Have you ever gotten an unexpected compliment, pat on the back, or simple appreciation you weren’t expecting?
Isn’t it amazing how it lifts you up from the inside?
Have you ever given someone a compliment, and seen their surprised smile and watched them be lifted up?
I would have to say that encouraging others and watching them be lifted up, lifts me higher and refreshes me more than receiving the compliment.
It is a true example to me, that it is “better to give than receive”.
So, in saying that, my goal for the rest of this week is to find a way to encourage others. Whether that is a simple act of kindness, a word, a smile, or buying the coffee for the person behind me, I will find a way to do some good this week.
