Have you ever felt extremely joyous to receive something you really like from someone? Whether it’s a special gift, help with something, or simply the right words? I have.
Have you ever hesitated or “taken your time” when it’s your turn to make someone feel that way? Yep, I have…
I don’t have much to say this Thanksgiving, because everywhere you look, someone is reminding you to Give Thanks. What I do want you to remember, is one simple little thing about us humans, “We DO decide how others treat us.” We have the ability to change how others treat us when we don’t approve of the way we are being treated.
Have you ever wished a more understanding significant other? Have you ever wished a more trusting boss? Have you ever wished a more respectful child? It’s all in the way we act and react. It’s in our tone when we speak as well as our body language.
This Thanksgiving don’t just talk about what you are thankful for, show it. What you want from your significant other, first grant it to him/her; a person who knows you and loves you will gift you the same in return. You want your boss to trust you, prove to your boss that you can be trusted to do, not just your job, but your best work; because when you do something, it reflects on who you are, and you are the best. You believe your child should be more helpful and respectful… Remember that we are responsible for shaping our children’s personalities. Our children look up to us for security, not just physical, but also mental and emotional. Every time you scream and demean your child, you’re backing him/her into a corner filled with failure. This is likely a cycle that will continue. Talk with your kids often; you’d be surprise what difference that makes in their lives as well as yours. Our children should be “good kids” because they love and respect us, not fear us.
Show you’re THANKFUL!
