That's an excellent example of why it's always good to reread before sending an email. Even the simplest sentences can sometimes be made so much better!

This is such a nice post about positive language.I am so impressed with your example of positive language and yes I do appreciate your example.There is clear different in that sentence.

Hi,
I love writing English and I really love your site. I never thought of positive language seriously, especially the greeting and ending of the message when I traded lots of emails with my colleagues during my routine work. I'll be more considerate.
Thanks so much for the tips.

Simple, yet significantly superior! I deal with the same time travails for my training sessions & this sentence is just the right one for a corporate, adult-learner audience. I do appreciate it!

Hi, Leela. I am glad you appreciate "We will begin promptly." I am pleased with it too.

I'm so pleased to read your note on positive language and the example really drives the point home. I too belong to the teaching fraternity and do make efforts to consciously use positive language.
I'll look forward to reading your further posts on positive language.
