10 Things That People Love About You

10 Things That People Love About You

It’s about time you stop putting yourself down! Each and every one of us was put on this earth to impart our wisdom to the world. We have so much to teach everyone we meet, directly and indirectly. You have value and you are valued.

What are 10 things that people love about you? We are pretty sure the following make it on to the list:

1. Your Courage

Think of all the hardships you’ve been through. How else do you think you got through the tough times? It certainly wasn’t because you got scared and buried your head in the sand.

And yes, it certainly wasn’t fun to, say, go through unemployment or even a family loss, but think of how others looked up to you when you braved the stormy seas. Whether you realize it or not, you probably encouraged many others to become more courageous, just like you.

Being courageous also means taking risks. Think that what you’ve done so far in life isn’t risky? Recall those times when you hopped on a plane to go on vacation to Thailand or other places where English isn’t the first language. Many people would be terrified to do something like that.

2. Your Energy

You work harder and give your time to those you love a lot. Don’t even try to dispute that because you know it’s true! You’ve got so much enthusiasm that people feel more energetic just by being around you. The way you talk, the way you walk, it’s just so electrifying!

3. Your Ability to Love

Your friends and family are around for a reason. You obviously bring a smile to their faces and value their time. The care and attention that you bring to each and every one of your relationships is one of the many reasons why people love you. Don’t believe it? Go through every single email your friends and family have written you. How many thank-yous do you notice? Better yet, do you have any handwritten cards or thank-you notes people have sent to you that you’ve kept? Obviously, the way you show love to others has made a bigger impact than you thought.

4. Your Passion

The way you dedicate yourself to your job, or even your hobbies, shows others the amount of passion you have. You are probably passionate about helping others because people love to be around you. People can’t help but admire the way you talk about the love of your life, the latest charity event you went to, or even the way you describe the oh-so-perfect photo you took of that sunrise last week.

5. Your Sense of Humor

Everybody loves a good laugh. Perhaps you are the life of the party, telling fresh and witty jokes at every turn. Or perhaps you like to tell embarrassing stories about yourself, when people hang on to your every word. That means you have a great sense of humor. People love people who don’t take themselves too seriously.

6. Your Creativity

People love problem solvers. You love to fix issues at your job: that’s creativity at work. Love painting and photography? People admire artists. So, who cares if it doesn’t make money? Keep doing what you’re doing, Picasso!

7. Your Positivity

Nobody knows how to put a positive spin on things like you do. Whereas many people concentrate on the problems at hand, you look towards coming up with solutions. While some people complain when they get a cold meal, you are thankful that you are able to eat at such a lovely restaurant. Go on Buddha, spread the love!

8. Your Looks

Hey, let’s get real—you’re a good-looking person. So why shouldn’t people stop and stare every once in a while? Heck, you might even be the sharpest dresser at work. Move over, GQ and Victoria’s Secret models.

9. Your Smile

As if you aren’t good-looking enough already, you’ve got a dazzling smile. Carry on being so awesome…

10. Your Listening Skills

People love to be heard. Surely there have been times where people have turned to you for advice or even a shoulder to cry on. Why do you think they keep coming back again and again?

Only a special person like you is able to master the skill of listening. You really take the time to look at them, be in the present moment, and pause before you answer.

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
