So today is World Compliment Day. Actually I had no idea about a day being
celebrated for compliments until Google now reminded me and I came across this
post by Vidya. There is no dearth of special
days these days actually. Well as long as it’s good (specially when people give
compliments) who wants to complain.
I was on a long break from
blogging, health was particularly bad and then I just wanted to take some time
just for myself, but now I think to divert my mind and keep my ever rising
pulse rate normal the best thing I can do is write, write as much as I want to.
What say? Hope it helps.
So what do you do on World Compliment
Day? Go out give random compliments to whoever you meet? Or should I keep this
one day only for complimenting someone? As a matter of fact I am quite a
compassionate person and if you have done something good I’ll be the first one
to thank you or wish you, that comes naturally to me.
When compliments or a little word
or two is heartfelt it is always special and meaningful than posting posts
after posts on FB. Yeah sometimes people do it, write a poem or some quote for
their boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife on FB and the next day you see relation
status – it’s complicated!! Isn’t that like really over the top and meaningless?
Some little things like telling the shop
keeper a Thank You when he gives you change or the delivery boy a courtesy
thanks do matter. If not for you it works for them at least.
Since it being the first of the
month I had to give out salaries for my house help lady and my cook. I have noticed
when you give the salary with a smile and tell things like ‘ohh that day the fish you made was good’ or ‘you have cleaned the kitchen very well’ it brings a little smile
on their faces. And I did exactly the same. And it’s not that I want to keep
them happy because I need them to work for me, sometimes just general wishing
Sometimes you are really
surprised when you get compliments from sources which you do not expect. How
many times have you got a compliment from doctor or a health practitioner you
are visiting? The other day when I visited the doctor she was kind and gentle
and told me ‘you are doing pretty good, I
am very happy that you are doing all that I asked and doing them good’. Now
doesn’t that make you feel nice? I like these sort of things, makes life easier
even if that is for some moments!!
I have not been blogging since
end of December but I noticed the readership or the stats of visitors have not
gone down. So a big heartfelt Thank You to all the kind souls for visiting my
blog and liking what I write.
If you want
you can compliment me too, I will accept with a wide grin! Go ahead and comment
a thing or two.
For Everyone who comments below and gives me a compliment!
