Wonderful Monday, my People of Power!
First and foremost, rest in peace to the queen, Whitney Houston, who passed away this weekend! We lost a legend who will forever be missed! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to showing appreciation NOW!
The only guarantee that we have in life is that we are all going to die! Whether we want to accept it or not, this reality is one that we cannot escape. While it is important to live our best lives, it is equally important that we live in harmony with those we care for and love! The world has always been a cruel place, and because of social media, that cruelty has found a faster outlet to rear it's head.
It was sickening to see that after one's death people would really use that time to crack jokes, criticize, and judge, not having any regard for those who were truly hurt by the loss. In the same breath, it was equally disturbing to see how many people had great things to say but only did so after death! SAY IT NOW!!!
If you love someone, say it! If you miss them, show it! If you care, then
do something! Whether people show it or not, everyone is dealing with
some type of battle, and a word of encouragement can go a long way! Instead of staying quiet or criticizing, give people a fine reputation
to live up to. Instead of holding your admiration inside, let people
know how much they mean to you! It means more than you even realize!
Starting immediately, make sure you pay at least one compliment per day! Whether it's someone you know, or someone you don't! Make it a habit to make people feel good! SAY IT NOW!! It goes a long way!!
