From gifts, to cards to words that you speak. It is so important to encourage your friends and family. It doesn’t have to be a difficult occasion to show others encouragement.

Encouragement is defined as the action of giving someone support, confidence or hope. This is important to do for those who you love but also towards all people.

My friend Neil made this No Bake Cheesecake for me as a surprise!

Whether you open the door for a stranger, smile at a person at the grocery store or tell your delivery person thank you. Not only do you make that person feel better I also find that it makes me feel better too. One of my goals is to do a random act of kindness every single day. I know that sounds like a lot at first but it really isn’t.

My friend Julia surprised me with this gift!

You can do something fun like pay for the persons coffee behind you at Starbucks or you can bake a pan of brownies and deliver them to a neighbor. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Any random act of kindness or offer of generosity is something that puts a smile on someones face. Just give it a try and do it!
