Humility is a lesson best learned when writing a letter of reference or recommendation for someone you admire greatly. This week I had the honor to do so, and it was a blessing to have been able to.

If you haven’t written someone a recommendation, I advocate doing so. If you don’t know someone well enough – or don’t admire someone enough – to write a heart-felt honest letter about their ability to make the world a better place, it might be time to adjust your focus. The world is full of wonderful WONDERFUL people who need reminding that they’re amazing.

We all have our flaws; and we all lose sight of our flaws when we are able to help others focus on their innate goodness and world-changing ability just by being who they are.
