I have a challenge for you…
Take a quick few minutes to list the people who have made an impact on your life (for better or worse). Think of people who exist in your current world, and people from your past. Think of people you grew up with, went to school with, worked with, lived with or near.
Now count the number of people you’ve connected ith in recent months. Consider the quality of that connection. Was it a quick “like” on a Facebook post? Was it text message reminding someone to do something?
When was the last time you reached out to someone just to let them know you care?
In this week’s episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I share tips on the lost art of connecting with the people we love with short, personal notes.
Here are some things I referenced in today’s episode:

OMGoodness… this is slightly embarrassing (okay, more than slightly)… but yes, this is my desk. Sigh… now can you understand why I couldn’t focus?
The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level by Gay Hendricks – The big question asked (and answered) in this book is this: Are you limiting your success because of your own “upper limit problem”? If you’re like me, the bell will keep going “ding, ding, ding” as you are reading this book.
Explore your creative side on www.canva.com – this free graphic service is AMAZING! You can upload your own photos or images or you can use theirs (some cost $1 to use). You can use their design templates, or just play around with colors, shapes, and designs.
Print your own note cards on www.vistaprint.com – this website allows you to create lovely note cards (and many other items) using their designs (which you can customize to your needs) or upload your own images to use. I’ve ordered business cards and postcards from them and have been pleased with the products.
Disclaimer: As I shared in the podcast episode, I don’t have any financial relationship with any of the above services. I have used or purchased their products with my own funds.
If you enjoyed today’s episode, I hope you will accept my challenge and let someone know you are thinking of them today. It will most definitely brighten their day!
