Encouraging a Stranger (Today’s Simple Pleasure)

“If you’re reading this, you are an awesome person!” isn’t really my style. I attempted to satisfy today’s simple pleasure through my use of social media, by writing positive comments on posts I read, but I felt very unfulfilled in doing so. I struggle to be uplifting and kind at times, and I think attempting to be nice to others in a way that feels forced is especially doomed. So, instead, I plan to look for ways to brighten someone’s day in the next week that arise naturally and feel on target. Who was the last person you encouraged? How did they respond?

  1. A simple nod and smile get to most people. You never know what someone could be going through during the gloomy days we all despise.

    I tend to bring my best self when I go out socially and be approachable to most people, this is my way of giving back even though I may be dealing with problems of my own.

    Have a great weekend!
    Will
