valuable, too! It's a win-win. Let me know if you do it and how it made you feel!
