Please take a guess as to how many responses came in. I'll give you a hint: it was less than 100. Okay, it was zero, as in none. A few other words to describe the response would be:

  • zilch
  • nix
  • nil
  • nowt
  • nothingness

Grand Junction Colorado is Deserving of Positive Thoughts

According to Psychology Today:

Compliments are one of the most extraordinary components of social life. If given right they create so much positive energy that they make things happen almost as if by magic.
...compliments amplify positivity; they not only deliver positive effects to others, those effects bounce back on us, ramping up the positive atmosphere we breathe.

 

The website verywellmind put together an awesome list of 100 "Positivity-Boosting Compliments." Since we could all use a little boost every now and then, here are a handful of compliments taken from that list. These were chosen completely at random, and cover a variety of subjects.
