Today is a good day to tell someone something they already know.
Tell them why they are valuable.
Tell them that you love them.
Tell them why you love them, and what you love about them.
Tell them how they enrich your life.
Remind them of their goals, and that you are supporting them.

We need to encourage each other. We need to help each other refocus when things aren’t going our way.
It may seem to ourselves that we are stating the obvious, but it can be really helpful to someone who has lost sight of the bigger picture.
I never tire of hearing the same people say to me “I love you”, even if they say it on a daily basis. It’s a good thing for me to hear.

Don’t make your conversations bland. Make them intriguing, make them fun, make them impactful. But also make them uplifting & sincere.

Christmas is the most magical time of year. Yet too many of us let it be a highly stressful time. Does this sound like your Christmas experience? If it does, then stop.
Social media shouldn’t replace interacting with friends in real life. However, we can use it to enhance our real-life social interactions.
Try something more than mere courtesy. Taking a comment beyond what is expected demonstrates sincerity.
