Friend A Says:Look at these and tell me I’m pretty.
Friend B Says: (laughs) I always think you are pretty.
Friend A Says: I don’t.
Friend B Says: That’s because you don’t love you as much as I love you.
People need positive re-inforcement. Someone fangirled me recently and I’m fairly sure I’ll live on that for months. I was floored. What? You read me every day? EVERY DAY? You are kidding me. Really?
These tanks were created by Carra Fargis and are available for free on Xstreet in memory of a friend of hers who didn’t know she was beautiful. You can read the story there.
My point today is that your words matter. Your words have the power to lift someone up. Random blog comments can make someone’s day – someone you don’t know. Or even someone you do.
I’d like to encourage everyone to say something nice when you read a blog post over the next few days. Do you see something awesome? TELL the person. Buy something super cool? Tell the creator how much you like it. Your words of support mean a lot to people. You don’t even know it but they do.
It’s not a blogger challenge.
It’s just a nice idea.
No. Not me. I’ve got an ego the size of the Titanic. Do it for someone else. GO!
No fashion details. Just nice thoughts.
