Loud aunt's aside, I want to talk about being excited for other people. Regardless if you are having a bad day, or you're late to work, or you really could just not care about what the other person is excited about...show some enjoyment for the other person.
My cousin just got his first car. It's a Saturn and he's wanted it for quite some time now. He texted me on Saturday night with a picture of the car and said, "It's Mine!!!" To be completely honest, him getting a car had no direct connection to my life. However, I asked him a couple of questions and told him how excited I was for him. He was just like a kid on Christmas morning...so happy!!! I was glad I could talk to him and share in his joy.
Just being happy for someone else brightens their day. And it could possibly brighten yours too?
So go ahead, get excited for someone else!!!
Time: 15 minutes total time of texting
