Compliments

Man, sorry I haven't posted in so long! I mean, it's not like anyone has noticed, but I still feel like I should apologize. Finals week, unpacking a million boxes from college, and searching for a job has kept me pretty busy. But things are settling down a bit now, so hopefully I'll be able to write more often.

I was watching SoulPancake on Youtube (again) and I found a new video that repeated a valuable lesson we all know, but probably need to be reminded about. Complimenting those we love.



I know telling someone you appreciate them can be hard sometimes, even awkward. Believe me, I have never been the "touchy-feeling, compliment-giving" kind of person before. But whenever I express to someone how much they mean to me, it's never as uncomfortable as I think it's going to be, I feel great afterwards, and I notice my relationship with that person it strengthened so much. 

So next time you go out to lunch with your best friend, get ice cream with your sister, or say goodnight to your parents, just tell them thanks for everything they've done for you. It will mean a lot to you both.
