Be Kind

So. Many. People. are being mean to each other right now, because of the Vegas tragedy..? I get it, we are frustrated, scared, and feel helpless, those things make us edgy and desperate for solutions. So people are lashing out when they see the problem and solution differently. However, I wish we could pleeeease as a nation stop the hateful bantor and just for one moment only post and comment loving peaceful words, or, say nothin at all… 

My soul aches over this tragedy, such sadness and loss 😩 One thing we should all be able to agree on, is that kindness is never a bad choice. 

Be Kind.

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.
