For some reason we seem to live in a world where it is easier to complain than compliment. Not sure why that it is. Imagine if we all stopped complaining and we could only be positive. Imagine if we could only speak words of genuine kindness, genuine praise. How much easier would it be to get out of bed in the morning, to go to work, to be loving and kind every day. I have to believe we would all be happier.
I have been told I give praise and acknowledgement generously. I daily tell people they look nice, they did a great job, made a great deal, smell nice!!! And yet I find hearing those same words in return seems to pain people – why? We all need it!!! We all need some kind words to motivate and inspire us every day. I feel as though I am begging and maybe I am because in all honesty I need it myself. A kind acknowledgement goes such a long way and it is soooooooo easy to do. Maybe if we could all just give it a try. If we could tell people they are beautiful, smart, aced a project,…I think we would all walk taller and be so much happier. Can we give it a try?
