Okay, Day 27's post is going to be short, sweet, and to the point. Just like a compliment.
Do you remember the last time you got an out-of-the-blue compliment from someone?
If you answered yes, then remember how that made you feel? Wouldn't you like to do that for somebody else?
If you answered no, then don't despair! Once you start complimenting other people, you start to feel better about yourself (funny how that works), which leads to you carrying yourself a little straighter, smiling a little more, and before you know it, BAM! somebody hits you with a compliment.
It's really a very simple concept. You can start small; just dole out one compliment a day.
I see a ton of the same customers on a regular basis, so I can tell when it looks like somebody took a little extra effort to look and feel nice. And I'll make sure to let them know it worked with a simple,
"That scarf looks great on you!"
"What a pretty haristyle!"
"I love the colour of your sweater!"
You get the idea. You don't have lie or rave about how gorgeous they are or say anything you are uncomfortable with; just give them something little. Because trust me, it won't feel so little to them.
So, today when you are out and about and off your duff, throw a few compliments around! It'll make both you and the recipient feel great about yourselves.
