The vast and free source of power that we often overlook

I am convinced that a compliment that I have for someone else, isn't mine to keep. We often keep our praises and compliments for someone else for ourselves. Sometimes they are shallow, like seeing that a female co-worker has made an extra effort on her hair today or someone bought new shoes. But sometimes they run deeper, like appreciating the time someone has taken to educate you on something or be thoughtful of your private situation.
