how do you make people feel?

i've heard the following quote twice over the past week and it has really resonated with me:

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget the way you made them feel.--Maya Angelou

how often do we stop to reflect on how our words or actions really make people feel? this statement is SOOO powerful and i wanted to share it with fellow hip tranquil chicks striving to make a difference in the world. there will always be naysayers and pessimists, but it is up to you to do your very best to make others feel special. what small action will you take this week to make those you come into contact with feel GREAT?

A man at my work asked where my friend was today. I said oh she is here somewhere. Anyway I later told my friend lightheartedly that she might have a secret admirer because this man had asked where she was. You could tell she was secretly pleased.

It is a nice feeling making other people feel good :) Even if it is something as small as that.
