hi friends

happy sunday

let's slow down a little, shall we?

articulate

This week I got a challenging negative comment on the blog, and it took me at least an hour to process and articulate a response that felt right. Then I thought about how flippantly I respond to positive comments. I read every single one, but often my reply is as quick as, “Thanks so much!”

What if I took as much time to be articulate with encouragement and thankfulness?

I’ve realized that I usually use quick dramatic generalizations (“You KILLED IT! WOW!”) when encouraging friends or colleagues instead of taking the time to be specific. I think specificity and taking the time to be articulate means more to people than all-caps-enthusiasm or exclamation points.

I’m challenging myself to put as much thought and time into positive interactions as I do the potentially negative ones. Words matter so much.
