Remember when in December we did this little fun challenge of making someone's day by randomly smiling on strangers or paying a little compliment to another woman? I got tons of email from you saying how much you loved taking part. So you can imagine by excitement when I spotted an article with Diane von Furstenberg where she talked about her little morning ritual involving making someone's morning a bit more special.
Her way of starting a day on a great note is by making sure to send one email that doesn't benefit her at all. She explains that this email could be an introduction of an artist to a potential patron, or anything else that gives a compliment to the person on the receiving end. She does that first thing in the morning to always start her day on a positive note. I love that!
Are you game to do the same till the end of August? I am:) But the one and only rule is that no matter what the compliment email is, it has to be 100% sincere. If it’s not, the other person will know it right away.
Darlings, are you game? Wanna join in?
P.S: More morning rituals and my little festive secret.
P.P.S: Plus, on being fully present in the moment.
