As you read in #1 it’s been a rollercoaster for me lately and Saturday was a rough day. I chose to slow down my life a bit, did a few activities I enjoy, took a nap and spent some time reading a great book. I made it through the day but was not on top of the world.
God knew I needed encouragement. First came a “Friendaversary” on Facebook. The message brought tears to my eyes. “I value our friendship more than words can express. I cannot thank you enough for your wisdom over the years and always lending an ear! I have always considered you a mentor of mine without putting it into words! Happy Friendaversary indeed!” Wow that hit the spot and brought a huge smile to my face and warmed my heart.
Then I headed to the city to shop for my Grandsons birthday and did a big grocery shop for an upcoming family trip to my Uncle’s cabin in the BC mountains. (My second fav place to visit) One of the stores I stopped in, the clerk gifted me with their love of my style. Suddenly I was on the way back up to the top, laughing and smiling.
So, whether it is “I love your outfit, you look amazing” or “I really appreciate how you really hear me and let me vent, you are a great listener” find a way to genuinely compliment those around you, because you never know when someone needs that boost back up.
And by the way, giving a compliment will give you a boost as well. The 15 Best Compliments You Could Ever Give/Receive – LifeHack
