A few years ago someone once told me that she thought I was fierce and admired that quality in me.
I was flabbergasted because I’ve always thought of myself as more of a fearful person.
I walked around for the next few days trying on that description for me, pondering what a fierce person is and what she acts like. I tried to figure who I knew or admired that was also fierce and I even looked the definition up! I decided I liked that quality and wanted to be more like that.
It’s crazy to think that in the thousands of seconds that have passed since those words were said AND all the other words I’ve heard since... those remain with me.
They stuck!! They were [[sticky words!]]
So lately & for today’s #PardonMyPositivity post.. of course 🙃.. I’ve been thinking about the power of our words that we speak into each other.
Fact 1: It takes less than two seconds to compliment someone.
Fact 2: A two second compliment can last a lifetime. 🙌🏽
The words that come out of our mouths have power to BE the fuel of dreams, hope, and ideas!
🐝 BE someone’s strength.
🐝 BE their inspiration.
🐝 BE there encouragement.
🐝 BE their sunshine!
and most importantly...
BE the type of energy that no matter where you go, you always add value to the spaces & lives around you.
Before you go, do you have any sticky compliments like mine? I’d love to know!!!
