A compliment only takes a moment, but can make someone’s day. Sometimes it can be as simple as noticing that someone has a new haircut. Or it can be more in-depth — letting someone know that their welcoming personality made you feel at ease with a new group of people. It doesn’t cost anything but a few moments of your time.
It has made a HUGE difference in my life to GIVE compliments to others. Not only do I feel good personally, but I can see in that person’s reaction that they feel good. A GENUINE compliment can remind someone that you “see” them. Of course you can see others with your eyes — but to REALLY see someone — is to let them know that they mattered to you – even for a moment. It is an amazing gift that you have the power to share.
We are all travelers on a journey each day. Navigating our way with others who are dealing with things that may be difficult and painful. Be that bright spot that gave them hope in humanity.
