Compliment people today (and every day)

How good does it feel when receiving a compliment?

I love it. With the especially great or random compliments, I even like to jot them down in my journal. For instance, a few months ago I was working out on the elliptical at the gym, I answered a phone call from just_kelly. We chatted for a couple of minutes before wrapping it up. After I hung up, the guy on the machine next to me said, "You have a very happy voice." This made my day!

Then there was the random exchange with the cashier about how much he liked the scent of my perfume, Burberry's The Beat. That was nice to hear as well.

So in an effort to make the world a little bit of a happier place to live, I do my best to compliment people. The people we compliment may be friends, family, co-workers, or strangers and we may compliment them at work, on the street, or in our own homes. The reason may be something as simple as admiring a person's manicure or as all-encompassing as thanking someone for all the support they have given as a friend.

It gives the warm fuzzies and lets people know they are appreciated. So, compliment people!
