Compliments

Think about the last time you received a compliment from a friend or loved one. How did it make you feel? Were you flattered? Did you believe it? Or did you think they were just being nice? Now, think of the last time you received a compliment from a stranger? How satisfying was it knowing that guy at the gas station thought your shoes were cool (they totally were)? Simple acts of kindness such as a compliment or wishing someone a nice day seem to feel more satisfying when they seem genuine. With that in mind, why not make someone else’s day? It could be telling a friend how much you appreciate them, complimenting your partner on one of their many amazing qualities, or telling someone on the bus you like their outfit.
