I love you, You are awesome, you are great, thank you, please, excuse me, I was wrong, may I have this dance….
There are so many words that are nice to hear. I love it when someone says, “You smell good.” BUT OUT OF ALL THE WORDS IN THIS WORLD, I truly believe, we don’t express ourselves enough when it comes to these…
I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!
I know some of the phrases I listed above kind of say or mean the same thing, but don’t beat around the bush…say it like you mean it, with intent and mean exactly what you say:
I AM PROUD OF YOU.
I heard these words earlier in the week from my 2nd grade teacher. She had me in class YEARS AGO (I’ve actually counted them…), but even though she hasn’t been in my daily life in many years, those words coming from her beautiful little self made my heart smile so! I’ve thought about those words all week. She made me feel more accomplished with that little sentence than any plaque or trophy ever could.
We NEED those words.
We need to say those words… not just think of them.
I have let those words go across the marquee of my mind so many times and not uttered them. Why? I’m not sure at all, but I make it my vow to voice them when I think them from now on. I want to bless others as Mrs. Lattimore did me. She may never know how awesome she made me feel, but I will pass that feeling forward.
I encourage you to do it too! Tell those that you are proud of…
Say it audibly, clearly and intently, OUT-LOUD,
“I AM PROUD OF YOU.”
