On Compliments

It’s amazing how many compliments a person can receive in a single day.

I don’t say that to brag. I’m not sure it’s something to be bragged about, because as the recipient you aren’t really doing anything. It’s the people who give the compliments who should be bragging.

Today, I received perhaps the best compliment so far. A whole elevator full of people, and all commented on my weight loss. Iwas starting to feel awkward about it (quit looking at me!) when one guy piped up with, “I’ll keep an eye out and let you know if it looks like a strong wind is coming up. You’ll probably want to tie yourself down.” LOL Guys. You gotta love ’em. :)

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?

Anyway, receiving so many compliments is one of the things that has helped me get this far. The sad thing is that I don’t think I’m giving nearly as many as I’m receiving. That will change. I know how much they’re worth to receive, and I also know how good it feels to pass them along to others.

So I commit to giving 13 compliments to people I see tomorrow. Why 13? Why, because it’s Thursday tomorrow, and Thirteen on Thursday has a nice ring to it. LOL Will you join me?

And speaking of compliments: the lovely Rose has given me the Good Chat Blog Award for “People you would want to sit down over a cup of tea with and have a good Chat.” How great a compliment is that! But then, I already knew she was a sweetheart, and I would love to have a good chat with her, too. (Only I’m having Diet Coke.*G*)

In the spirit of things, I’ll pass the award along to a few of my favorite folks:

Irene at LoserIrene vs. the Fat Monster

These are all smart, funny, successful women who I would be thrilled to spend time with!

They’re not the only ones, of course. If I ever can win the big lottery, I’m hosting the tea party to end all tea parties, and you’re all invited! :)
