[Start The Clapping]

In brightest day, in blackest night, this dog gives me the will and light.

June 4th, 2019

I help run a thing on Tuesday afternoons. To do that, they give me a folder that tells me what to say and what to do. Today, I noticed that after one of the statements, it read [Start the Clapping].

And I thought to myself: “Hell, yeah.”

That’s what we need to do. It’s so easy to join in on celebrating someone else’s accomplishments; it’s another thing completely to be the first one. So, be the first to tell everybody about your friend’s new business. Be the first to text or call them when they get a new job or a promotion. Be the first to ask how their new project is going. Be the first to tell them how much you love the work they’ve already done. Yes, celebrate with everybody else, too, but it really takes strength and guts and heart to be the first one.

Start the f&@×ing clapping.
