You look really nice today...


I've been thinking a lot about compliments lately, and am racking my brain to remember this one great excerpt from a Chicken Soup for the Soul that talked about the impact of one small compliment.  With a new position at work that requires me to make sure that the company's best foot is always forward I'm trying to find the right way to require our employees to compliment a certain number of people a day.  I am desperately trying to find a concrete example or statistic to convey the impact of a kind word or smile.

Think about it, when was the last time you felt a little down-in-the-dumps about yourself and a stranger complimented you about your hair/outfit/smile etc.  Those few kind words from someone you don't know can mean more than months of compliments from someone you do know.  

Not to say that you don't appreciate compliments from people you know and love, but it's certainly nice to get an unexpected acknowledgment once in a while.

If anyone out there has a good example from a book or a personal story please let me know...I would love to hear about it!

I hope everyone had a very happy Monday!
