Appreciate yourself. The next time someone pays you a compliment, don't shrug it off or put yourself down. When we push away acknowledgement of our divine selves, we can't amplify the good that is trying to move through our lives. We can be humble and still accept praise. Accept that others are seeing the God within you. Take pleasure that others recognize your true identity. And give the gift of a compliment to someone else. -Mary Mannin Morrissey
We all have gifts that we don't recognize because they are so embodied in ourselves that we think of them as easy and therefore not worth mentioning. If fact, other people see it as a gift that they don't have and therefore they appreciate it. When someone gives you a compliment, a simple "Thank You" will do. However, take a moment to think about that compliment and what it really meant to the sender. I think you will discover something about yourself that will put a smile on your face and who couldn't use that?
