A Beautiful and Unusual Way to Celebrate Someone Special

SherryRBThis is a Facebook post that was shared by Reid Tracy, CEO of Hay House Publishers last week, and I’m sharing it here because it involves such a very lovely and unusual way to celebrate someone – while they are alive, as well as after they have died. Not just that, Sherry Richert Belul, the inspiration behind this blog post is a big fan of giftedbygrief.com (and of course, I have strong connections with Louise L. Hay, having trained with her on the last training course she personally did, way back in 1990).

From Hay House, via Facebook

A couple of weeks ago, we had a meeting with our management team here at Hay House USA. We had a consultant working with us to improve our communication skills and thought patterns to help better manage our company and the 110 employees who work here.

At the end of the management meeting the consultant, Annie, asked the management team to spend four minutes telling each other how valuable they were and thank them for some of the special contributions they had toward the success of Hay House. Many of the managers were very touched as their colleagues told them the special qualities they had and how it contributed to their and Hay House’s success. We definitely don’t spend enough time telling people in our business life or personal lives how important they are. I believe it’s important to tell our loved ones and even our friends and co-workers what a wonderful person they are or about the good work they are doing.

    What a wonderful idea, to help us all feel valued, loved & cherished right here on Earth, right now. What an inspiration this could be for all of us to encourage each other to share our beautiful gifts of uniqueness now & live in the positive vibe that we are doing something to raise the planets vibrations rather than leaving appreciation dormant, unsaid wasted until it’s truly to late!
    A big thank you to you Jane (& Hay house) for sharing & making a difference & shining your light on to an area that is so important 🙂 xxx

        Thank you Jane Duncan Rogers for highlighting the work of our amazing friend Sherry Richert Belul.
        When I first read this letter from Reid Tracy and Sherry’s ‘love’ suggestions, I was inspired by the many people who may appreciate receiving this type of feedback while they were still alive. I love the idea of putting these many described loves in the written form for reading and cherishing during the quiet or sad days–especially as one becomes more reflective about their life accomplishments.
        I adore and am inspired by both you and Sherry. Keep doing what you do!

    Thank you SO much Jane, for this beautiful article + your generous love/support. I adore you! Also, thank you to Susan + Janet for these thoughtful comments. It means so much to me that there are so many people who are part of this movement to say it now + not wait until it is too late to express our love and appreciations. The more we can all start to express our love in the moment, the more we “raise the planet’s vibration” just like Susan said! I know this is true! I know we can change the world by expressing more love and not limiting ourselves.

    Thank you to each of you for making me smile extra wide this morning. I feel your good vibes!!!! <3

    P.S. Jane, Susan, or Janet: if any of you feel so moved as to send a short note to Louise Hay expressing your appreciation for her legacy of Hay House Publishing + the countless authors who have brought such compassion + joy into our lives, I hope you would do so. Hay House is collecting these Love Lists for Louise Hay’s 90th birthday in October. Send to: LoveLists@HayHouse.com
