Kissed by a Beautiful Stranger on South Congress.

Everyday, I give compliments to strangers and amazing beautiful things happen. Last weekend was no different. I brought out my new version  of my Compliment Guy cart. It’s a July weekend in Austin Texas and of course the weather is Texas hot. Sweat is pouring from my pours and the sun beating down upon any open skin. The heat and sun will try and turn me into Texas toast. I look at it this way, when you sweat your body purges toxins from your body. The more I sweat the more pure and powerful my mind and body become, oh and I like toast and I Love Texas.

A Saturday afternoon Austin, Texas on South Congress near Allen’s Boots complimenting everyone and even the cool dogs. Tons of beautiful smiles and positive happy energy. Suddenly a woman stops very close to me and turns her cheek to my face and points to her cheek and says: “kiss me right here”, I pause than pucker up and she turns quickly and lands a sweet kiss directly on my lips and walks off quickly. How did you like the kiss a few witness’s asked? I replied: “I liked it allot, it was a soft moist kiss with a precision landing.

Later in the day a man named Max came up to me after I complimented his hat. He said I just bought this hat and thank you for the compliment. Max than asked if he could give compliments. I said yes but please keep everything family friendly. I stepped back gave him the mic and he gave great compliments to all as his friend videotaped him. It was great seeing the positive energy exchanges between total strangers as Max was smiling and so too were everyone he complimented. It was a great Saturday, I lasted 5 hours before I ran out of water and my voice was getting hoarse.

Sunday now rolls in and I decide to head back near Allen’s boots once again. I only lasted 4 hours this day. Something different happen. A man from Denmark showed me a picture of his beautiful new baby and beautiful wife, He asked if he could videotape me complimenting his wife by name. Of course, I said and at that moment realized my compliments are being blasted to Denmark. A very clever man. He shared some stories with me and liked what I do. Another great interaction with another great person.

I continue to learn while giving compliments that all people are beautiful, especially when we smile. If we look at people and accept each person as we accept nature and it’s individual uniqueness than we will see more smiles and happiness. Of course if a wild animal growls at you or a fellow human is growling too than we would want to preserve ourselves by leaving growling things off in a distance until they resolve their growling matters.

Keep Austin Weird Festival

The Compliment Guy was the official greeter at the 2015 http://keepaustinweirdfest.com/ festival. 8 plus hours of continuous compliments to all the fun cool people. I stood at the top of the steps at the Long Center as  virtually everyone that entered received at least 1 genuine compliment.

All the smiles and all the fun and great music equals another great day.  A  brave 7 year old girl walked up to me with her dad off to the side several steps away and asks if she could give me compliments. I crouched down so I could look at her eye to eye.  She said some wonderful brilliant compliments. I then gave her some compliments. Next, she opened her arms as wide as possible towards her back and asked: ” may I hug you”? She gave me a hug with a smile that warmed my heart.

Each and every day I give compliments something extraordinary happens on top of an already great day. The extra great moment at the Keep Austin Weird Fest was an extraordinary 7 year old girl that clearly will achieve great things.

The Festival organizers said “The staff and people loved you, hope you will be back next year.” Yes of course, I will be back. I always go where I’m welcomed.
