Lesson 42: Don’t leave the good things unsaid or undone

Most of the regrets I have ever had or ever encountered revolved around the phrases “I would have,” “I should have,” and “I could have.”  Those are, in my opinion, the famous three letter phrases that proceed something the speaker feels regret or remorse for not having said or done something they feel or believe they should have.  We all have moments where we feel this sentiment, and if you don’t, then I applaud you for never having missed the opportunities in your life.  If you are like most people, there is always room to add and improve your game when it comes to saying or doing everything so that there are no regrets.

No matter how miniscule it may seem, a little kindness goes a long way.  There is no such thing as too many compliments and there is no such thing as an overabundance of kind gestures.  Even if someone says it is too much, deep down, understand that there is a better chance than not that they deeply appreciate it.  The good things have a positive impact on others and there should never be a shortage of it.  It is as simple as making any positive observation about them and letting them know that you noticed.

Why not?  You are already looking at them and unless you are completely zoned out, you are seeing so many different things all at once.  The opportunities are as abundant as your imagination and all you need is the will to focus on the positive.  Nice hair!  I love your glasses.  You look wonderful in those shoes.  I love your taste in fashion.  Did you do your hair?  Yes? You absolutely rocked it!  No?  So then you just wake up naturally with beautiful hair?  These are but a fraction of the vast array of opportunities to let your significant other know that they continue to be amazing and wonderful every single day.
