After sharing the afternoon with my dear friend and Joy Maker, DeEtte, I am reminded that those special people in our lives are just a mere text, call or email away.
These are the ones that we just pick up right where we left off no matter how long it’s been since we’ve connected.
Do you have someone like that in your life?
This inspired me to share this quick and easy idea that brings us and others joy in an instant!
It’s called “Giving out TOYs ( Thinking of You’s).
All you need is a smartphone, a text messaging app, and 30 seconds of time.
That’s it! In this video, I share how you can bring more joy and connection by Giving out TOYs!
All you have to do is scroll to the bottom of your text messages, pick someone who you admire, and appreciate whom you’ve not been in touch with in a while.
Then text “Hi ____, I’ve been thinking of you. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you. – Your Name“
Don’t forget your name in case they lost their contacts and don’t recognize your number.
Hit Send! Repeat with another person. Just be genuine.
WARNING! If you scroll past the name of someone who triggers a negative experience, keep scrolling. It’s also a reminder to delete some old text conversations. I’ll talk about letting go in another video. Just find someone who is special to you for this exercise.
It’s such a simple yet powerful idea. I invite you to try it out.
I guarantee it will make your day as well as someone else’s.
I just gave out 3 TOYs…how many are you giving out?
Wow! You always move me with your words, Yasmin. How blessed I am to spend time with you as well as share the many stories, thoughts, and feelings. They inspire and lift each other up in encouragement and support, my heart is surrounded in love and Joy, and my day is filled with my bouquet of flowers (Bryan). I adore you, Yasmin. – DeEtte
