How often do you pass strangers on the street and think nice things about them (Oh, I really like those shoes! or What a great smile. or I wish I could rock a mohawk like that.) … and then never ever, ever, ever tell them?
All the time? Me too.
Why do we do that?!
According to Happify:
Compliments don’t just make others feel great. They also enhance our own self-confidence. Giving a genuine compliment requires us to look for the good in others. In doing so, we also start to see the good in ourselves. We realize that we are all on the same journey together and that each of us has value to share with the world.
Being a source of positivity and happiness in the lives of others not only makes them feel great, it makes us feel great. And in a time of STUCK … we need all the great we can get.
Today I challenge you to start seeing the good in yourself by finding the good in others. I challenge you to smile genuinely and say those nice things.
GIVE A RANDOM PERSON A GENUINE COMPLIMENT.
Love + Hugs,
