2018 Week 44: I Like Your _____

download (1)

Week 44’s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is “I Like Your ________.”

This is the season of giving.

give–a verb:

–to freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); hand over to

Many times people will compliment something on your person as a way to connect or just express their liking of something you have on.
“I like your _( scarf, shoes, sweater, coat, tie, necklace, watch, purse, etc.).”

This week’s task is to GIVE something to the next person who gives you a compliment.

Here is the real challenge, give that person the actual thing they compliment you about.

Do this for just ONE, the NEXT, person who gives you a compliment about something you have on.

If someone compliments you on your scarf, give them your scarf.

(Of course, be reasonable.  I’m not sure you want to give someone your dress or pants unless you have another handy to put on.)

Sometimes someone will express a liking of your hair, smile,or sense of humor. These would be hard to GIVE away, so have something ready to give instead.
Maybe…
  • a compliment…which means you need to be ready at any moment to give a true compliment back to people you are interacting with,
  • a hug,
  • a pack of gum,
  • a gift card?

Take note how hard this might be for you to give up something you possess.

Maybe giving compliments to another is harder than giving up your watch.

Maybe giving a hug is even harder than giving a gift card.

Have fun with this.

Practice awareness.

Practice giving.

Practice letting go.

Feel free to share in the comments what you gave away and how it felt.

Cheering You on to a Whole Giving Heart,

Barbara
