Expressing kind thoughts and words
Recently I was reminded how important and impactful it is to give and receive positive, heartfelt words. A compliment, feedback, sentiment, appreciation or feelings of joy. More often we keep our hearts tight but our grievances loose. Below are some unexpected comments I received recently after teaching my yoga classes. I was touched and received unexpected joy! Students could have carried these thoughts out the door with them, but instead they took the time to express their kind words.
~“You have such a calm voice. I love your energy and the way you teach your classes.”
~“I love how you always give us something to think about, take outside of class and into the world”.
~ “I always feel calm yet energized after your class.”
They reminded me how important it is that we share kind words with one another. Speaking, or writing a note letting someone know they are appreciated, loved, or how they inspire you.
Where, or who in your life do feel you can express some appreciation or positive feedback. Side effects might include smiles, warm hearts and a happier day! Go for it!
