Something we need more of is to spread happiness and positivity everywhere! And also to randomly compliment others without expecting a compliment back.
A few days ago while I was at the gym with my sister and we were doing two different things but while I was resting I sat and watched what she was doing and noticed what good technique she had and how strong and fit she was looking so I decided to send a text message saying that and it made her so happy. She's never been the person who has worked out the most or priortized exercise but now she does and she has made so much progress which makes me so happy for her sake as well and when she hears that the progress is noticeable she just shines up!!
And then yesterday while I was at the gym I saw a middle aged lady who was working out tough and looked so strong so I mentioned that while we were both in the middle of our sets and she looked so happy afterwards. And it made me happy to make someone else happy and genuinely mean it!
I am one of the people who only compliment when I genuinely mean it I. E if I don't like an outfit or something I won't pretend I like it,instead I'll just be quiet. But that's why people who know me well get a compliment from me (which is often) they know I truly mean it!
And then today while I was out walking I met two people also out walking on the island and when you're focused you can look a little angry (I know I personally look angry/very focused when I workout or am out running or walking). But I smiled at them both and first they looked a little perplexed but then smiled back and I like that "runners/walkers smile /eye contact ". It's like a "hello and good job" with just a smile!
And then finally a few days ago while I was waiting at the tube station I dropped my sun glasses and a guy walking by picked them and told me I looked very beautiful before walking away (he gave me back my glasses ;) ( abd that was soo sweet. Because it's one thing to get compliments from guys who just want my number or to take me out for a drink but another thing to get one from someone who doesn't have any underlying intentions and just wants to share a compliment! And it made me really happy! Just a small thing like a compliment from a stranger!
We need more positivity and positive energy. So much comparing and eye glances... if i ever get bitchy looks from certain girls I smile at them and that shocks them. But often I don't even notice those looks, haha!
I think we should all get into the habit to smile more,compliment others more and mean it! Make others happy but ALSO compliment ourselves! I mean why did I actually smile from that random compliment from a stranger but can't accept when my boyfriend tells me I'm beautiful? It's strange... its like I can't accept that people close to me compliment me but random strangers is ok?
More positivity! More happiness!!!
