Last week I asked you all to list little things that make you smile and I sat here grinning like a fool reading them all - thank you! So, today's post started because of a conversation Cindy and I had on a Facebook comment. Today, I'm offering up a challenge - what little thing can you do to make someone else smile?
Nothing major or insincere, but if you feel like playing, try to compliment someone today. The lady in Accounting who always smiles when you see her or that guy who sits in the corner of the lunchroom by himself, or the cashier at Target or the counterperson at Chick-Fil-A (true story, the guy who rang up my order last week at Chick-Fil-A told me I had really pretty nails. I was kind of surprised because I don't do anything to them; I just let them grow and keep them fairly even, but his off-hand comment brightened my little day a tidge). When you think about it, how often do YOU get a sincere compliment from a co-worker or stranger? Does it make your day a bit better or am I that easily amused?
Anyway, you can share it in the comments here or you can keep it to yourself or hell, you don't even have to do it if it seems disengenous. I'm judging our company's Cubicle Decorating Contest this morning, so since I'm going to be all over the building and talking to employees I don't usually interact with, I'm going to try to notice little things and make a point to mention them. Who knows, maybe they'll just think I'm weirder than they thought, but maybe it'll make one person's day. Maybe it'll make MY day?
Happy No Whining Wednesday!!
