The Power of a Compliment

We had another wonderful Mums' Make Date this week, making Take a Compliment boxes. I've storified some of the chat below. Some wonderful boxes were made, heart-melting compliments shared, given and received. 

So what did we discover? We are loved. We are appreciated. That giving compliments feels amazing. Receiving them is tougher. 

We might be able to accept the odd compliment about our work, our children, our possessions, but something about ourselves...?

Will keeping a compliment box help us to believe it when someone says we're amazing? Or hardest of all to hear, beautiful?

I truly hope so. This Make Date was a joy to participate in, a veritable avalanche of compliments. Thank you so much, lovely mums for all you do. 

New mums are always welcome - come chat, come craft (or just chat...), come play. Join us on twitter using #somum from 8.30 - 10pm GMT on Wednesday 13 February.
