I am very vocal with my feelings to a person! I can tell you everyday how much I love and appreciate you and I can tell you straight as well if you wronged me. I totally believe in HONESTY.
I was having a meeting with brand partners who are turning into good friends a couple of weeks ago. Kriska, whom I have shared so many good and bad times with shared to me how she thinks of me as someone who loves to give compliments and shower people with simple gifts as a Language of Love. That statement struck me, she is right!
So as much as I do that unconsciously, I am appreciating how God gave me the gift to see the good of anyone I face and little do I know how much that can make anyone's bad day into a good one!
That's why I'm giving back and share to YOU what I think would make everyday a BETTER day not only to the people you interact with but also for yourself! When I got that compliment from Kriska, it made my day totally better knowing how I I have the capability to create a small (yet meaningful) impact to another person's day! Imagine that simple statement of: "Your hair looks extremely good today!" or "You have a wonderful smile!" can literally turn that frown into a smile --- I know! Because someone mentioned that to me and it literally made my heart flutter!
Now I know not everyone is as vocal as me! Trust me when I say, there are times, I just can't put into words my appreciation to that someone so I would come up with simple gifts that I know will make them happy! Like sharing them my favorite cup of coffee, gifting them with their favorite shade of lipstick, or just give them a small piece of cupcake JUST BECAUSE you appreciate them for being part of your life...no words need to be spoken...and if you're broke? Who cares? A big, genuine smile and hug will do!
I know it'll work! Because I received some of those during my down times and it literally puts me at ease....
