A favorite thing to do....It is especially helpful when a friend is having a bad day. I am sure my mother helped nurture this gift, and it always surprises me that people have a difficult time saying nice things, but I can always find a positive for the negative....
Thank you to everyone on this site who has thought what I had to say was worthy of a connection request...it helps me know that others feel I have worth ♥
Ok...there must be a reason why I picked this track. Rich Relationships' challenge is:
Tell a co-worker, friend, or family member 1 thing you admire about him or her.
How to do it
Tell someone one quality that he or she possesses that you admire. Tell the person face-to-face if you can, and if not, call, email, or message him or her. Be simple and say it with sincere appreciation.
Why it matters
Telling other people what you like about them can help build closer relationships. Who doesn't like to hear about their best qualities? Research has also shown that gratitude is an important characteristic of happiness, so your expression of gratitude - in the form of admiration - is likely to increase your own happiness, too. Finally, paying attention to others' good characteristics can also help you to identify qualities that you would like to develop in yourself.
Morris was in his usual place in the morning sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress that was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of IQ and common knowledge.
He turned to his wife Sherry, with a look of question on his face. "I'll never understand why the biggest schmucks get the most attractive wives."
His wife replies, "Why thank you, dear!"
- Cute as a sack full of puppies.
- If things get any better, I may have to hire someone to help me enjoy it.
- Gooder than grits.
Albert Einstein's friend was once asked if it was true that only ten people in the entire world truly understood the man. After some pondering the man replied, "Oh, no. There at least twenty, but Einstein is not one of them."
When you cannot get a compliment any other way, pay yourself one.
Thank you for agreeing to do a pact with me and for your encouragement, Leslie!
I complimented members of my group today for their use of dbt skills. Also found reasons to compliment, my son, husband and mother.
Thank you, dc for this website and for coming up with different and interesting (most of the time) tracks to challenge us with!
Blessings and love!

Leslie, Our pack went by way to fast....Will have to do this later tonite, Had dental surgery and the pain meds are kicking in....Have a great Friday
I told my son how proud I was of him for attending a funderal this afternoon, even if difficult.
He suffered a loss recently when his friend was walking down a local country road & was killed by hit and run driver who said he didnt want to stop because he had HIS kids in the car and didnt want them to see what happened! omg! =(
It is currently 101* and attending a friend's funeral to be supportive for the family is the right thing to do. I told my son to take some bottled water & he'll be okay, they should have some shading.
A funeral on Friday the 13th :( RIP Ryan Andrews, you will be missed! ♥
My baby boy partricipate in a wonderful football camp this week with Velocity Church and Ben Watson of the Cleveland Browns. He was so open to the entire experience and learned the fundamentals of football and salvation through Jesus Christ. I am so proud of him and all the young people, parents, coaches and members of the Velocity community. It was a wonderful time of fellowship, fun and spiritual growth.
My wife recently gave birth to our little boy. She went natural all the way without any pain killers. I am really proud of her. Well done Kathrin
Tell this to the hubby all the time ... will tell my son when I see him this weekend how proud and admire how he has managed his finances and his life. Moving out at 20 years old, working full time and going to college just amazes me every day.
Ok Frank (by the that was my Grandfather's and brother's name) we are only 2/5 up that mountain. I saw a valley between those mountains, wonder how many people live there? There have been many beautiful views and such tall trees. The wildlife is just amazing also.
Everyone have a super fantastic day, after all it is Friday the 13th! :-)
Goodness this is a tough one,I've been sitting here trying to think of something nice to say about Honor but what can you say about a kid who would be there for her dad after a nasty accident and stick around after two strokes..I would like to say something nice but I'm afraid that she might get a big head and become hard to live with,so I'm keeping quiet besides I don't want people to be calling her a fathead.
Thanks for the encouragement Karen and I believe this is day 3 Honor,hopeing everyone has a great day.Hugs to all
She said, "Stop, before you make me blush!" Perhaps she needs the daily challenge about accepting compliments :) Regardless, I kept going until I was finished. Sincere, true, from the heart about her good qualities. Shine some light today on another! Be Love. Namaste.
