How to make someone's day!

"The fact that you can change someone's whole day for the better by just being A HUMAN, is one of the most powerful & fulfilling things ever!" - Vex King

^ THIS. Whenever I think about this, it makes me SO happy. I think one of the most beautiful things about our existence as human beings is that we always have the potential to make someone's day. ALWAYS. It is such an amazing capability that each and every one of us possesses - and we should definitely use it a whole lot!

I work in retail and constantly have customers coming in and out of the store; this one girl came in recently wearing a floppy hat as an accessory, kind of like this:

As soon as she walked in I told her, "I'm so jealous that you can pull that off, you look so stylish and pretty!", and she got SO happy. Before she left, she came to me to say thank you again and that I made her day. It was so sweet. 

(I compliment customers in the store on the daily - about the most random things too! This guy was wearing epic socks, only reason I noticed was because they had one of my favourite paintings on them, so I told him. He started telling me all about where he got it from and why he likes Van Gogh.)

Seriously though - how cool!

Lesson: Never underestimate the power of random compliments.

A compliment is verbal sunshine. - Robert Orben

I am 100% the girl who will message someone on tumblr being like, "Your blog. I LOVE IT"; someone who put a photo on social media saying, "I really admire your views on the courage award controversy that you posted"; tell a girl at a party that I think she's absolutely gorgeous.

Why not? I think it's nice for people to be complimented, be appreciated and be acknowledged for just how awesome they are.

I tend to compliment people I don't know very well a fair bit, maybe I'm just weird like that…haha - but I also know that at times I can neglect complimenting those closest to me, even though I do try my best!

I was with my mum the other day when she got a phone call from work, and hearing her talk about all types of professional things - it made me so proud; I didn't know if I had ever said that to her openly before - and when I did, she said that meant the most. 

One day at work, I gave this to my boss and she posted it on her Instagram later:

Sometimes in the middle of random message conversations with my friends I'll be like, "You're kind of the greatest", "I admire you SO much, and this is why", or "You're doing SO well".

If my friend ever sends me a photo of themselves from a party or for an opinion - if I think they look pretty, I am going to make it 100% known to them! (Usually with a bucketload of emojis... :P)


 The other day though, my friend sent me this:

I was super tired out by the end of that day, and that message - it made everything worth it. To this friend, who's probably reading this right now ;) Thank you again ❤️

A while back I changed my profile photo, and one of my younger cousins messaged me saying, "Looking very beautiful" -  and it was the Cutest. Thing. Ever.

I've been blessed with some lovely random compliments, and I hope I do the same for other people just as much.

Speaking of which...for you guys reading this right now - thank you so much. 

I so appreciate you taking that little bit of time out of your day to read what I've created, whether it's just a bunch of photos or something more meaningful. Every view, comment and/or message I've received - thank you, it means more than you know. 

The fact that you took time to connect with what I'm thinking or feeling, it shows that you are a very kind, attentive and friendly individual. You're awesome. Thank you.

Let's try and throw around a bunch of compliments to people! Because, why not!?!

Random compliments really do make your day. Make someones' - just do it.

What  are some of your favourite compliments to give, or what's one of the best compliments you've received?

  1. Another great post!
    Sometimes we all feel down, for no particular reason and a random compliment can really change the day! Coming from people you never really expect are the greatest surprises, as well. :)

  2. Lovely!

    1. Aww thank you! Absolutely LOVE your blog! :)

    1. Haha how awesome right!?! By the way, your blog is so cool! :)

  4. This is going to sound weird but i really like the Van Gosh socks. xx

    1. Not weird at all!!! I absolutely freaked out when I saw them! Hahaha, excited to keep updated with your blog! :)

  5. Wow I love that you're such a sweet person and give out so many compliments. I try to be like that too because I know excited and happy I get when a stranger compliments me :).

    Oh and if Starry Nights by Van Gough you should get the "Shooting for the stars" bath bomb from Lush (unfortunately they only have it around christmas) but if you use it with a bubble bar it makes you bath water look so much like the paniting! That's actually why it's my favorite!

    1. That's such an incredibly sweet compliment Rose! Your comments always make my day! :) It's the best when it comes from someone totally unexpected!

      OH MY GOSH, you have no idea how much that excites me, this is DEFINITELY happening! Haha as soon as it's november I'll keep going in to make sure I get one ASAP - that sounds amazing! Have you started your new job yet?! :)

    2. I could say the same about you! I'm always so happy when I read your comments on my post thanks for all the sweet positivity :)

      I'll get like 10 of them too haha
      No I have not yet, I will start when I move to the city where my University is in, which won't be until mid-October but I'm really excited about it already!
