A whole year has gone by and it’s March 1st again. I want to wish you a happy World Compliment Day.
Our friend, Hans Poortvliet, from the Netherlands, helped create this special day. He wanted to build awareness of the importance of complimenting people. That was 16 years ago when he started National Compliment Day. Now, the concept has spread so fast it has become an international event just a few years later.
A compliment, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is simply “a polite expression of praise or admiration.”
A compliment might also include a personal commendation, or even a formal act or demonstration of civility, respect, or regard for someone. (more…)
Well, here it is again!
March 1st is World Compliment Day – a simple reminder on the calendar to encourage you and I to be more mindful of giving people compliments.
Mark Twain made the act of giving compliments famous when he said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.”
Yet many of us need more than a calendar reminder or a quote from a writer and humorist to spur us on with compliment giving.
With so many great things going on and so many wonderful people to learn from, live and love, you would think we all would be full of compliments.
Seems this is not always the case though. So I am going to help you discover how you can be full of compliments to hand out as needed. (more…)
You have probably heard someone talking about “paying someone a compliment” or being “paid a compliment.”
The funny thing is you don’t actually pay anyone anything. No money or goods are ever exchanged.
You don’t ever pay someone a compliment; you give it freely with no expectation of anything in return. (more…)
