My number one New Year's resolution was to pay compliments when I think them. I think that sometimes we don't show the appreciation to the people in our lives that they deserve. Not only that, but I wanted to be more vocal about compliments to strangers and acquaintances. (There's a fine line between being complimentary and being oogie. Don't cross it.) Doesn't it brighten your day when someone tells you you look nice or you did a good job on something? Just like if you tell a person they are ugly enough times they will start to believe it, if you tell them they are beautiful enough times, they will believe that, too. Why not tell them they're beautiful?
2013 has turned into the year of new experiences for me. I've had more new experiences in the past few months than I have in the past 5 years combined. I want to do all the things! ALL the things!
