bring out the best in them.

you know that person who you love being around because they make you feel so good, so comfortable, so funny, smart, accomplished, so open, so at-your-best?

that person is so awesome.

that person makes you feel good because they genuinely care about you.

they make you feel smart because they ask you questions about the things that you are interested in and passionate about, seeking out your depth.

they make you feel comfortable by being completely authentic, not trying to be something they’re not, and, effectively, making you feel okay to be the same.

they make you feel accomplished by asking questions about your life, and celebrating the things that you have done and make you happy.

they are open and transparent with you, giving you the green light to be the same with them. You are at your best with them because they strive to see you at your best – it will only enrich their life more.

we all know this person. we all love this person. and i BET you know what I’m going to say now…

be that person.

  1. I love reading your posts Laura, you always seem to know just what to say, just as I click on the post and read! This reminds me of a time a while back, in my life when things were not to great, I did not know what to do with my feelings and I was really stuck. So never having been a church goer, I asked a friend of mine if she would take me with her one Sunday. Of course she did. I was astounded at what the preacher was talking about, it was as if he got a memo that spelled out my problems then wrote the sermon to answer all my questions and give me hope. The other thing I liked about this church was that no one gave me a dirty look or asked where I had been if I missed a couple of Sunday’s, this way I felt comfortable to just show up when I felt the need, and every time, the preacher always said something that made me glad I went.

    So even though I sometimes play catch up on your posts, there is always something in them that helps answer my deep questions that I never ask and sooth any lingering ache I might have. Thank you so much for all your words of wisdom Trina
