Can You Take A Compliment?

I can live for two months on a good compliment. -- Mark Twain

Good News of the Day:
"I like your jeans." "I like your brown shoes." "Have a nice day!" Don't you love it when someone says something nice about you? Doesn't that brighten your day? Imagine how wonderful your day would be if someone said something nice about you, just because. Brett Westcott and Cameron Brown, also known as The Compliment Guys at Purdue University, are doing exactly that. "When people come up after they've had a bad day and say thanks for a good compliment, that brightens my whole day," says Cameron. Compliments are so contagious, that the duo even went on a 10-day compliment tour last summer!

Be The Change:
Give someone a compliment today!


  1. I LOVE compliments just as much as I ADORE giving them. :)

  2. Oh Kat, I feel so caught out. Saw a 10-11 year old girl today wearing a real cute silver sparkly hat, and I really wanted to compliment her on how funky she looked. Unfortunately I let the moment slip by and spent an entire hour wondering why I let a great little opportunity like that slip by. A compliment can save an entire day. Bummer!!

  3. You are so right! I find that being on the other end of getting a compliment just really makes my day. What a good practice to make a difference, I haven't ever thought of doing it purposefully but that is a good practice! Thanks for the challenge!

  4. What a great idea! I love spreading JOY and compliments make you feel JOYful!! Never thought to just look intentionally for ways to compliment but sure will start!!

    Love and blessings


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
