The Longevity of a Compliment

Have you ever noticed the smile on someone’s face when you give them a genuine compliment?  A kind word costs nothing.  The compliment may come from someone you have never met but it still holds its value.   When someone takes the time out to recognize you, the dynamic of your day is likely to change.

A genuine compliment is not meant for the sake of flattering.  It is the behavior of recognition and appreciation.  It is why I have an award section of my blog.  It is a simple and relatively discreet way of showing how lucky and blessed I feel to have such outstanding relationships with people.

The fine line of flattery is a dangerous walk.  If your recognition is not sincere you are risking your credibility.  On the other hand, I notice sometimes that people have trouble accepting compliments too.  They often resort to self-deprication, which makes them appear insecure and low self-esteemed.   It makes me realize how  foreign a compliment can be to someone.

I think sometimes its easy to get so wrapped up in our own lives that we forget how simple and easy it can be to encourage and put a smile on someone’s face

Neurally yours,
