Apparently, there is a National Compliment Day and I missed it. National Compliment Day is January 24, if you were wondering. Though this post isn’t directly about National Compliment Day, it is about compliments, both getting and receiving them.
The Reno-Tahoe International Airport set up a Free Compliments booth to hand out kind words to passengers on January 24. Passengers received compliments on their glasses, colorful scarves and even their boots. I read about one gentleman in particular who was about to pass right by the booth without stopping was told “Sir, what a confident gait you have.”
It just goes to show, even when you are in a hurry, there is always time for a compliment. Today, give out a compliment or two. It will make someone’s day, which is never a bad thing.
