- Complimenting people on the way they look is a very easy way to make them feel good. I have done this often this week and now it is becoming a habit (obviously I only do it if it is genuine!). It made me aware that I used to notice something nice about a person and not tell them. Very easy to change.
- As for 'being kind when in a bad mood'. Not sure how I went on that one...After a sleepless night with Scarlett I didn't wake up and make my man breakfast in bed or anything, but I did refrain from taking out my frustration on him. And I sent him a nice text. As a result, we didn't have a fight and I felt much better.
- A couple of days ago I went to a friend's house for coffee. She had just heard some bad news and I wanted to bring her a gift but couldn't think of anything (she's not eating treats). So I went with the intention of REALLY listening. Not sure how I went but I came away with a good feeling and I hope she did, too.
- I never wrote the letter but I did write some nice emails.
Today, I am trying to be kind to myself. The house is a mess and I'm having trouble with the day naps but Scarlett has been happily laughing outside, watching birds and saying dadadada in her cute voice. I must be doing something right.
