#13 - chaaaaaaleeeeenge. so today i'm going to tell people what i think about them. and i don't mean "you're fat, ugly, and i hate you" who wants to hear that? who wants to say that? what i mean is, if you have an amazing best friend who you just love, tell him/her that you really appreciate their company, their smile, their advice. tell them what you think. be grateful and polite. it makes you realize how much you love them. :) i'm planning on telling my dad, my mom, my little circle of friends, (including Aubs. my bestie) and of course, Jordan. but you don't have to stop there, if there's an inspiring teacher and you just love going to his/her class, tell them why you love their class and how much you appreciate the way they teach. some people may not realize how much you look up to them. if some random person in your class is a good example to you and to others, tell him/her that you appreciate the way they treat others or whatever. :) it's really nice to do and it feels great. win win! (and who doesn't like a win win!?!) i know this is cliche (the dreaded word...) and that you knew i was going to do this... but i couldn't help myself :) "say what you need to say" by john mayer-
Have no fear for givin' in
Have no fear for givin' over
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much (unless you're doing challenge 12)
\Than to never to say what you need to say again
Even if your hands are shakin'
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closin'
Do it with a heart wide open
Say what you need to say
well, i wrote a letter to Jordan. it was nice to just say what i really felt. and none of it was pessimistic or in bad taste. i told Erin Orchard that she is positively adorable (and she is) and i told my best friend that she is my best friend and why she is my best friend. it can seem embarrassing to tell people what you think about them and to put your heart out there like that. word to the wise: don't do what i did! i used indirect means to tell these people what they mean to me. it is most meaningful and sincere when you talk face-to-face. i think this world is so connected, we are becoming disconnected personally. so, say what you need to say, but say it personally. and besides, if you're telling a hot guy what he means to you, wouldn't that be so much better if you could have an excuse to talk to his attractive face?
