I’ve never wrote before outside of academics and my own journal,unless you count an acrostic I wrote in kindergarten that got published, but I don’t.
I recently started writing everyday in my own personal journal and so now I have decided to take the next step and try and write every day on here. It is going to be a journey for me to find my footing as well as find out what I can write about that is still cathartic for me and useful for others.
Today I read an article I found while scrolling on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-happened-when-i-complimented-every-person-met-entire-jeff-haden?trk=v-feed&lipi=urn%3Ali%3Apage%3Ad_flagship3_feed%3B0WoPH55mYO9r3UmfKMm41A%3D%3D), to sum it up this man decided to give a compliment to every person he saw for a day. While this activity had positive results he mentioned how difficult this would be to do in his every day life.
What I try and do is smile at everyone, this small act allows a small connection to be made between me and the other person, and usually I am given a smile in return. I do try and compliment people whenever I have the opportunity, but I am able to touch more people with a friendly smile.
I don’t know how to wrap this up, or really the importance of that share, but I know that I have to start somewhere!
