Affirming Others

by fivesimplethings on April 15th, 2010

Let’s keep this focus on the positive thread in order to effect change.

Every day, Five Simple Things encourages us to do two things that will strengthen our faith and family. Let me give you an idea for something that would be great for strengthening your family ties.

Write the names down all of your family members–your parents, spouse, children, siblings, etc. Underneath each name write down two things this person is really good at. Go ahead-write them down.

Every day, pick two of those folks and send them the results of your inventory. Send them a note that allows them to know what you think they do well. Make it tangible and make it specific. Give them a sense of what you value most in them. Then, watch to see how they’ll take that positive reinforcement and put it into action.

Send me any other twists on this idea that will allow those we love most to know what we value most in them (twitter hashtag #fivesimplethings).
