Whenever I get complimented on something small like my smile or the way my eyes light up when I’m happy, it makes my day. Lately, I’ve been trying out something new: I make it my goal each day to compliment at least three different people in an effort to make their day better. Honestly, you never know what a person is really going through and how much a small compliment may help them. The little things are sometimes more important than the big things. I value kind words over material gifts. Kind words are gifts to my soul; they make me feel better. That is why I starting challenging myself to use kind words more often.
