Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 137


“If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.” – Ruthie Lindsey


Thank you, Spidey!

This seems to be an apt quote, after my Friday post on receiving compliments – found here.

If you see something that you admire in a person, a quality that makes them stand out, you should let them know (and I don’t mean in a crazy stalker-ish way, because you fancy them!)

It might be a smile that lights up the world around them, or a way with words. Maybe it’s the way they care for others, or how they are able to create masterpieces from little nuggets of nothing.

Tell them.

They may not know how to take it, but a compliment is something that is often looked back upon, and cherished.

Have a great Sunday Peeps!

    Thank you, Ritu, for this very wise and wonderful advice. It is just the encouragement we needed to share the compliment instead of leaving it unsaid!!!

      I think if it’s worth you picking up on it and admiring in the first place, then it is worth a mention!
      No Worries Chuck, look forward to reading more of your work!

    You are right, Ritu. I must say that people buying your books and reviewing them is the best compliment ever.

    I agree! Don’t just notice it silently because perhaps the other person never considered it special what you noticed!

    We shouldn’t hold back a kind word or smile, it may be just what is needed at that given time. You and Spidey rock Sister!!

    Maya Angelou has been quoted as saying that a person will be remembered by how they make you feel. So, spidey’s advise is well taken.
