National Compliment Day is January 24th… did you know that? I love all these little holidays because they’re great reminders that we should celebrate everyday.
I plan to give out as may compliments that I possibly can!
Sit down and think about the last time you complimented someone. Your parents, your siblings, your spouse, your best friend… for me, it’s honestly been a while.
Here’s five simple ways you can celebrate National Compliment Day.
1.) Compliment Your Family Members
My family and I clash heads a lot but they each have qualities that I love about them. Take time out today to compliment each of your family members. Let your sister know she has great hair. Tell your brother he did a great job. Tell your cousins they are awesome. If you can’t see them in person, pull out your cell phone and text them or leave them a message on their Facebook profile.
2.) Compliment Your Friends
Call or text your best friend and remind them why you love them. Leave a compliment on your friends’ Facebook profile picture. If you bump into an old friend when you’re out and about, tell them how fabulous they look.
3.) Compliment Your Parents
They probably deserve compliments from you the most! Remind them that they are doing a great job. My mom has been struggling lately and I know that they simplest compliment is uplifting to her.
4.) Compliment A Stranger
This one may be a bit harder, but you never know what kind of day others are having. A simple “cool shirt” may turn someone’s day completely around. Compliment the mom in the grocery store. The teenager pumping gas. The cute little old lady having lunch at your favorite restaurant.
5.) Compliment Yourself
Trust me, you need it. You’re fabulous, you’re special and you deserve your own compliments. Instead of critiquing yourself in the mirror, tell yourself that you’re hot (even if your hair is up in a messy bun and your eyeliner is fading).
