Be a superhero and say something nice

imagesI’ve been having a rough go of it lately.

I either want to stay in bed with the covers pulled up over my head, or I want to run through the streets in my flannel-lined cape punching bad guys in the face and saving the world. Biff! Pow!

Then out of the blue, two people sent me e-mails and told me they had been impacted in a positive way by things I had written.

And I felt better. Calmer. A little bit like a superhero with a magic pen making the world a better place in a different way.

So, my posse of wonderful, beautiful people, here’s your challenge for the week:

Reach out to one person and say something nice about him or her. You can do it in person or via e-mail or text, if you’re a giant introvert like me.

We can all use a boost these days. And kindness is infectious.

You’ll feel like a superhero and so will the person you’ve bestowed a nicety upon.

What are you waiting for?

Up, up and away …

To the Batmobile …

Flannel Files Powers activate …

What did you say? How did it go? Tell us about it.

  1. Putting my cape on now. I think I’ll start at home. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your magic pen.

  2. Yo! Dude! This one’s for you: Yesterday I offered to help my therapist out by loaning your book to her. You know, so she would fall in love with it and buy it. I talked you and your book up so, that she said, “You made me feel like I know Rae. And I want to own this book! ” Pretty kewl, huh?

  3. I’ve been feeling down lately too, but I find that reaching out and saying nice things to people, even virtually, can make me feel better too. Plus, kind words really have the power to change someone else’s day. This is especially important when we’re living in a world filled with hate. Thanks for sharing and I hope things look up for you soon.

  4. This is always a great idea…Every month, every week, every day.
