Happy National Compliment Day …..Gorgeous
This day was created in 1998 by Kathy Chamberlin, of Hopkinton, NH and Debby Hoffman, of Concord, NH.
Do you know what the best feeling is in the world? (other than shopping!) … its making someone else happy! So what a wonderful way to brighten up your own day, by making someone else feel totally awesome with a compliment from you?
Give a extra compliment on National Compliment Day which is observed annually on January 24.
A compliment has a powerful effect. It can instill confidence in a child, or validate someone’s hard work. A compliment not only improves the receiver’s mood, but it also says something about the giver. It says you noticed. Whether we acknowledge someone’s achievements, or their fashion sense, hair style…… a compliment can go a very long way.
Ok so first things first – HOW do you give a great compliment? First of all you need to be sincere (go on, we can all do it & people have a way of knowing when we are being fake) If you don’t mean it, it’s worse than getting a thoughtless birthday gift & can come across as sarcasm!
Complimenting someone’s character Vs a new haircut are different rewards. The first says you respect the person and the other says that you have noticed them. Sometimes the receiver needs to hear one or the other, or both.
Human beings like to be unique, original. Strive to compliment what makes a person stand out above the rest. Take the time to reflect on what you admire about the person.
Make sure to compliment someone and use #NationalComplimentDay to post on social media.
So go on guys, share the love, make someone feel great today!
Have fun xxxx
