Today’s featured holiday is,. National Compliment Day... Show Notes Where did this special day get it’s start? National Compliment Day is celebrating it’s 20th birthday this year. We have two ladies from New Hampshire to thank for this holiday. In 1998 Kathy Chamberlin of Hopkinton, New Hampshire and Debby Hoffman of Concord, New Hampshire created National Compliment Day to promote kindness and civility. It’s been the subject of news stories, radio and TV reports, and acknowledgement by National Days Calendar, one of the main resource that chronicles these special holidays. A sincere compliment is music to the ear and love to the heart. How long has it been since you gave the gift of music to the ear and love to the heart of someone else? Do you actively look for reasons to share a kind word to recognize the performance, the appearance, or the character of a family member, friend, or even a stranger? Looking for reasons to give compliments is a worthy habit of mind. How much happier this world would be if we tuned our attention to noticing the positives of others - and voice compliments about those positives - rather than carp about some trivial perceived faults. When we give a compliment, we’re telling someone they’re worthy, they’re noticed, and their appreciated. Why not share true heartfelt compliments with family members, co-workers, and others today... And every day. If you enjoyed today’s episode, share it with friends, family, and social media. They will thank you for the gift.
