Praise what I notice now
“So, I have to say,” I told a lady making coffee in the breakroom this morning, “I love your style!”
She went from appearing startled to relaxing into a smile.
“Thank you! You just made my day.”
As I reached for tea and honey, I replied, “It’s about time I said something! I’ve noticed for months. Today, your outfit is just way too rocking to leave it unsaid.”
As I made my tea, she walked away smiling.
I smiled, too, and thought how I probably shouldn’t take months to praise what I notice now.
Even these little things can improve a whole day.
