So what a nice compliment…

I’m talking with someone this week.

They’re new, and so I tried to be generally nice and ask about them, show interest, and just be overall friendly and welcoming.

It was amazing — these little things, and they made someone else feel comfortable and happy.

They are smiling and go to me:

“I get good vibes from you!”

Wow, good vibes — awesome!

And now I was happy too.

I thought to myself, how often we goof and give off the wrong vibes and how easy it really is to just treat most people decently and sincerely, and get a good reaction.

Yes, not everyone is easy to get along with and not everyone is nice.

But generally, I think it’s good to try to be the type of person that others feel good vibes from.

I’ll take that and continue to try and spread the wealth. ;-)
