Are you a “bucket filler?”
A bucket filler is someone who goes out of his or her way to make someone feel valued or appreciated. Appreciating others does two things. First, it makes a difference for the person on the receiving end of your comments. It’s sad, but most people get very little encouragement and appreciation as they go through their day.
Second, it makes a difference for you. It flat out feels good to complement and appreciate others. That feeling affects your mindset and attitude as you engage various tasks and interact with others.
