Flowers make people happy and bring out smiles. Are you skeptical? Try it! Go to a local florist (Starbright Floral Design), call one (800.520.8999) or visit a floral website (www.starflor.com) and send someone something small and stylish. Sit back and wait for a reaction.
As I have stated in earlier columns, the best reason ever to send flowers is “just because”. Sure there are the standard occasions (birthdays maternity and the like) but those are almost expected (predictable I would say). It is the spontaneity of the moment that brightens a day. Flowers pack thunder in the world of positive feelings and emotions. Flowers on someone’s desk in the middle of the day (when it is a total surprise) is emotional firepower.
Think about this: You say to someone “have a good day” and more often than not they will say “thanks, I’ll try”. Then you think to yourself: “No I mean it! I want you to have a good day”. So off you are to your florist outlet and you send flowers. An hour later they arrive with an appropriately witty card. Question: how hard does that person have to try to have a good day after they see the bright colors, the vibrant varieties and the fragrance that brings them to life? Chances are that you did not just cause that person to have a good day, but more like a great week!
For the next seven days (or so), the person sees your flowers first thing in the morning or a soon as they arrive in the office and all they do is think of you. They think of the great friend that gifted them a smile! Imagine your friend ever so carefully changing the water every day, cutting the bottom of the stems and taking care of YOUR flowers! Why do they do this? They want the flowers to live longer, the feeling to last.
What’s more, you feel good too. The real bonus is how it made you feel. When we do something nice for someone else, we invariably feel good too. It is impossible to receive a smile and not smile back. When someone flat-out says “you made my day” or “you sure turned this one around for me”, you will defy gravity. You will walk on air. Your confidence will rise and you will feel like you can do anything. You are a champ.
Practicing random acts of kindness is something we all like to do. Finding the right random act is always the challenge. So whether it is your mom, your lover, a friend, your work subordinate (or boss) or even a client; find the right words for the card and let the flowers do the rest.
