I am thankful for the people that live near me. I feel safe in my neighborhood because my neighbors are trustworthy. I enjoy raising my family around other families who have similar values as me.
I feel comfortable talking to my neighbors and spending time together. I speak with my neighbors whenever I see them outside. I speak positively to my neighbors and about them.
Holidays and special occasions are even more special because I can share them with my neighbors. We gather together to make lasting memories.
I am a friend to my neighbors as they are to me. I look after my neighbors’ homes as they do mine. When my neighbors go on vacation, I offer to pick up their mail and keep an eye on their home.
If I do not see my neighbors for a few days, I check on them to make sure they are in good health. I offer my help when the neighbors are sick or need a favor. Helping each other out makes us great neighbors.
Whenever I see my neighbors outside of the neighborhood, I always speak to them because, although we live near each other, the reason we get along is because we like each other.
Today, I plan to go on a walk and meet more of my neighbors. I choose to engage in conversation and learn something new about the people living near me.
Self-Reflection Questions:1. Do I know my neighbors by name? 2. How can I be a better friend to my neighbors? 3. What do I enjoy about my community?
