Confidence Booster Series: Be A Source Of Sunshine
“You are the rainbow of hope in someone else’s grey sky” – Emily Madill
This week’s focus is to reach out and do something unexpected and kind for the special people in our lives who may be in need of a boost. If you have ever experienced trying times, you can probably relate to the notion that having supportive people on your side makes the storm much easier to pass through.
The people near and dear to us are the ones we can count on to show up. They are the ones who genuinely have our best interest at heart. These people ‘want’ to see us succeed. They celebrate in our victories and their hearts ache during our times of sorrow.
Sometimes life can become busy, or perhaps things can be going so well that we can inadvertently overlook these bright beacons of light in our life. It is so important to take the initiative to check in with our important people and pay them a gift of confidence or a random act of kindness. It could be as simple as expressing genuine interest in what is going on in ‘their’ lives. Showing up for others is an integral part of nurturing these important connections we have. You never know when showing up could be the highlight or turning point in your special someone’s day.
Being thoughtful and considerate of other’s needs is an enormous boost to both parties. One of the best experiences in life is being gifted the opportunity to witness the ‘very heart’ of who someone is, as well as feeling what it is like to be ‘truly seen’ by another.
We all have the ability to give this love freely and openly to our cherished people. It feels so good to be that strong shoulder, especially when we know it will create a glimpse of hope and joy in another’s life.
So this week as you busy yourself with the many facets of life, set aside some time that is dedicated purely to giving back to those special people in your life. Be that source of sunshine for someone else. Lift their spirits and be the reason that they have a smile and a hopeful heart. Have a lovely week.
