Be one of the reasons that an employee smiles today, and any other day you happen to be around workers. Make sure they know they're truly appreciated, that they're more than just their job. And remember, whether you're a crafter, artist, author, teacher, clerk, waiter/waitress, banker, or something else, you are seen and appreciated. Thank you for all the work you do.
Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Rising Star of the Ideal Inspiration blog. From what I know, it isn't an official award; it's meant more to honor and inspire bloggers in their writing journey. But honestly, I think awards like this have more meaning, and I'm incredibly grateful to Rising Star for nominating me.
We may not be completely satisfied in life, but it's important to value what we do have. Doing so allows us to acknowledge and appreciate the positive things, which typically outweigh the negative ones greatly. In turn, this leads to a more healthy, positive mindset all the time.
