The 100 Day Challenge, Day 40:
I had to continue this one as I was missing maybe the most important piece. There is no better way to fill yourself with good, than to fill someone else with good.
One of the best ways to uplift yourself is to help someone else feel better by giving them a kind word or supporting them. You know that old saying- you don’t have to look far to find someone who is in a worse place than you are.
People need our help- everywhere.
Whether you look for an opportunity to further a cause you believe in, help your neighbor carry in the groceries, help out at school, or offer a kind word to someone who needs it, you start to notice that there are endless opportunities to make a difference in someone else’s life. Being unexpectedly kind is especially fun and I am a huge fan of random acts of kindness. This kind of activity just fills you with positive energy and overwhelmingly good feelings.
I think if we were all a little less afraid to give each other a compliment- to build each other up- to edify one another (that was a new word I learned a few years ago!) this world would be a much happier, positive place. Remember how the words you say mean so much to your brain and what it believes is true in your life? Well, the words you say are just important to those around you. Take the opportunity to impact their lives in a positive way.
And that’s another way that we fill ourselves with good! Maybe the most important way of all. What are you going to do this weekend to positively impact someone’s life?
PS- I am giving a shout out to all of the great Lyric Theatre folks who had their Annual Meeting tonight and know how to throw a FUN party- that group is an excellent example of what I am talking about in this post. You would have to look REAL hard to find a group of people more supportive of each other- BRAVO Lyric Theatre Company!
