A Simple Compliment Can Go A Long Way

I remember the day of writing my final exam, I was the last one still writing in the exam room as always, reviewing my exam paper, while everyone else had already finished and left the room. After turning in my exam-paper, I started to leave the classroom, but decided to turn around and say what I had meant to say.
What I did right then was that I genuinely thanked my teacher for everything. What I said to him lastly meant a lot more to him than I thought it would - "I really enjoyed this class." I did not think much about it. I was just being genuinely honest with him, but the look on his face was remarkable. He seemed really touched and appreciated my simple comment, just knowing that one of his students had truly enjoyed his class. That is what I call a simple, yet very meaningful act of kindness to brighten a teacher's day, because they work so hard for us and truly inspire us to learn.
It is what we say and do to show compassion to others that can make somebody else's day extra special. I believe that a simple compliment can mean a lot more than one can think.
Always give Random Acts of Kindness a try- even a teenager can do it!
