“In the external scheme of things, shining moments are as brief as the twinkling of an eye, yet such twinklings are what eternity is made of — moments when we human beings can say “I love you,” “I’m proud of you,” “I forgive you,” “I’m grateful for you.” That’s what eternity is made of: invisible imperishable good stuff.” Fred Rogers
These are the exquisite moments that exist every day. Hundreds of moments, maybe thousands of moments often overlooked because we’re too busy, hurried, harried or occupied. These are our “teaching” moments with our children. A “loving or sharing” moment with our spouse.
Sharing a Recognition of Greatness with a family member or even a stranger can often make the difference in their day for good or bad. Often these statements only take a mere five to ten seconds of your time and if you really want to get wordy, 30 seconds of your time by adding on values and traits you want to see that person exhibiting or admire in that person. For an example of this, see this blog. Wouldn’t you have loved to be on the receiving end of Howard’s recognition?
Next time you’re out and about, take a few seconds to say thanks for a job well done in a very specific way. Not just “thank you” or “good job.”
Don’t miss an opportunity for a “twinkling” today – share one with your loved ones
