Do you remember the last time a stranger told you they liked your shoes? Or maybe complimented your hair?
Chances are, it made you feel immediately better about yourself. I know that when I receive a compliment, I can’t help but smile while saying thank you. Compliments put me in a great mood for the rest of the day. I obviously like the clothes I am wearing…after all I picked them out! Chances are, I am a fan of the way I styled my hair as well since that is the style I chose to go with. However, it is always so nice to hear that someone else appreciates it, too.
If you are in as good of a mood as I am after receiving a compliment from a stranger, then why not give them out more often? It doesn’t cost anything to give a compliment and it barely takes any time at all, yet it can make someone’s whole day so much better. So next time you are waiting in line at Starbucks or picking up your groceries, why not tell someone that they have a wonderful dress/head of hair/bowtie/sense of style/smile? It just might make them smile all day.
