Say Something Nice Day...It’s Good for You!

 

If you think about it, saying something nice to someone sounds very simple...a no-brainer. However, I think whoever created this day meant for what you say to be sincere and well thought out. 

 

Take just a moment to think about the last time someone said something nice about you...paid you a compliment. It might have been in person or on social media. 

 

We’re all human and when someone says something nice about us and means it, then we can’t help but feel good...we get a nice warm smile on the inside. 

 

We remember that person and in fact, a particular bond is created. 

 

When we attempt to say something nice about someone, it requires us to seriously look at that person and find a positive trait about them. And we all know what good comes from searching for the positive!

 

 

When someone pays me a compliment or says something nice, I feel obligated to live up to it, don’t you? 

 

And, just for grins...what nice thing do you think your friend or co-worker would say about you??




Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

This is something I strive to do a lot in my life.  The kind words of others lifted me up when I was in a bad place decades ago.  Will never forget the power of a few kind words.

Bill Salvatore - YVP Blog sometimes we're so caught up in our own lives ...we forget that one small gesture like saying something nice to someone could have a big impact. 

Brian England you're right...most of us have learned to see through that. When we do say something to someone, we also feel good!

Nina Hollander, Broker oh yes, I have been known to have to bite my tongue sometimes. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel that is a favorite quote of mine. And you make an excellent point...saying nice things to other people is a reflection of how you treat yourselves.
