Warm Fuzzy Wednesday

You get up in the morning and think to yourself, “I would love to dress up and do something out of the ordinary today!” After taking a shower, you spend way too much time picking out THE perfect outfit, throwing all the clothes that didn’t make the cut on the floor, and then move on to hair where you do something new and fun that you have always wanted to try. You look at yourself in the mirror, and of course, float out of the room because you feel amazing!

Walking into work is a joy today because some of your co-workers are complimenting your fun new look which feels great…until of course, that guy comes over and makes a comment on how your hair looks silly, or how they do not like the clothes you are wearing.

I am telling this story because this has happened to me and I know it has happened to others.

You try your hardest to not let it bother you because you know that when people are being mean it's usually because something isn't great in their own life... BUT there’s that one guy, the one that gets under your skin, pushes your buttons, and who always says things that make you second guess yourself constantly. This morning I was feeling so lovely, and then a few stupid comments about how I looked seriously ruined my whole day.

As much as anyone tries to not let negative comments or people bother them, sometimes it is impossible. So what I would like to propose for my new segment “Warm Fuzzy Wednesdays” is that we never say a negative comment about the way someone dresses or looks ever again. That we only compliment people when they look nice, and build them up instead of bringing them down. At one time, we have all felt the effects of negative and hurtful people, but let’s try our hardest not to make anyone feel the way we hate to feel ourselves.

“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” – Matt 22:37-40
