Free Printable Compliment Cards

But, before we get to that, I thought it would be nice to share an extract from my new book Create Your Own Kindness with you so you can see why I am so very enthusiastic about the subject! 

 

 

Everyone Wins with Kindness

Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others. – Booker T. Washington educator, author, and political advisor)

Did you know that feelings can be caught from others just like a cold.

That’s why when we are in a bad mood other people seem really grumpy.. And it’s why when we are in a great mood all warm and smiley and jolly the people around us seem that way too. 

 

 

The science bit 

Brain scientists have found that seeing someone else show an emotion lights up the same areas of the brain as if you had experienced that emotion for yourself.. So this is why being around happy people feels so good.

And what makes people happy?

A 2010 Harvard Business School survey of happiness in 136 countries found that people who were generous were the happiest

So it’s simple hang out with happy people and be generous if you want to feel good.

Everyone wins with kindness

 

Haircut 100 (a very old pop band!)

My friend Johanna told me this great story about her children Sinéad, Senan and Aoife

We were in the barber’s at Christmas time, and an elderly gentleman was telling the barber he was having his hair cut for a very special party. He was turning 100, and his family were travelling from all over the world to attend it!

My three kids got whispering, and decided to pay for his hair cut as a birthday gift for him!! I was as chuffed as the man and his daughter were!

And the 3 kids who paid for the haircut? Full of happiness too – making everyone else feel happy filled their own hearts.

Well, kids can feel awkward saying how they feel but actually their little hearts might just be bursting to share their kind thoughts – cards give them an easier way to do this and start their journey to verbal compliments. Maybe they could post one to a teacher, grandparent or a friends or place one on their siblings pillow even or slip one through a neighbours door? 

Such a lovely thing to share.

If you can’t get a compliment any other way, pay yourself one. Mark Twain

“I will be generous with my love today. I will sprinkle compliments and uplifting words everywhere I go. I will do this knowing that my words are like seeds and when they fall on fertile soil, a reflection of those seeds will grow into something greater.”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“You know when sunlight first touches your skin and it feels warm and tingly all over? That’s what it feels like when a compliment touches your heart.”
