National Compliment Day Is Today, January 24th!

 

Here I am again, with my annual reminder of National Compliment Day. I remind everyone of this day each year because I believe that every day should be a compliment day. Afterall, who doesn't love a compliment? I know I always appreciate receiving a compliment or two or three! So why not take time today to pay a compliment to anyone and everyone you meet? You'll not only make them feel good, you'll end up feeling good yourself! Be sure to be genuine when paying those compliments, otherwise it's pointless as people can tell if/when you're not being sincere and genuine!

 

 

"Sincerity is the highest compliment you can pay."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

 

Scientific studies have long shown that compliments are  great motivators and help to build self-esteen. One study  showed that people's performance improves when they are complimented. And according to Psychology Today, there is an art to both giving and receiving compliments. They define compliments as "little gifts of love!" It's also been said that "compliments are like verbal sunshine!"  Don't know about you, but I just love those definitions of compliments.

 

"Never underestimate the power of a random compliment."

Rocky Dickerson thank you, Rocky... and I remain "stunned" by your creativity... "sweating glitter" is a new term for me. How did you know I'm a fan of some glitz and glitter? (Tasteful, of course.)

Hello Nina - did I miss "Why, Mrs. Cleaver - that's a lovely dress you're wearing" given on more than one occasion by Eddie Haskell from the classic family-friendly television sitcom, Leave It To Beaver?  Nothing against Mr Haskell or his manners but being genuine counts for much when it comes to compliments.  In fact, it counts for a lot when it comes to many aspects of life.

Michael Jacobs good morning, Michael... those of us of a certain generation could never forget that Eddie Haskell line! Compliments without sincerity are useless, no doubt about it. But when they are genuine, they can totally make someone's day.

We went to Cape Cod last summer with my son and his two boys and my daughter and her beau - my son has already had COVID and my daughter has been very careful - we all got tested and stuck to ourselves.  I get up to NYC to see Alex and the boys occasionally too

Lise Howe for some reason, the two things I decided to do to stay safe is not travel and not eat at restaurants. As soon as I get my vaccination in March, I might rethink that.
