    Good Morning dearies
    Who does not like to get compliments, whether others like or not you all know how much I like to get compliments. When we do something we feel so happy when we get compliments. With compliments I get inspiration and encouragement to do more. Whatever we do we have to put much effort in it and when it is appreciated we feel very happy . Even children love to do when they are appreciated . Now a days chidlren are very smart and if we want to get something done from them we have to tell them we will gift them then they do it fast. When we appreciate whatever they do they take interest in it.
    Oh I forgot to mention about the compliment I got when I was returning from the temple,This was in 2013. Some girls were taking the weight of the people and they asked me also to see my weight and told me it is free. I told them I am in a hurry but they said it wont take time. They asked me my age and I told them it is 71 yrs , they were saying aunty cant believe you are 71 yrs , you can understand how happy I must have felt and they brought a smile on my face. They told me to come in the evening and collect the report. Now waiting for the lovely feedback from all of you

    :hello:
    Who does not like to get compliments, whether others like or not you all know how much I like to get compliments.

    True Sister. Even saints besides complements now-a-days demand compliments too. I too love it and I hold it always irrespective of its monetary value close to my heart

    When we do something we feel so happy when we get compliments (C). With compliments I get inspiration and encouragement to do more. Whatever we do we have to put much effort in it and when it is appreciated we feel very happy .

    Yes. C helps us to prop our sagging morale, boost our confidence, energise and turns one ecstatic. Improves hobnobbing. In reverse direction, it may in the short or long run pay rich dividends. My school class mate, other day met me in local after nearly four decades. He was dubious of my presence but bold enough to enquire to establish that I am his school mate. When I asked him how of his kind remembrance, he surprised me with his reply. “When English class teacher was checking every student whether the student brought to class new exercise notebook, you gave me the one by tearing your new exercise book into two halves.” I forgot this incidence. I asked him “how it still stays green in his memory”.

    He responded, “compliments - unforgettable.”

    Even children love to do when they are appreciated . Now a days chidlren are very smart and if we want to get something done from them we have to tell them we will gift them then they do it fast. When we appreciate whatever they do they take interest in it.

    Yes. That seems to be always working even with adamant or and stubborn kids. To get thinks done, children to be instructed and guided in a suggestive manner containing some small promise as a token of our appreciation of their effort. Even in epics one could find scenes of characters offering compliments. One can discover Lord Rama offer compliment - in the narration
    Hey Presto! The Lord Of The Ring, Crows And Squirrels


    Oh I forgot to mention about the compliment I got when I was returning from the temple,This was in 2013. Some girls were taking the weight of the people and they asked me also to see my weight and told me it is free. I told them I am in a hurry but they said it wont take time. They asked me my age and I told them it is 71 yrs , they were saying aunty cant believe you are 71 yrs , you can understand how happy I must have felt and they brought a smile on my face. They told me to come in the evening and collect the report.

    There can be no better TONIC - compliment in (a woman’s) life than someone appreciates our looks vs weight vs. age. & say we look (Ms) Markendaya. It will stay as a weighty compliment for ever in the ages to come!

    Now waiting for the lovely feedback from all of you.

    I trust feedback’s ALREADY here would replenish your bottle of TONIC.

    God arranges compliments through His Bhakthas for one who is pure at heart.
