My 25 year old daughter came home from work the day after getting a major hair cut and said, “Mom, you won’t believe this but I was standing in line at Starbucks this morning and a random lady came up to me and told me she loved my hair!”
That random lady made her day because she was a ‘random’ lady. It’s one thing to compliment your family, co-workers, and friends; it’s another thing to compliment a stranger. With a stranger, there’s nothing in it for you and the impact can be powerful, more powerful than you realize.
So the next time you notice something that impresses you about someone or a group of people, especially people you’ll probably never see again, get up the courage to tell them. Be that random voice. It could be the feedback that changes their day.
