    Hey all! I just wanted to share something really awesome with you that I've been doing lately. It's something simple and something I really encourage everyone to at least try.

    Wherever I'm at (college, work, riding my bike, ect) I try to give people compliments. Now, it doesn't have to sound like anything forced, but you would be surprised how you could make at least one person's day by doing this.

    For example, in my speech class I have a lot of older people in there (even a 70 year old guy). There is this one woman (maybe in her 40's) that sits in front of me. We chat every now and then and she's a really awesome person. We just got over Spring Break and I noticed she had gotten her hair cut/did/whatever. Target acquired!
    "Did you get a haircut?"
    "Yes, I did!"
    "It looks really nice icon_smile.gif"
    "Aww that's so sweet, thank you!"

    I don't care if it made her whole day or not, but I think it's important to make people realize that they matter. Everyone deserves to be loved and given positive reactions sometimes.

    I do it at work often to common customers and co-workers (since I work retail). Again, it's not something forced but something I try to do when the situation rises for it.

    So anyway, kinda cheesy but you would be surprised on how well others feel and how well you feel for just giving out compliments or saying something nice to people. Try it out!

    I like this very much and think it's true, as long as the compliment is genuine.
