Bucket Drop Challenge

Saturday, April 02, 2011

This is a title of a book.."How full is your bucket?"

"We all have a bucket within us that needs to be filled with positive experiences, such as recognition or praise. When we're negative toward others, we use a dipper to remove from their buckets and diminish their positive outlook. When we treat others in a positive manner, we fill not only their buckets but ours as well."
(excerpt from Amazon.com)

Sooo, How full is your bucket? are you dipping from other buckets or filling their bucket? Remember, don't let anyone dip from your bucket? This means...don't let anyone steal your joy :)

I have a bucket challenge for you, its called Bucket Drops. Leave a nice note, text or e-mail (or a comment on a sparkpage) for someone, encouraging them, thanking them, or just letting them know how much you appreciate them.

Like stated above, we all have a bucket inside...are we allowing anyone to dip from our bucket or are we dipping from someone elses? Instead, how about filling someones bucket with a "Its great to see you" or "love your hair" comment? When we fill someone elses bucket we in turn are filling ours.

We are in control of our buckets. There are a lot of people in our lives that need their bucket filled.

So Go Start Bucket Dropping!!!! Be an inspiration to someone today, it'll make you feel great! Don't be a dipper, be a filler!!!
