The Honor Challenge

You Are Special print (charcoal)
What if we reached out and honored people regularly.

Treating people with Importance, Respect, and Kindness should not be reserved for “Special” days…

What if every day we treated people like it was their birthday.
Called them up, sent a nice message, acknowledged them, took them to coffee or lunch, gave a smile and/or a compliment…

How would it be if our words and actions reflected that we cared about whether or not they felt important and valued!

Challenge: Pick a person, and for an entire week really treat them special, as if it was genuinely their birthday. Do this full-heartedly, but don’t mention the challenge to them or others. The Honor Challenge
Note: This is not necessarily about material gifts but a frame of mind, words, and actions (outreach.)

It’s important to think of how this will affect people make sure your words and actions are appropriate for the relationship you have with them.  You also could discuss the week with the person afterwards tell them everything was genuine but sparked by this challenge, and then get their feedback, and maybe encourage them to try it with someone.

4447Also as an alternate to this challenge you could choose a different person for each day of the week.

I wonder how relationships and/or self-esteem will be affected…

The idea is to change our state of mind. To impact how we think about and interact with the people in our lives, and to have more connected relationships.

Please spread this challenge and Share your experiences

Full of Silence

The air is full of silence, yearning to hear a gentle breeze.

Can you see this soul full of fears and dreams, simply needing that burden to ease?

The sky is full of silence; winged creatures anxiously await dawn’s glare.

Can you hear this mind racing; lusting for an opportunity to share?

The earth is full of silence, life bustling beneath in quiet urgency.

Can you feel this heart thunderously beat, chaos availing what you cannot see?

This voice is full of silence, caught in a web of unspoken pain.

Can you understand the need; how loud the empty shrieks can reign?
