Have you ever encountered someone and wanted to share a compliment? Hey Nice Bag! Or oooh, I just love your shoes! Those are always nice to hear right?! But what if someone shared something even more sincere and meaningful? I've come across some different scenarios where people have made observations about me and my children and I'll admit, they really made my day.
I'm certain its easy to compliment your family and friends, but when's the last time you've complimented a neighbor, your co-worker, or how about your boss? January 24th is Compliment Day, a day when your encouraged to share at least 5 (more if you so desire) sincere compliments with people your encounter everyday! Why? Just because! I keep thinking about the times when I've been complimented unexpectedly and more times than none, it put a smile on my face and I really need to hear it. We often find ourself doubting or giving ourselves negative self-talk and when someone reaches out and touches your heart by giving your darkness a sprinkling of sunshine, well it really can light up your world, even if it is only for that moment.
I'm going to challenge my family tomorrow to say something nice about one another by playing this game. I think its going to be fun for my children to hear what their siblings think of them, like about them, appreciate about them, because through all of the bickering and arguing, I think they tend to forget just how awesome they really are!
A Compliment Day Game:
- Gather in a circle.
- Look at the person to your left.
- Find a compliment for that person.
- Write the compliment on a piece of paper and who it is for.
- Gather the notes and post on a board.
- All players match each of the compliments to a player.
- The person with the most correct matches wins.
You can send free ecards to your family, friends, co-workers and more through 123greetings.com specifically for this day!
|Don't forget, light up someone's life, by sharing a little sunshine!|
Until next time,
