Wednesday Wisdom - May 1st

Gratitude.png

“Thanks for your patience! I’m running behind, I’ll be there soon!”
instead of: “I’m sorry! I’m running late.”
-
“That’s not going to work for me right now, but thanks for thinking of me! Maybe I’ll be available next time!” .
instead of: “I’m sorry, I would love to volunteer this weekend but I’m just so busy with the kids and work and.....”
-
“I would be so grateful for your help on this project. Do you have some free time this week?”
instead of: “I’m sorry to inconvenience you, but can you help me with this project?”
-
There are a million ways to show gratitude instead of apologizing.
Save your apologies for situations that are truly justifiable, like hurting someone’s feelings.
