I love your blouse. That color looks great with your eyes. Have you done something new to your hair? “You look marvelous.”

Bet you didn’t know that it’s National Compliment Day! This unofficial holiday was dreamed up by Debby Hoffman and Kathy Chamberlin, who believed that “compliments provide a quick and easy way to connect positively with those you come in contact with.” While SNL’s Lorenzo reminded us that “it is better to look good than to feel good,” telling someone that they look good makes them feel good, too.

What’s the nicest compliment you’ve ever received? Do you pay compliments frequently?

There’s lots to like about the people closest to us, so make sure you share a compliment today!
