Splendid Sundays Special EditionSunday, October 04, 2009
No links for this week's edition of Splendid Sundays; instead some thoughts on leading a more splendid life . . .
Recently a young woman I mentored died of a drug overdose. Everyone who knew her is understandably devastated. Even though she was loved deeply, she didn't feel loved.
Make sure that the people who matter to you know they matter. Don't assume they know; tell them and tell them often. Pick up the phone, mail a card, be generous with your hugs - demonstrate actively that those people matter to you.
When you walk into a room, do you walk in with the attitude of "yes, here I am!" or rather "oh, there you are!"? I don't always get it right, but my goal is to always walk into a room with a perspective of "oh, there you are! YOU are just who I wanted to see because you are important to me."
People matter. Tell them so.
