I received a compliment from a class mate this week . She told me that she was always impressed by the ideas I contribute to the class and thought that I was a unique and intellegent thinker. Speaking in that class makes me very nervous, and I am very self contious in my ability to communicate my thoughts clearly. So, perhaps she didn’t realize, but her compliment ment a lot to me. The same day I received two compliments on the dress I was wearing.
The fact that thesestrangers made a point to compliment me really had a positive impact on my day. I was smiling, feeling confident, and it also let me know I was surrounded by kind and friendly people.
This was my inspiration for “The Compliment Challenge”. I wanted to challenge people to make two complimants a day, one to a stranger and then a deeper compliment to someone known.
