Today I’d like to talk about absolutely nothing at all. I don’t have anything in mind (it’s literally empty), and to be honest part of the reason I’m writing now is to avoid doing homework. This past weekend was General Conference, which, of course, means that I had zero time to do anything other than that. In the end, though, everything worked out.
To explain, most of my posts are just going to be rants about what I’ve been thinking about. Maybe they’ll go somewhere, maybe not. I’ll try to get some sort of point out of everything though.
- Physical touch – these people are touchy-feely. They love hugs, holding hands, kissing, being close to the ones they care about, etc. Not feeling close to the ones they love physically can be devastating. Think of the little kid who always wants to be held or hugged.
- Words of affirmation – these people thrive on words of approval. Need to hear the good they’ve done. Need to know they’re needed, wanted, appreciated, and that people around them are grateful for what they do, their presence, their efforts and hard work, etc.
- Quality time – these people need time. They need one-on-one time spent just doing nothing. Chatting, watching the stars, road tripping, no distractions, no agenda, no nothing. Just spending time together.
- Receiving gifts – these people feel loved when they receive gifts. They don’t have to be expensive, fancy, or even overly thought out. Simple things like a cookie, a flower, a card, a letter, a thank-you note, or even a photograph can mean the world to them.
- Acts of service – these people feel loved when others help them in their work. Doing the dishes for them, making food, washing the car, shining your shoes, walking the dog, or any one of a number of things can really brighten their day.
