Manner Monday®: 4th of July

by Carey Sue Vega in Family, Manner Monday, Manners

If you live in the States, I hope you are enjoying a fun-filled long weekend with family and friends to celebrate the Fourth of July!  And a Happy Canada Day to our friends up North! Whichever Holiday you may (or may not) be celebrating, I hope you are able to unplug and focus on some good old-fashioned ‘face-time’.  Who knows what great opportunities may unfold to have an interesting conversation with someone.  And keep your eyes open for someone doing a kind deed.

After the fireworks and the celebrations have subsided, take a minute to reflect on the weekend and drop an old-fashioned hand-written note in the mail.  Share with someone, how much you enjoyed your time together and thanking them for something specific they did or said that made a positive impact on you.  I promise, it will be time well spent.

Do you have a ‘manner’ or question you would like to see covered in a post?  Feel free to send me your thoughts, I would love to hear from you.

My goal is to help my students (both youth and adults) to feel more comfortable and confident in the social and professional skills; do you know someone who would enjoy this post?  If so, please share it and encourage them to sign up to receive Manner Monday?  I would appreciate it!  And if you’re new to Manner Monday, I’d love for you to take a minute to learn more about why I started it. You can click here to read my very first post that tells all about it.

Thanks for reading!
