A friend of mine hasrepparttar wonderful habit of telling you when that dress really suits you. You can see that she is sincere just byrepparttar 123920 way she says it and it brightens up your whole day. She says it without waiting for a compliment in return. She says it without envy or jealousy and she also says it completely spontaneously.

I’ve included an excerpt of a list written by Steve Stephens of things you can say, every day…

"Good Job!" "You’re wonderful." "You look gorgeous today." "I appreciate allrepparttar 123921 things you have done for me." "You arerepparttar 123922 best friend I have." "I missed you today." "I can always count on you." "You make me feel good." "I am so proud to be married to you." "I’m sorry." "I was wrong." "What would you like?" "What’s on your mind?" "Thank you for loving me." "Thank you for accepting me."

I guarantee that saying something heartfelt and genuine to someone who’s done something for you, or someone who means a lot to you, will not only brighten their day, but yours too.

10 Things Between You and A Great Life

Written by Kathy Gates

6. Accepting Energy Drainers: Everyday crisis and problems ARE NOT "justrepparttar way it is". Choose to put life on your schedule. Make a conscious choice to simplify your tasks, organize your environment, and set up your life to support how you want to live.

7. Complaining Instead Of Asking: You will only get as much as you ask for. Complaining is passive, not active. Choose to consciously educate people on what you need by making a request instead of complaining.

8. Low Reserves: Without reserves to back you up, you will make decisions based on your LACK.lack of money, lack of time, lack of energy. And that will cause you to make mistakes, and miss opportunities. Systematically eliminate things from your life until you have a built-in reserve of time and money; then build from there.

9. Hiding your weakness: Let your weakness help you be more truthful. Educate people. "I'm really impatient; please let me know if I skip over something you don't understand." "I'm not good with secrets; please don't tell me anything that you don't want me to repeat."

10. Wishing Instead of Planning: START! Do something! If you just sit around *wishing* that things would be better, it's not likely that they ever will be. As my mother used to say, "wish in one hand, pour peas inrepparttar 123919 other.see which fills up faster." Create a plan, and get into action.
