For my birthday last, my amazing brother wrote me a letter. A letter that now has a permanent home in my wallet, so that I can read it anytime I want/need. Those words mean more to me than any gift he could ever buy me.
Ryan wrote ALL OVER our bathroom mirror after I'd gone through a particularly tough couple of weeks (filled with self-loathing). I do not plan to erase his words anytime soon.
But the point of this is not to humble-brag about how awesome people think I am. ;) (JOKE.) It's to get to this...Recently, my good friend Richard and I were having a random discussion about random things - like usual - and we got on the topic of compliments. One thing led to another and I told him I try to give at least one compliment a day. He told me he liked that idea. I went on to explain that, for me, nothing makes me feel better than seeing that I've made someone else feel good. We continued with our conversation and I challenged him to give a compliment a day. And since, recently, I feel like people in my life have been flooding me with praise and kindness, it's only right that I turn around and repay that into the universe.
