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.
