Say something... and make it good.

Just in case no one has said anything nice to you today...

“Promise me you'll always remember:
You're braver than you believe,
And stronger than you seem,
And smarter than you think."
- AA Milne

Your turn. Go say something nice to someone.

Mucho Amore

Hi Cat!

Thanks for the wonderful words and the reminder! I do think that people tend to forget/overlook/underestimate themselves. And most times, we need reminding.

One of my favourite lines- and one I think is especially poignant- is from Max Ehrmann's Desiderata. He urges you to, "Be gentle with yourself".

I quote it all the time. I honestly believe that people forget to be kind towards themselves- more often than not, they're harder on themselves than anyone else.

What are some of the quotes/lines that inspire you? What would you tell someone? Why?

Excellent quote! I have to constantly remind myself of this. In the mornings I wake up and say, "Holly you are amazing. I am here for you in whatever you need."

I think most of us are stronger, braver, and smarter than we give ourselves credit for. That's why it's so important to surround ourselves with great support.

I always tell people to treat themselves like they would a best friend. We often degrade ourselves in a way that we would never do to our friends.

Thanks for putting up this inspirational quote.

Today I said 'thank you' to a woman who moved her bag so I could get off the train without having to clamber over her. I don't normally say anything (because it's quite frankly unreasonable of her to have a suitcase on the train at rush hour) but I thought I would try it out. Unfortunately I underestimated the volume of my voice and accidentally bellowed my thanks in her face, scaring her more than anything. But it's a start - soon I'll have this being nice thing down to a tee. It is a great feeling when someone says something nice to you, and I'll remember the quote for the next time I'm in a mood!
