Compliment a complete stranger
Not quite a simple as it sounds.... least for me. Is it because I am running everywhere I go, and strangers are usually a blur as I go by? Or am I wrapped up in my own little world (sometimes its crazy here, but I know everybody :), that I am oblivious to other people? That makes me sound very self absorbed, but that is not it at all.

Sometimes I think the small insecurites inside me think that no one is really interested in what I have to say…I am invisible as I walk through the grocery store….although I know neither of those is really true…

I will do this sometime this weekend, because I know it will make someones day. It always makes my day to be complimented by a stranger.

not everybody is ready to receive a compliment from a stranger

Before you compliment somebody, you should understand if they will apreciate it or not. A lot of people don’t trust others easy, so hearing something nice without knowing you and without asking for it, they could get in a wrong way.

It’s hard to say how to feel if it’s appropriate to do it, that’s it, you just feel it! From a look, from the way the speak, the way they express themselves… It feels great to do it (and to receive it) and think that you might have made their day a bit brighter :)

Smiling to myself today... has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.
