Recently, I wished a friend a Top Ten Day. 

What would you consider a Top Ten Day?

It dawned on me that I should live each day as if it is a Top Ten Day.

Better yet, I should be a Top Ten Day Maker–for others.

What could I do for others that would make their day? If we all lived that way, we’d be Top Ten Day Makers.

What would that look like?  What would our world look like?

Name one thing someone did for you recently that made your day.

Name one thing you did for someone else hoping to make their day?  Did you spend any money?  Is that essential?

January 24 is National Compliment Day.  Mark your calendars.  Please pay someone a sincere compliment on that day.  Who will it be?  Better yet, Be a Top Ten Day Maker.  You have time to plan ahead.  I hope that helps!

I’d love to hear your comments.  Thanks for visiting. Come again soon and bring a friend.

  1. What a great idea! I joined a new writers group today. Gave: some good critiques based on their feedback. Received: Knowledge that I’ve learned A LOT about writing in the last 20 years–made me this a good day for me!

    • Carol,
      I appreciate your saying that you like this idea. I know your critiques must have made the day of each writing group member. Congratulations! You’re a Top Ten Day Maker! I also want to add that I think you’ve made a wonderful adjustment to your new home in a short while. Good for you!

  5. Cool beans, Linda! I love the way you look at things…

    • Donna, what a great compliment! Thank you. I’ll keep it close and remember it on National Compliment Day. Thanks so much for visiting and for commenting. With compliments like this, you have to be a Top Ten Day Maker.

    I like the Top Ten Day poster, Linda. I need to learn how to make posters! Your blog makes my day every time I check in with it.

    • Gretchen,
      Your comment about my blog making your day, made my day! I didn’t visit but one of the suggested sites someone gave me, but it was super easy. I gave them credit on the post–www.Quozia.com If I can do it, anyone can! Thanks for visiting and for being my good friend!

  7. I love the sentiment Linda. What an excellent post (I wasn’t going to wait until the 24th to say that)!

  8. The whole world could benefit from this sentiment. I like to surprise people I don’t even know with a compliment. I think we’re all special. Thanks Linda, Sarah

    • Thank you, Sarah. Wow! You think this is whole world worthy? That’s big! Even so, the small things we do for others do add up! I agree that it is fun to surprise someone with a compliment. You definitely surprised me with this one. I also agree that we all have special qualities that could benefit the world, if we shared them in positive ways. Thanks so much for commenting. You’re a delight!

  9. Hi Linda, I posted my squirrel picture and linked it to your site. When I didn’t see anything from you today it made me a bit concerned. I hope all is well with you and your husband. I look forward to hearing from you. Tim

  10. I promise to do just that, Tim! 😉
