  1. Yes! Beautifully written! I definitely believe in the power of encouragement. Especially through words or even a smile. You can make someone’s day. Just uplifting someone from a negative place to positive can even help them pay it forward. We need more encouragement and positivity in the world.

    Words are very powerful for me too and I think it’s where people draw their motivation and inspiration from too. I love that your dad is very good with his words, he was such an amazing person, full of wisdom and love for all of you. It’s always nice to encourage others rather than to criticize them, they are compelled to do better with words of encouragement.

  4. I gotta agree. Hearing encouraging words really make a world of difference. Sometimes when you feel lost and someone reminds you that you can do it or have gone a long way, it makes for a world of difference.

  6. It is well known that by encouraging and showing a positive attitude will get you farther in life. No one knows what happened to the other to make them feel that way. I personally would rather go through life encouraging anyone and everyone to do what their hearts desire.

    As a teacher, I see just how important this is at a young age. We should strive to help build one another up.

  8. I love this: Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
    a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
    Its so true that we get so engrossed in our rooted routines that we don’t necessarily stop to well smell the roses and overlook the little things that help us every day.
