Today's #RAKweek18 theme is "Be Good to People Who Have Been Good to You."
How often do you let the people who have been Good to you know how much you appreciate them? When's the last time you reached out to a person who has been a big influence in your life and let them know what a difference they made?
We live in one nutball-crazy-swirly-whirly-go-go-go world. It's a GOOD world, don't get us wrong. We love it here. We just find it sooooo hard to keep up sometimes, even with the most basic things. And one thing that seems to fall by the wayside in our quest to do #allthethings is to let the people who mean the most to us or those who have inspired us or impacted our lives in some way know that.
Here at Be Good to People, we walk, talk eat, breathe, sleep and preach BGTP. Yet sadly, we have been negligent more times than in letting the people who mean the most to us know and adequately expressing our gratitude. It is truly our biggest pain point and keeps our Founder awake at night. We are diligently working on building a team to help with the load...but that's a whole other blog post.
Our point is, we are doing the best that we can with the resources that we have. We are human. Our hearts and intentions are pure and sometimes we fall short of living our mission. We know that your heart and intentions are Good. You wouldn't be here if that wasn't the case.
Having said that...we think you will appreciate what we're asking you to do today. We're asking you to streeeeeetch that calendar of yours and squeeze one more, really important thing into this day.
Today is Be Good to People Who Have Been Good to You day...and we ask you to hit pause on your busy-ness.
We promise you will be so glad that you did.
The call-to-action is to reach out to at least one person (the more the better!) who has been Good to you in a meaningful way. Send a handwritten card, a thoughtful email or (gasp!) pick up the phone and let them know.
We're committed to it here at Be Good to People. Our whole team is sending out handwritten notes to at least three people, sending three emails and making one phone call to people who have been Good to them and they haven't expressed their gratitude ever, or for longer than they had intended.
Will YOU commit to today's #RAKweek18 call-to-action?
Let us know by commenting below, posting on our Facebook page or posting a pic on your Instagram and tagging us. We would especially love to hear your Good stories as a result of reaching out and we will share ours.
Not that we're going to count this as one of our outreaches, but we are incredibly grateful for YOU.
YOU are the reason that we get up and go to work each day. We care about each and every person in this community, we love you, and we are so very grateful for you and your support.
Wishing you a beautiful day full of Good,
Your friends at Be Good to People
