Cheer Someone Up

Want to feel better - Instantly?

Call a friend in need and be a friend indeed.

Cheering someone else on and up always makes me feel better. Who can you call right now? Who could use a joke, some encouragement and affection? Whoever came to mind first, that's who you call. Lucky them.

Last week we had our Area Toastmasters Speech contest. The contestant from our group had worked hard and really, really wanted to win. She did not. I could feel her disappointment. The next morning I called to see if she was doing well. She sounded fine and stated that she doesn’t let disappointment hold her down. I was glad to hear she was doing better.
I should take a lesson from her. Sometimes I allow disappointments to hold me down and I obsess over what I could have done differently.
Cheering someone else may teach you a lesson in resilience.
