Don't Hold in a Compliment

Don't Hold in a Compliment

Life is short, there's no time to hold in compliments. If you have one, share it.

I was driving through a parking lot this past weekend and saw someone with a great-looking Milwaukee Bucks jacket.

I decided to, in that moment, roll down my window and say, "That's an awesome Bucks jacket!" — to which the person replied — "Thank you, I appreciate it!" with a smile.

A simple moment, that could easily not have happened, did. It yielded a smile from this person and perhaps the person he was with ("Who would roll down their window to say that?!") and brought a smile to my and my fiancés face.

Don't hold back. We can always use more smiles and more compliments.

Don't hold in a compliment.
