Day 161: Lovelight

In SARK’s Succulent Wild World, there is a thing called “being in the Lovelight.”  Each week someone is chosen by the current recipient and all of SWW heaps love, encouragement, and praise upon them.  The recipient of the Lovelight shares things with them about themselves, their life, their creative life, and whatever else comes to mind.  So we get to know each other very well.  And this week, I am the lucky Lovelight recipient and it has been truly awesome.  Everyone deserves to have this experience on a regular basis in their life.  Who doesn’t need to to be appreciated, loved, encouraged, and praised?  That’s one of the reasons that I like to give compliments to random strangers.  It literally takes only seconds to tell someone that you love their blouse, earrings, cologne, or how they wear their hair, etc…  I just enjoy doing it and seeing them smile.  It makes me feel good too so it’s a win-win kind of thing.  And it costs you nothing at all.  And, after working in retail when I was younger, I try to be respectful toward all customer service people like store clerks, fast food clerks and waiters/waitresses with whom I come into contact because I know how much crap they have to put up with from people.  In the past, if I was out on a date and they were rude to anyone that waited on us, I was done with them.  There wasn’t a second date because I think that kind of rudeness is very telling about someone and their true personality.  I mean, how hard is it to just be civil to someone?  Life’s hard enough, so just choose to be nice to people.  Or at least don’t go out of your way to be rude.  Just try.  It’s not that difficult.
