Compliments are in short supply.
Because we grew up thinking that if the demand for compliments is higher than the supply, there is more value to the compliments. In other words, we think compliments mean less if give or receive them too often.
And so, compliments are part of our social currency. We have created a story that compliments are a form of power and that holding back compliments gives us more power, currency and value in our relationships.
What if we offered compliments everyday? How would that shift our relationships? Would it change the power dynamic? Would we eventually see that we are in this together instead of against each other and that there are more than enough compliments to go around?
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
