What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
Oh my, this post is going to come across super coincided. I hesitate to share it because you probably won’t even believe that this happens a lot!
Over the last few years I’ve made a complete style overhaul. When I first started teaching my wardrobe consisted of what I call young professional old lady. It was just so gosh darn hot my first years in Arizona, I had a hard time dressing for the heat! I won’t even share any pictures from that time, because it’s hard on the eyes! After immersing myself in blogs and pinterest, I consider my current style boho vintage glam. (I love my sparkles!)
Such a long lead up to a small compliment.
As I’ve changed my style, people started noticing. My coworkers were the first to pick up on the change. I hear you look so cute, where did you get that probably three times a week. Complete strangers in public have approached me while shopping to say the same thing! Once, a male Forever 21 employee said he liked my style. If that’s not a stamp of approval, I’ll eat my summer fedora.
No matter how many times I hear this, I have the hardest time taking the compliment. See, I still feel like that awkward girl who couldn’t dress to save her life. I had a friend in college who would get so angry when we would throw away her compliment. She would explain that by complimenting her friends she was affirming the way God saw us. Perfect and complete.
So now, I just say thank you very much! And go on my way.
