Compliment!!!

Thursday, September 06, 2012

I've never been very good at accepting compliments, although I am very good at giving sincere compliments to those around me, anyway, one of my good friends overheard me downplaying my weight loss and I "how good I look" to a social friend who paid me a sincere compliment... my good friend later said this to me.."Debbie, when someone compliments you and you dismiss/disregard it, you're basically telling them they're an idiot." I had truly never thought of it like that and have been making a greater effort to humbly accept compliments.... Any one else experience this?
Have a great day!

    I think the key is believing the compliment in your own heart. It is hard to accept compliments if you don't believe what they are saying is true. So I hope you DO appreciate it when people recognize the phenomenal changes you have made in your life and all you have accomplished. You are AMAZING!

    Ditto; sometimes we dismiss compliments so we don't seem proud or conceited. But if you accomplished a goal, soak in the compliments for your hard work.

    Good advice. It sounds like you need to listen to the encouragement when it comes.

Smiles!!!!

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable."- Joseph Addison

It's amazing what a little smile can do for others! Have you shared your smile today?

    Thankfully our household is full of smiles and laughter on a daily basis. I think that is one of the greatest joys of having children. Have a great day!

A thought.

“Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.” Swedish Proverb

Sometimes we tend to love only those whom we deem worthy, you know those who are easy to love, when in reality those who appear to be "unloveable" are perhaps the ones who need love the most..

Have a wonderful day...
