The say you never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression, right?
Today, many of us communicate through text and emails. Now, I know we have received a text or an email (that doesn’t include a greeting) from a person we have never met, or we may know. Greetings can set the tone for a conversation and the outcome.
I have come to understand that acknowledging a person matters and society has forgotten about this simple rule. As mothers, we all have chaotic days; we are juggling our work, families, personal affairs and “bam” we get a text from someone asking an innocent question that may come off a little careless. The question wasn’t selfish, but you think to yourself, can I get a “How is your day?”
Whether and how you were taught, a welcome message makes a profound difference. Greeting people is the first steps to instilling good manners in your children. It not only sets a good foundation for good communication skills in the future but it teaches our child to be genuine.
Greetings can make a huge difference in the direction of a conversation. The way we communicate shows, compassion, support, and kindness.
In the future take in consideration and be aware of the individuals you are addressing. Our kids our sponges; they are watching us and how we interact with others. A simple greeting can change a conversation and how others view us.
It’s been a while.
How are things?
What’s going on?
How’s it going?
How are you doing?
