If you haven't noticed already,
every Friday I link up with The Shine Project
for the challenge that Ashley gives us.
These challenges lift and inspire me and help me to become better.
They help me to become my BEST SELF!
This week the challenge was to try something new!
This week has been a whirlwind.
I have been super busy helping with Utah's Distinguished Young Women Program.
It has been busy but worth it in every single way.
I got the honor of talking to these girls (28 of them)
about service...it was a dream come true.
I talked to these girls about gratitude, love and making others feel important.
I gave each of them a heart stone and told them to keep it with
them at all times throughout this week.
I told them to put it in their shoe or in their back pocket...
just anywhere that would feel really uncomfortable.
Any time they feel the pain of the stone and are reminded
of this little heart, they are to stop what they are
doing that moment and either serve someone or thank someone.
A little bit after, one of the girls came up to me and thanked me for the stone.
She said...."It's so awesome, it's working".
I just smiled at her and said I am so glad.
I talked to these girls about gratitude and made them each some thank you cards
to carry with them everywhere they go.
This it where it relates to The Shine Project challenge.
I started carrying thank you notes with me this week every where I go.
I figured if I am challenging all these girls, I better challenge myself too.
So this week I really made an effort to thank others more.
Any time I get excellent service or just want to thank
someone for being nice, I hurry and take out my
thank you notes and I write a little note and I leave it with them.
Sometimes I even leave my business card with it.
It has really started to make a difference in my life and
has left me feeling happier and more fulfilled.
I am so glad I got to try this new process this week.
