Challenge: Random Act of Kindness (for three days)

I took on this challenge because this is is something I do every day because I too agree that people deserve to be complimented on anything that stands out to the people around them. Compliments also make people feel noticed and valued so I think that randomly giving them to people  can make a huge difference. I will continue to do this every day because I believe that the slightest act of kindness can make a difference in someone else’s life and that is something that I strive for every day.

Here are the things I did over the last three days:

Day 1: I sent a good morning text to one of my friends who I know is going through some rough times right now and they had responded a few hours later saying that my little message had made their morning better. And I have been doing this since I became friends with this person because every day is a different situation for them and I want them to have a good start to their day.

Day 2: For Haloween, I went out with some of my girl friends and at the bar that we were at – there a bunch of people in costumes. I complimented every girl that I saw who was with her friends or by herself and they all responded in shock and then thanked me. I think that woman always look to get affirmations from men and always forget that other woman can be and are genuine as well with what they say.

Day 3 (today): I told my coworker that I was proud of her for accomplishing a project that she had been working on for a very long time and it was very difficult. She went silent and then smiled and thanked me and said “that really means a lot.” She was doubted a lot as a child and by her peers so I think that telling her that I was proud of her meant a lot.

  1. Yesssss! This is great! I am so glad you took on my challenge! I love what you did on Halloween, because you’re right! It’s easy for us ladies to forget that most of our greatest supporters can be other women, and not all women are jealous or mean. Plus, I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that we dress up or get ready for ourselves, and when we have other ladies notice it means so much more because ladies know the time and dedication it takes to be getting ready. Love this so much! Continue to being a great supporter of your friends, coworkers, and strangers! It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that people are noticing and are there, even when you feel alone.
