Good morning, friends! TGIF – am I right?
Since it’s Friday and we’re all (hopefully) happy about that, I thought it might be fun to talk about compliments today.
I feel like truthful compliments are hard to come by these days, ESPECIALLY on the internet. Have you ever read some of the comments on YouTube videos or Instagram? People can be mean behind the computer screen! (I’m a poet and I didn’t even know it.) So when you receive a genuine compliment, it’s definitely a breath of fresh air.
That happened to me last night at my event. One of my colleagues that I don’t work with very often was observing me while I was greeting guests. She told me that she was watching me and that I have a “warm and inviting smile that makes everyone feel welcome.” I was totally taken back by such a genuine compliment!
I mean, I’ve had people tell me that my smile is pretty before. Or that my hair looks nice. Or that I look like I’ve lost weight. And those are ALL super sweet and nice compliments. But to have someone observe you and give you a true, true compliment – well, it’s just something I’ll remember for awhile. And honestly, it made me feel really good about myself!
Have you ever had someone give you a genuine compliment – one that they truly thought about for a bit – and it changed your perspective on things? Let me tell you, after receiving a compliment like that and feeling so happy afterwards, I’m definitely going to be handing out more compliments to others around me.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I have a fun one – getting my hair done tonight and then an event tomorrow. Tell me a compliment you’ve received or given below 🙂
