One of my clients has been working through a difficult issue this week, and we’ve been messaging back and forth.
We got her to a much better place (hooray!), with action steps to take. Her last message to me simply said:
“I appreciate you.”
These words were like a big hug to me! Isn’t that the most wonderful thing to hear?!
I appreciate you.
Music to my ears. Not that I coach people to receive compliments or pick-me-ups.
But it’s awesome to have recognition, or receive love for who we are.
A simple suggestion for this week...
Tell the people in your life you appreciate them.
You don’t need to say why (but you can if you want).
It will make you and them feel good.
And if it’s said with genuine love, it will probably make their day!
If you don’t want to do that (and it won’t be right for everyone), jot down a few ideas on who you appreciate – and why.
It’s a great way to figure out what’s important to you, and what your values are.
It sounds cheesy, but it’s one way to get clear on what you value, and see who's important in your life.
Who is on your list? I'd love to hear!
Who could you send some appreciation to today, either verbally or in your heart?
Appreciating you, dear reader - wherever you are in the world :)
