The Love Box.

Is soooo cheesy.

But makes me feel soooooo good!

So, in Relief Society(womens organization in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) we have a box called the love box. Girls can write 'love notes' to other girls in our ward who they're maybe shy to talk to, or whatever. I went on a love box strike for about a year. I got some hate mail-seriously. Who gets hate mail in the love box? Oh ya. ME! Ugh. Some people know about it, others don't. So, I would always get love notes

"I absoutely love your hair"
"Your eyes are stunning"
"loved your dress today"
"your lesson/talk was amazing, you're so cool"

But I just didn't care. I kind of knew all of these things already. I'm stuck up. I know. Don't judge me.

Saturday night at an activity a girl in my ward came up to me and told me that my butt was looking super cute. Ha. YAY. Who doesn't love being told their butt looks amazing in their jeans? Cause I loved it.

Anyways, I came off my love box hiatus and wrote her a little note of her own yesterday. Lo, and behold I felt sooo good giving a compliment. I never realized how many times I recieve compliments and just never give them back. So, I'm vowing to give more compliments to people. I feel good getting them, and giving them.

Okay, everyone your goal is to give 3 compliments tomorrow. Can you do it?

Also, I decided I love smiling at random people. The reactions you get are hiliarous. Some people smile back, other people are so shocked they give you dirty looks. How sad is that. So. SMILE at everyone.

A smile can change the world.
