Compliments are Contagious

"You are a joy to know."

"You are glowing, what's his name?" (HA! Not answering that one)

"You are a wonderful person."

"You can take those negative vibes and spit them back out positive. I know you can handle it."

"Your office is peaceful, I can feel it walking through the door." (Yep, you can't walk through my door with negative vibes)

In the last month or so, I have received these wonderful compliments listed above. Granted, I did not receive them all in the same day (I don't think my ego could've taken that) but I received them in the matter of a few weeks.

Receiving a great compliment is a wonderous thing. It surprises you and gives you an unexpected lift to your day. It just makes you feel good. When I received these compliments it made me aware that I needed to spread more positivity and keep the compliments going. They made me feel wonderful, like I finally got it. I am finally becoming the person I always knew I could be. How do I know? Because not only do I feel it but other people can see it, and they are complimenting me on it.

Positivity births more positivity.

Make sure to spread some positive energy today...let me know how it goes.

Oh yeah, when someone compliments you...simply smile and say "Thank you!"

  4. Lovebabz,
    You are so welcome! Take your time and learn the lesson. You will be a better person because of it.

    I will miss reading the new posts (smile)

    Yep, see if you can change those vibes to positive ones.

    If anyone can change negative vibes to positive ones, it is you!!! I'm sure your swagger can handle that :)

  5. SO true. There's something about being positive or being around a positive person which seems to brighten the day.

  6. I like this! Good post. I used to keep a compliments journal for when I was feeling down - it's been years. Your message brings a smile to my face. Thank you.

  7. Don,
    Yes, positive people attract you like a magnet.

    A compliments journal? What a great idea! I need to start one of those.
