A genuine compliment is one of the best things in the world, they make you feel loved and happy and special all at once. They come when you least expect it, a beautiful surprise. A compliment is powerful, because you connect with another human, you let them know you appreciate them in your life.
Just a few words like...
"Your hair is gorgeous,"
"Your smile is beautiful,"
"I think you're such a nice person,"
"I like your outfit,"
"Thank you for being a great friend"
"You're so skinny,"
can save someone's life.
Compliments cut straight through me...and go right to my heart, they really do. It makes my day, even my week sometimes. So today, give one genuine compliment to someone. Spread the happiness, I'm sure they will return the nice gesture one day. :)
Comment on this post and you get a free, genuine compliment. I'll look through your blog or profile and give you an honest compliment, because you all deserve one. :)
Alex- Everything's alright in my neighborhood, I'm very thankful. I also have a suspicion some of those pictures may be altered. I agree, I've never personally experienced too much of a "good thing." I can never have enough good grades, money, friends, love, or happiness. Thanks for the comment!
GraceyJ- I'm envious of your height! 110 lbs sounds like a perfect weight for you! Thanks for commenting!
SimplyHeather- Thanks for the concern, most people are doing fine. :) Natural disasters are terrible. Thanks for commenting!
Nikki- Welcome new follower! :) You're right, I also think there's a difference between thin and sick. Thanks for commenting!
time to pretend- I agree, I also have no desire to look like a complete skeleton. Wow what a coincidence! I wonder if I know you in real life! I hope everything's okay in your neighborhood and that nothing was damaged at your house. The tornado was awful, just terrible. But it did bring out the good in many people and I'm happy that we're all helping each other. Thanks for the comment!
Caro- I absolutely love "Savior" too! I love many of their songs, "The Strength to Go on", "Good Left Undone", and much, much more. I'll listen to Bright Eyes, I like listening to new bands. Thanks for the comment!
an<3nym<3us- I can relate to how goal weights get lower and lower. I used to want 105 lbs, then 100 lbs, and now it's 95 lbs. Thanks for the concern, my neighborhood is fine. :) Thanks for the comment!
Skinny_legs- I am completely terrified of growing hair (lanugo, or something like that?). I love what you said, "Thinner is better". Better too thin, than too fat! You were actually outside during a tornado?! You must be very brave, I'm glad you're okay! Thanks for commmenting!
Little Jo- Yup, looking ill isn't that great. I think it'll be hard to know when to stop. Thanks for commenting!
nymph- You're almost there! :) I wonder who invented BMI, and if it's really reliable. Thanks for your comment!
Jumped on the scale today... The needle hoovers between 104 and 105. I estimate 104.5 pounds. 9.5 more until my goal. Let's do this.
