Who, me?Why… ah-thank you! Isn’t it funny how compliments can sometimes almost make you second guess what was said? It's like someone says, “Gurrrrllll, I love those shoes,” and I look behind me to find a more fabulous pair of shoes. It seems like well-deserved compliments aren't deserved at all. Yet, you're right, I am wearing fabulous shoes!
Aw, shucks!Compliments are all in the delivery. Today, when I opened up my planner, it had “you’re super funny and insanely nice and everyone really likes you” pre-printed on its margins. This is like the mother of all compliments. That's a bold statement coming from a lined notebook! How could anything be more important to me than the opinion of my planner?! Real compliments, however – a really good warm and fuzzy, make-your-day show of admiration – well, it just takes the cake in my humble opinion. A firm handshake and a “great job” with some serious eye contact from your boss is as wonderful as a chai tea latte on a winter's day; a “mommy, you are the prettiest” from your two-year old can melt your heart. Most of all, a good book filled with encouragement is sometimes exactly what you need to tackle this thing we call life. In celebration of National Compliment Day, we've created some free, downloadable lock screen phone backgrounds for you. Enjoy!
