Let them know they matter

Of course, we think the people in our lives are amazing. We love them for their kind hearts and generous spirits, for their wisdom and perspective, their gifts and talents — for simply being who they are. But sometimes the way we see others isn’t the way they see themselves. That’s why we love this audio story from Amy, who decided to randomly use social media to remind her friends of their awesomeness. We don’t need to wait for a special occasion or holiday to let our loved ones know they matter, that their gifts make a difference.

Acknowledge someone just because. Share a compliment. Express your pride. Affirm the good you see in them. You never know when that positive reminder could be just the thing that makes their day or turns a difficult one around.
