Lately, I have found myself clicking on articles with suggestions about little things you can do to have a happier life. I am focused on doing everything I can to be a better person. If I am being honest, I have not always been the most considerate or kind person. I think that I have always cared about people in a deep, meaningful way but I have also struggled with being guarded in all the wrong ways. Some of the less than fuzzy parts of my upbringing had subconsciously taught me that showing my emotions – good or bad – means that I am weak.
But the truth is I have some really amazing people in my life who deserve to be recognized. I have tried to focus on the positive aspects of each day and to show my gratitude for the small things. While I am challenging myself to grow as a person, I extend that to you!
This week I will focus on giving someone a genuine, substantial compliment every single day. A compliment beyond “I like your dress” – which by the way why is that a compliment at all? “I like (insert something about their appearance)” deems a thank you? Okay, mini-rant over.
I am hoping to extend this goal past my close friend group. Yes, they deserve it too but I want to impact someone’s day who does not already know I love them. So give it a try, readers! Hell, give me one! 🙂
Until next time,
