You're so...

Today, our Monday Listicles challenge is ... 10 Compliments. This is kind of a tough one. I don't necessarily accept compliments very well. I have gotten better during the past few years, but it's still something of a struggle. I broke this list up into two, because I think it's important to both accept compliments from others as well as compliment ourselves.

Five Compliments I received during my first two weeks at work:

  • I'm glad we hired you. You're catching on really fast.
  • You're very efficient.
  • I love your shoes.
  • You're in great shape. Really great shape.
  • You eat so healthy.

Five Compliments I gave myself in the past two weeks:

  • This bikini is fitting you so much better.
  • Wow! You've really improved with your bike riding in the past two years.
  • You look really great.
  • You totally rocked that workout.
  • You are awesome!

How have you have been complimented recently?
Do you compliment yourself?

  1. Way to go! Feeling appreciated at work is always a good feeling.

  2. Wow, sounds like the job is going great! Congrats! I have a hard time accepting compliments, but I try to be genuinely thankful when I get one:)

    1. I try to be genuinely thankful, too, but I sometimes fall into the trap of negating the compliment instead of accepting it. "Thanks, but blah blah blah"

  3. I love that you kept track of these! I need to get better at complimenting myself on things. It is hard sometimes to see the good in ourselves when we want to keep doing better - or when we are just critical of ourselves.

    1. Yeah. It's really easy to fall into the pattern of being too critical.

  4. I love it - and I totally agree! We all should compliment ourselves!

  5. I agree..... Compliments are hard to take. Good on you for complimenting yourself (no easy task either).

    Keep up the great work!!!

    1. Thanks, Stacey! I have a lot to feel good about right now, so the complimenting is easy(er).

  6. I need to take your advice! Be willing to accept and give compliments. It's a work in progress. Great list.

  7. You are awesome!!! Good for you. And I always pegged you as a great shoes wearing girl!!
