Happy Compliment Day

24 Jan


Stop what you are doing right now! It’s time to express your gratitude to the most important people in your life. Give the gift of a sincere compliment.

Write down the names of five people who mean a lot to you.

Next to their name, write one of two qualities that they exhibit that make your life richer, better or simpler. Examples would be: Compassion, acceptance, dependability, diligence, hospitality, sincerity, wisdom.

Craft a sentence or two giving a specific and personal example of how that quality has impacted you and your future.

Here is an example of a gratitude statement (compliment) for my husband:

Rodney I am grateful for your compassion, dependability and diligence. When I am down you listen carefully and that is healing my heart. Your dependability and diligence to clean up my messes in the kitchen allow me to LOVE cooking and exploring healthy ways for us to eat AND save money. You are a gift to me!

Text these sentences, email them, direct message, or call the person with a sincere compliment.

Let me know how it goes or, better yet, send me a video of their reaction to a sincere, heart-felt compliment.
