    I Like Complimenting Others And Some Days It Comes Back

    One day last week a girl in the elevator with me was wearing some great shoes, so I said, "Hey, those are great shoes."  The next day she said hi in the coffee line-up and we started talking. So I told someone else I liked her necklace and she told me her daughter...

    It Was Nice:)

    Around 8 in the morning, I was waiting for the bus to take me to work and feeling like crap (just because). Traffic was slow, and then some guy yells out his car window, "You have really nice eyes". Totally caught me off guard :)

    "You're Beautiful!"

    Back in 2008 when I lived in New York me, my sister and our friend went to a store to go shopping. It was a sunny windy day. I didn't feel pretty or comfortable at all. I just felt so dull, irritated and dry all the same time because my hair is all over the place. The sun is hot...

    It's nice talking to strangers especially if they are from other countries or cities because you can discover and share many things just by speaking to them.
