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.
Note: This is not necessarily about material gifts but a frame of mind, words, and actions (outreach.)
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.
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.
