13./ Better than a badgers eyebrow.
Getting on the bus today I noticed a young man who looked quite shy not making any eye contact with anyone. Then I noticed he had the most incredible eye make-up on. I felt pretty envious and wished I could do my make up like that. I always end up looking like a badger! So compliments where compliments are due. Fairs, fair. I said “By the way. Your make-up looks fab. I wish I could do mine like that.” The smile that illuminated his face was beautiful. He looked like he’d just won the lottery. “Thanks so much! Have a lovely day!” came the reply head up, eye contact and smile given. Moral of the story, always give that authentic compliment. You never know, you might make someone’s day.
