Unexpected, No-Strings Attached Love

Most everyone appreciates a compliment, a word of encouragement, and a bit of recognition. I know, I do! Someone said something nice to me today and it made all the difference. (Thank you kind stranger!)  Positive and encouraging comments build confidence and self-esteem.

So, hey, why not? Say something nice to someone! It ain’t gonna’ cost you nothin’, and it’s relatively easy. And – extra bonus – as you look for the good in others, they will find the good in you.

“You will find what you look for: good or evil, problems or solutions.” ~ John Marks Templeton

Compliments are little offerings of unexpected, no-strings-attached love. They are not asked for; they are not required. They simply let a person know that you recognize their positive light and that they are worthy of notice.  If delivered well, a compliment can change the air from static to calm; from negative to positive.

Compliments send out a ripple of kindness. Not only does the recipient of the compliment feel good, so does the giver. Moods are boosted; positivity amplified.

Compliments land successfully only when sincere; when a true reflection of what we are thinking. Faux, syrupy, artificially sweetened compliments will backfire and the deliverer of said fake compliments will appear insincere and untrustworthy.

Be An Angel: Pile on the Praise
The best way to spread the complimentary word (NOT the icing) is to take a moment to notice what’s right and good in a person; something that you genuinely admire, and then find a way to let them know.

Here are some positive character traits that you might be on the look out for.

Kind – Fair – Helpful – Honest – Reliable – Friendly – Brave – Caring – Smart – Funny – Generous – Open minded – Loving – Warm – Positive – Peaceful – Creative – Witty – Cheerful – Flexible – Beautiful – Handsome – Sexy – Good Listener – Joy – Unique – Funny

And now practice giving compliments.

You are … fun.
You are … unique.
You are … loving.
I appreciate your ability to listen.
I appreciate your kindness.
You do ‘that’ so well.
You bring out the best in me.
You make me want to be a better person.

And when someone gives you a compliment, simply smile and say, “Thank you.”

Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    When my husband and I were donating our excess weight to the universe, we walked along the beach path in the OC (Calif.) nearly every day. One day, we were approached by this older man who looked like an original weight lifter from Venice/Muscle Beach. He asked if he could take a moment to talk to us. I thought he wanted to sell us something so I blew him off. My husband is WAY nicer and stopped to talk. The man introduced himself and said he was down at the beach every day and had watched us walk right out of our old bodies! OMG!!!! Are you friggin kidding me?! And I was gonna blow him off!! Turns out, he really is one of the old-timers from Venice/Muscle Beach. He’s trained some famous names there (Arnold and some of the TV wrestlers).

    His act of kindness absolutely made our week! And we have told this story about Muscle Bill on the beach probably 100 times. It took tons of courage to step out to us and provide those kind words. He is definately one of my angels on my path to a healthier life!
