Awesome Day 11 - Today is the Day to Pay Someone a Compliment

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

I just saw Nina Hollander 's post, It's National Compliment Day: Everyone Loves A Compliment! I Know I Do!  As Nina writes in her post, scientific studies have long shown that compliments are  great motivators and help to build self-esteen. One study showed that people's performances improved with compliments.  Pyschology today defines compliments as "little gifts of love!" It's also been said that "compliments are like verbal sunshine!" 

I noticed that several of the compliments had to do with awesomeness!

You're always learning new things and trying to better yourself, which is awesome.

In high school I bet you were voted "most likely to keep being awesome."
 

Imagine what the world would be like if we considered every day and every person to be awesome and we acted accordingly and took the time to tell them exactly what we felt.  These compliments are from a website called happier.com.  Nina's post had a hundred awesome compliments from there  - you should stop by and pick out a few to try on your colleagues, friends and family.   Definitely use a few compliments today but maybe keep trying to find the awesome in others tomorrow too! and share the good vibes!

HI Lise Howe

There is nothing like putting a smile on the face of someone.  It is so easy to say something thoughtful and your post proves it. Have a great weekend.

Hi Lise- I love Nina Hollander's post. Wouldn't it be nice if we all made more of an effort to compliment those we interact with?  Even saying one little sentence, said in earnest, and offered with a smile can make someone's day.

Kathy Streib - I agree completely - I bookmarked Nina's post - and used one of the compliments to send to my daughter - just because! 

and oh - by the way - I am sure you were voted the most awesome in your high school class!

Sheila Anderson - Maybe Nina Hollander has started something!  How are the puppies? My Arthur ate a box of raisins yesterday - a quick trip to the vet to get the medicine to make him throw up - some fluids and blood work - and I am hoping he is going to be okay- it is always something!   If he continues to urinate well tomorrow I think we are out of the woods -

George Souto - we are all so busy chasing something or other that we don't take the time to breathe and reach out to each other - a few words of kindness really can change someone's day

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® - I bookmarked Nina's post just to get some new ideas of random acts of kindness in the way of a compliment!  It is fun for us to be kind to other people

Nina Hollander - your post fit so perfectly with my effort to find something awesome about each day - it is kind of like gratitude journals but with a different focus

Grant Schneider - you are so right - I think it is important to deliver criticism with a word of kindness or a compliment so that the person has a better chance of understanding that you are coming from contribution - not negativity - if you didn't care you wouldn't bother to offer constructive guidance

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD = when you think that you can give someone such a gift by paying them a compliment - and that it might truly change their outlook for a whole day - and it doesn't cost you anything - why don't we pay more compliments

Sheila Anderson - we seem to be doing okay - I was out all day and so I think I will take Arthur back tomorrow to get his blood work done - he is urinating on a regular basis though so I think his kidneys are going to be okay - thank heavens!!!  I don't want to think of the possibility of losing hims so soon after losing Poirot - but you know how that is.  Hugs to you and your babies
