Leave an encouraging note on a mirror. Have you ever looked into the mirror and thought, "I am so ugly and worthless. How could anyone like me?" Chances are, you have. Self-confidence is a huge issue among young people, so that's what inspired today's challenge.
Write an encouraging note. It could be simple, like, "You are beautiful," or it could be a poem about beauty or a letter to your inner self. Use your creativity and writing skills here. After you've written your note, stick it on the mirror of a public bathroom, at your school, or on a mirror at a cosmetics store. You could even stick the note on your sister's mirror or a mirror of your friend with low self esteem. Stick the note wherever you feel that it is needed.
Someone may go up to the mirror today, thinking, "I'm worthless!" When they see your note, perhaps their confidence will rise.
I want to hear your stories! Leave me a comment and share what you did during today's challenge. If you have a picture already, feel free to send it to me. If you're blogging about today, send me the link and I'll feature it on this blog.
Stay tuned until later today to see what my friends and I did for today's act of kindness.
TOMORROW: Donate five dollars to a charity
I loved today's challenge. I made my encouraging note during Study Hall while I was at school. It wasn't super creative- I'm not very good at art, art- but I enjoyed thinking of something encouraging to say. You can see my note below.
I put my note right beside our bathroom mirror at my high school so that the girls could read it when they looked in the mirror and possibly felt bad about themselves. I like encouraging people. It makes me feel good too, to be honest.
Me: Ali, what did you do today?
Ali: I wrote an encouraging note for a younger girl that I know, and I just, I hope that she likes it- I don't know yet! But, you know, I always love receiving encouraging notes, so it always hopes me and I hope it kinda helps her, and it at least brings a smile to her!
Today's challenge has been one of the most fun so far, in my opinion.
