Believe it or not, yesterday was National Compliment Someone Day. According to what I’ve read, the idea is to say something nice about at least 5 people. You can find more information here
A compliment is a simple way to bring a bit of happy to someone else. However, when you lift someone’s spirit, you’re enriching your spirit as well. Who knows? You may be the one positive voice that makes a difference in a friend's, family member's, coworker's or stranger's day!
Why should it be a one-day event? Let's uplift and encourage purposely the whole weekend! Don’t stop at 5!
Feel free to share your experience. I’ll be sure to post about my “compliment spree” as well.
It was a great weekend and a wonderful week of spreading encouragement! You really do feel little warm fuzzies as you see a smile spread across someone's face or witness a spark of confidence.
When I was in grad school, I remember hearing a quote--"Be the person you wish you knew as a child." These words helped change my perspective and influenced the type of counselor I wanted to be--one who encouraged and empowered people to reach their full potential.
