Compliments fill hearts

Hey Subscribers! (all three of you :o))

The theme of today at the risk of sounding like a hippy child (I am one) is, spread the love.

This morning I did a bit of Hairdressing, lovely client. We got onto the subject of charitable actions and threw around a few ideas. One of them being a linked group who come together to donate items where they can, for local families in dire situations. For example, families affected by fire, victims of domestic abuse starting again, etc etc. The list could go on and on. The group can be messaged when the need arises and pull together, items, clothing etc for the family in need. What a difference that could make. Now, Imagine this group in the next community, then another in the next, heck in EVERY community.

You’ve heard the saying “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

Ideas and comments on this would be greatly received. It’s about being the person who cares, imagine the world full of people with the type of heart you have, would it be peaceful? Would it be giving? Would it be full of judgement?
I know that is one of my faults, especially when I see bad parking jobs!!. How many of us have seen a child behaving badly in a superstore and said “If I was that child’s Mother….!” It’s right, there are bad parents in the world, sadly, but there are also children with disorders like ADHD/ADD. How would we feel after making that comment to find actually that child has this and it fact, the Mother is a friend of your friends and a very good parent. We judge too quickly.

On a lighter note, a lovely friend of mine today asked to read some of my writing (my book). I consider her a close friend so I sent a little intro part. This is what she said;

“Kelly I need more please 🙂 its very good so far how long you been writing it for?”

When I read that, it made me want to write more. Just a few words. A few words can have an enormous impact. It lifted my spirits as I was feeling stuck again with my writing. So from now on, Vicky, Alison and Kimber; you are my wingwomen. Egging me on from the sidelines with your confidence in my current venture. Thank you for being wonderful friends. (I am now imagining you with a wonder-woman capes on for added effect Lol)

Compliments are very under-rated. I try to give at least one consciously, every single day, hundreds if I can. If i see a lady with nice boots, I’m gonna tell her. You never know the kind of day she is having and I just let her know she looks good. Some people ignore you, others smile so bright, you know you spead some love and made someone happy.

As I am learning Acronyms at the moment I am calling it a CM (compliment). So go on, get out there. Give your CM’s out to everyone! How many people’s spirits can we lift? How many days can we brighten? Lets do this thang :o)

Love and ‘Moments’
