compliments that aren't about physical appearance

There are a lot of "you're so beautiful", "you have a great ass" and "I wish I had your skin"s thrown around but I rarely witness compliments that aren't about physical appearance. We all know the phrase, "It's on the inside that counts". But, in our crazy world that rule doesn't get followed. There is way too much focus on what is happening on the outside- weight gain/loss, race, hair color, possessions, etc. I am making a conscious effort to stop judging people based on their looks- positive or negative. I am a pretty accepting person, but I judge people all the time without even noticing. (They look rich, she dyes her hair, they didn't say thank you, she is really pretty, he left the toilet seat up, she is wearing a lot of make up, those kids are eating really unhealthy food.) Along with dropping the judgements, I want to begin seeing people and situations for what they truly are. When you admire or criticize someone for their looks, you are just seeing a false reality. None of that is real. What is real, is what's going on on the inside. It's on the inside that counts, remember?

I challenge you to give compliments that reflect the way that you feel deep in your heart. End jumping to conclusions about someone by just their physical appearance. Learn about them and express REAL feelings and honest compliments. Don't be afraid to give a genuine compliment because you are afraid to open up or be vulnerable. I've done that too. Open yourself up to the universe and the people around you and you will be greatly rewarded.
