Okay, but that Klossy video, though. Does anybody else feel like their heart is about to burst out of their chest with the amount of love they have for Karlie?
I have been a fan of Karlie’s since that day in 2007 when I saw her in the Little Manhattan editorial for Teen Vogue. It feels like I grew up with her. I’ve watched her go from this tiny little 15 year old baby who walked an exclusive for Calvin Klein, to this amazing 23 year old woman who is one of the world’s biggest supermodels, and has one of the world’s biggest hearts.
So, to the me from 2007, who tore that editorial out of Teen Vogue and pinned it to her bedroom wall - well done. You couldn’t have picked a better person to be a fan of.
Compliments are so underused. A simple sentence, a few words, or even one word, can honestly make such a difference to a person, and stick with them for a long time. Even if it’s something simple, like their hair, eyes, clothes, laugh, nails etc, it honestly can make someone’s day, week or even month. Sadly, there are so many people who are so used to not being complimented, that when they are, they are so shocked to the point where they’re speechless or they instantly believe that ‘it’s got to be some kind of joke’ because they’re so used to never being flattered. For people who have low self esteem and/or high self-consciousness, this can truly mean the world.
It doesn’t take long. Few seconds tops. And in that small amount of time it took to compliment them, you could have changed the way someone looks at a part of themselves for a long time.
