Making the world a better place.....

Belittle-
"to regard or portray as less impressive or important than appearances indicate; depreciate; disparage".
Have you ever been put down, made fun of, received a negative comment? Of course you have, everyone has. How did it make you feel? Awful, I know. I do believe in the power of not letting others tell you how to feel about yourself, but even for a few minutes... that negative comment can sting.

It's never made sense to me why people go out of their way to put others down. Does it actually make them feel good about themselves? I doubt it. I know every time I have made the mistake of doing so, I feel awful. It doesn't make you look like a better person either, actually it does quite the (read more)opposite. No one wants to be around someone that makes other people feel bad about themselves. It's not uplifting, it's not helpful and why waste our breath in doing so..

Compliment
" an expression of esteem, respect, affection, or admiration; especially: an admiring remark"

Think for just a moment of the last time someone said something about your work, something you did, or anything that you accomplished, how good that made you feel... I bet your smiling thinking about it right now. Doesn't it warm your heart to hear such things? They took the time our of their life, to noticed something about you and to tell you what it meant to them. How little of your time would it take each day to do the same for others. Between facebook, texting, phone calls, emails, twitter etc etc etc, there are so many ways you can reach out to someone else..if not in person-which is always a appreciated thing. That co-worker that's having a bad day, your spouse, someone you just pass by on the street... think about the boost you would give them by a few simple words. It's free to do and last forever!! I've said this before and I will say it again- How better would this world be if everyone gave someone else a compliment every day?!?! Love truly does make the world go-round!

The difference between an honest positive opinion & a negative one....
When people ask for your opinion, you should give it honestly. It doesn't do them any good to sugar coat everything..however, there is typically something good you can find..so look for it..point it out. Most people can handle constructive criticism, it's all in the way you present it. They will be more wiling to take your helpful advice as well, if done in positive light! Unfortunately, we as humans don't take the time to think before we speak, but what a difference it makes when we do! Why not instead use our time and energy to build someone up and make them feel great about themselves. They they will be more likely to do the same thing for others, and it just keeps going and going....

I want you to find someone to make feel good today. One person, you can make their day better by a few simple words..or a pat on the back. A co-worker, friend, spouse, child, or the cashier at the grocery store that is having a terrible day..it won't take you but a minute. I bet it will make your day a little brighter too!!!...... To quote a clique "spread the love"!!!
