Words mean so much
What you say is valuable. In a society were talk is everywhere, lying is second nature to some, and silence seems a strange rarity; it is easy to discount what we say as having no impact. Still words are a simple thing which can encourage those around you.
Words which encourage
- notes of hello
- a wave of greeting
- spoken thank yous
- a card that says, “I thought of you today”
- a smile
- using someone’s name when you talk with them
Keep the Encourage Words Coming
Since it is rare, you may find your genuine greeting or lifting words meet with a quick brush off or passing mumbles. Be patient, be genuine, be consistent – soon those around you will realize they can rely on you for simple words of encouragement. Others will see your real life living in your words and be encouraged – whether the person who knows you best or the stranger walking their dog by your house.
