PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 by Richard Carlson in DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

“Telling someone something that you like, admire, or appreciate about them is a “random act of kindness.” It takes almost no effort (once you get used to it), yet it pays enormous dividends. Many people spend their entire lifetimes wishing that other people would acknowledge them. They feel this especially about their parents, spouses, children, and friends. But even compliments from strangers feel good if they are genuine. Letting someone know how you feel about them also feels good to the person offering the compliment. It’s a gesture of loving kindness. It means that your thoughts are geared toward what’s right with someone. And when your thoughts are geared in a positive direction, your feelings are peaceful.”
