Have you ever thought something nice about someone but didn’t tell them? Whether they are a close family member or an acquaintance at work, acknowledgment is direct access from one heart to another. Yes, that can be scary, and perhaps even seems easier left unsaid.
But don’t be fooled! Acknowledgment is actually a gift you give to another and, in turn, yourself. And the more you do it, the more fun and easy it becomes. The next time you have a thought like this, speak up, and tell the other person what you appreciate about them. Acknowledge them with no attachment to how they respond.
The gift of acknowledgment is magical. You’ll feel a new sense of affinity and love, which is really what the holidays are all about!
