When was the last time you made someone smile?
I told a young woman in the hairdressers' today that I liked her eyelashes, they looked pretty. It was true. They did. Her face lit up and I thought to myself - I really should do this more often
I work in a grocery store to stay busy. The work is simple. I say hello to everyone, I compliment hair-dos, shoes, pretty tops, babys, beards, funny t-shirts, lost weight, cars, food choices, eyes, suits, whatever I can to make their day lighter, let them know I noticed,that they mean something. I joke with them always to get a smile. I feel really good about it
I’m a big believer in doing this! A compliment costs nothing, and there is something positive to be found in most people. I especially like asking to speak to a manager in businesses I patronize to point out good performance by an employee. They never expect it!
Yup. I will compliment just about anyone, frequently. It is pretty easy to find something you can sincerely compliment another human on. Their turn of phrase, choice in eye glasses, a witty remark, pretty car color choice, I try to compliment things that were within their scope of control. So I try to avoid things that are just theirs by birth.
