50 Compliments for National Compliment Day!

Thursday, January 24, 2019 is National Compliment Day here in the United States. So, it is time to remember to look for the special in everyone and be brave enough to tell them why they are awesome!

When one thinks of compliments, often the most common ones would be similar to, "You are very pretty." or "I like your hair." With National Compliment Day coming, I decided that I could do better and decided to come up with my list of compliments that might just mean more and comment on more than just the outside of a person.

Now, complimenting someone that you have never meant doesn't leave you with many options, so the normal compliments will still work. However, if you are complimenting someone you know, try to dig a little deeper to tell them what really makes them special!

50 Compliments:
