Monday Motivation – Make Someone’s Life Better

It’s that time of the week again, it’s Monday, the beginning of the work week and time to get motivated!

This week my goal is to try to make the lives of the people around me a little better.

These past few weeks a lot of people in my life, family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances, have shown me a lot of love in celebration of my 30th birthday. This week I’d like to return the favor by letting them know that I appreciate them.

I’m not sure how I’m going to do that yet but I think just telling them that the attention meant a lot and I appreciate everything they have done is a good place to start.

I often forget how much my friends and family care about me but every year they remind me again. This year I had some new friends and I thought maybe since I didn’t know them very well they wouldn’t show up or care but they did, they really did.

Not only did they show up but some brought gifts and they all told me how happy they were to have me be apart of their lives. I don’t think I can ever express to them how much that means to me but I have to try.

Beyond telling them how much I appreciate them I also want to let them know if any of them ever need anything from me I’m here for them.

I can be an ear to vent to, a shoulder to cry on, or even dispense some advice of needed. I can make them laugh and let them know I see them and care about them.

Is humans are social creatures and every relationship is a two-way street. Do your best to make the lives of people around you better and I promise the favor will be returned two-fold.

You will have strengthened a friendship and doing good will make you feel good too.
