Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 4)

say 4

Today we are going to talk about #18 on our list of things we should say more often.

Here is a surprise corn dog I bought you because you’re my friend

I know that this seems a little silly, but it is the idea behind this that is important.  Our lives are filled with many people.  Some of them we consider our friends.  When you have a friend, you have a responsibility to be a good friend to that person.  That means being there for them to listen, to laugh, to cry, to give advice, to hug, or to just joke around with.

A part of being a good friend means that from time to time, you will get your friend a gift.  It does not have to be a fancy gift or cost a lot of time and money.  It just needs to be from the heart.  It should show your friend that you were thinking about them and you wanted to get them something to show them that you care.

I don’t know about you, but growing up in Iowa, going to the State Fair each August is a tradition.  I just love going to the fair.  I have gone every year of my life except for the one year that I lived in Oklahoma.  When you have been going for that long, you develop certain rituals.  Each year when I go, I have certain places I always go look at like the Industrial Arts Building and the Horticulture Building.  I also have certain foods I eat each and every year.  At the top of that list is a corn dog.  I love corn dogs and no one makes them like they do at the Iowa State Fair.  I can tell you that if one of my friends bought me a corn dog just because they wanted to, I would just love that gift.

Our assignment this week is to pick one of our friends and get them a small gift to show them that you were thinking about them and give it too them.  It will really brighten their day.  It will also help us remember that it is important to do things like that to show our friends that we really care about them.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
