As we move through the day, it is easy to be so focused on our tasks, our objectives, ourselves, that the idea of acknowledging the presence of those around us gets forgotten.
Nevertheless, once we go beyond the immediate concerns of the moment, we can take a few minutes to reflect on what the day would be like without those around us. We might discover that, in many instances, time spent in the company of others is the source of lasting memories.
Acknowledging the presence of those around us may create a positive moment for them. And, in all likelihood, put a smile on our face as we see their appreciation for our sentiments towards them.
Starting with the words ‘Thank you’ is perhaps the first step in acknowledging the presence of those around us. Directing the thanks towards a specific action or reason could be the next step.
To get the ball rolling, let me thank you for taking the time today to read this ‘Acknowledging the presence of those around us’ post.
