Hola to all my readers! Yesterday, I assisted a training session on Motivation and Empowerment given by SCORP (Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace). We watched a short video: The Validation. It’s a heartwarming short video about a park attendant who considers it is his job to do more than validate parking. He wants to validate the customers themselves, delivering compliments about their appearances and the inner qualities behind them. He tells every client: You are amazing! You are great! You have a wonderful smile! Everyone who comes up to him with a ticket walks away validated as a worthwhile human being. From this video, I learnt that by giving each other a simple compliment, a little head up, a warm smile; you could make someone’s day and make them feel great about themselves. Sometimes, when you feel down and feel unsatisfied with your life or if you feel your life is not worth living, try to look on the positive sides of things and be grateful for what you have and for those kind people around you. So dear readers, please from now on, smile at your neighbours, compliment your friends and a family and feel great about yourself. Everyone is amazing and everyone deserves to be encouraged!
