Kind words cost us nothing, but they just could mean the world to someone else. With likable folks, it’s easy to find positive things to say. That becomes a bit more challenging with any miserable person in our midst. Typically, crabby folks do not even realize that they are observed as cranky and miserable with their skepticism, criticism, and constant ire. It can sometimes seem daunting to see something worthy of appreciation in them. But we can do it! There is always something sweet, even when deeply hidden.
Today, June 1, is the annual day focused on saying something nice to everyone. Let’s do it! Let’s put aside tough realities and find something genuine and nice to say to everyone we encounter.
This can end up feeling fun. More importantly, looking for and expressing “the positive” truly makes us happier and healthier people. Woo-hoo! Win-Win!
Thank you for reading my post. You just shared your precious time with lil’ ol’ me. And I appreciate that. I appreciate you.
