Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 23)

say 23

Well, we made it through the entire list of things that we should say more often.  If you missed any of them, here is the complete list:

  1. Thank you.
  2. Excuse me.
  3. Here is a surprise corn dog I bought you because you’re my friend.
  4. I’m sorry.
  5. I forgive you.
  6. You can do it!
  7. I’ve got barbecue sauce on my shirt too.
  8. Hello person I’ve never met before.  Here is a high five!
  9. Everything is going to be OK.
  10. Aw! You got me a corn dog too!  You shouldn’t have!
  11. I don’t know.
  12. You’re so awesome…I named my dog (boat) after you

…I legally changed my name to yours

Just tell people they are awesome and mean it.

  1. Hello, person I’ve never met before! Here’s a high-five!
  2. My sports team isn’t always the best sports team.
  3. Just listen.  Sometimes nothing is the best thing you can say.
  4. Fart sound.
  5. I disagree with you, but I still like you as a person who is a human being and I will treat you like that because if I didn’t it would make everything bad and that’s what lots of people do and it’s lame. It’s OK to disagree, but don’t be mean.
  6. AAAAAA!
  7. Life is tough, but so are you.
  8. Something nice. If you can’t think of anything nice to say, you’re not thinking hard enough.

Bonus: Let’s dance!


As promised, here is the link to the video where I got this list from.

Isn’t that video just absolutely adorable?  I love the list.  I think that it seems pretty simple, but I think that is the whole point.  Saying nice things to people and treating them nicely is not that complicated.  We are the ones who try to make it hard.  I think that if we could remember a few of these things and say them, we could drastically change how relate to people and get along.

I am curious; did any of you try to do any of these things?  How did it go?  What was your favorite thing from the list?  Please share your comments with us.

Life is a very strange journey indeed.  Remember, we may not all be on the same journey, but we are all on a journey.  If we have a chance to smile and dance along the way, well, even better.

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%
