Like other world, international or national days I’m always torn. On one hand I love the fact that there are days to make us stop and think, yet on the other hand, I do feel that we shouldn’t need reminding.
So I’m not going to over-analyze or over-think it. We have these days and so I’m going embrace World Compliment day and be POSITIVE! I love to give genuine compliments and make people feel good – it makes me feel warm to see pleasure in their eyes that a simple few words can bring. I love this quote from “The Little Things in Life”
We get so caught up in our lives that we forget the little ‘niceties’ and making others feel special. We all like to feel special – right? I don’t know anyone who deep down doesn’t like to receive a compliment, but there are many of us who don’t know how to ACCEPT one.
We need to learn how to accept a compliment with grace.
I’m afraid to say I’m one of those. Whenever, I’m complimented I either laugh it off or feel embarrassed or just don’t believe the person. Instead I should be graciously saying ‘thank you’. This is not always easy especially if we struggle with our own perception of self, body image and our looks.How many of us struggle with not believing we are good enough? Time to take action and start believing. Click To Tweet
Ask yourself the question:
Why would someone bother to compliment me?
Sure, there are those that have a ‘silver tongue’ but you can tell when someone is being genuine and it is time to start accepting compliments with grace. YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Don’t minimise and dismiss the gesture of a compliment and the spirit in which it is given. Make that other person feel valued.
So on this World Compliment Day don't just GIVE a COMPLIMENT WITH GRACE but ACCEPT a COMPLIMENT WITH GRACE!Click To Tweet
