It’s true!

Sometimes I just really need to hear a compliment.  Receiving a compliment when I am having a crappy day is the best way to turn that crappy day into a good day.  Lately I’ve been having a lot of crappy days and I had a feeling that I wasn’t the only one who needed a little self esteem boost, so I got an idea.

I decided  that I was going to try to give all the girls on my floor a little boost.  I decided to put a mirror in my hall and a giant piece of butcher paper so that they could all compliment each other.  I gave them a few rules of course: 1. Be nice. 2. Be sincere. 3. Don’t put any names (I’ll explain this one) 4. Have fun.

I didn’t want anyone to sign their name or to put someone else’s name because I felt that might defeat the purpose if the same people are getting all the compliments and someone doesn’t get any.  This way they are all anonymous and they could be about anyone on the floor, which makes me feel good at least.   If I walk by and see that someone said you are so nice, I would love to think that it is about me, and just the thought that it might be me makes me feel good on the inside.

There are already a lot more compliments on the page since that picture was taken just an hour ago.  I love the girls on my floor, they make me happy!

And just in case you are needing a little boost as well, I think that you are absolutely amazing because you read this post.  That means a lot and because of that YOU ROCK!
