The Power of Encouraging Words

enc.jpgThis week I've been given many encouraging words from friends and family on my design, writing, for the person I am, and what I mean to them.

Sincere words of encouragement from people you trust, are incredibly uplifting. Words of encouragement can keep me going strong for weeks or months.

Here's my challenge:
if you admire someone, either for who they are, what they do, or what they mean to you — tell them today! The surge of positive, heartfelt words will encourage them, maybe more than you know.

Life is so short — don't miss a chance to make a positive impact!

I believe in encouragement because it works for me too! I believe words can hurt or heal--youhave the power to choose which course of action you will take. "Learn the right words to say to encourage others in a positive way and change the world one person at a time." (KG) Please check out my blog and website for more on encouragement! I think we are on the same page here.
