Accept it! Today is National Compliment Day
In my lengthy radio career listeners have often told me, "Wow you don't look anything like I thought you would." which always left me bewildered. Their follow-up would be something like, "I thought you'd be fat." Again, I never really knew how to respond. Thankfully I found an instructional video that explains how to give and receive a compliment.
The power of kind words makes a huge impact every day. Give an extra compliment on National Compliment Day which is observed annually on January 24. BTW you have the nicest smile!
