AW, really?

I originally had a "dream bar crawl" kind of post planned today, but after the day I had, this post has just headed a different direction and I'm going with it. And it got a lil serious, so I added some somewhat relevant gifs. 

Compliments. We all love them right? Seriously, the simplest compliment can make my entire day. Take Tuesday, I was in the Chick-fil-A drive thru before work, and the girl taking my money told me how pretty my nails were. Then the girl next to her comes over and tells me how much she loved them, too. It was seriously the smallest thing in the world but it really just made my morning. 

I've been told a few times at work by customers what a pleasure it was to speak with me and how happy they are that I answered the phone. But then you get those people that can just completely kill your whole day because they're so rude for absolutely no reason at all. 

Yesterday, everyone was writing their inspiration posts, and there was so much love going around. I had some of the sweetest comments left on my post and it just made my heart smile all day. Even though I was an awful day at work, I kept seeing these sweet comments in my inbox and it kept me chugging right along. 

It amazes me how much someone else can just completely lift you up or tear you down with just a simple sweet comment or rude remark. It's not that I care what others think about me, because to be honest, I think I'm awesome. I mean, I definitely have faults, like we all do, but I try so hard to be my absolute best self all the time. Totally not trying to be full of myself, I think every single person should think this way about themselves. 

My whole point of this rant is that I think we all need to focus on the positives every day and not let those people who can't see that get us down. I'm also making it a point to compliment someone every day so that I can lift someone else's spirits like you all did for yesterday and the sweet girls in the drive-thru did on Tuesday.

Compliments on my nail polish make me so happy, its kind of ridiculous! You're so right, we all do need to re-focus on the important things!

So true! Being positive is so important. I can't say I'm the best at it all the time, but I do try to give compliments and be kind. I'm sorry people are rude to you. It just means they have something going on in their own life, and they're lashing out at you. Not that that's an excuse. Hope you have a great weekend! :)
