Make someone’s day…

One winter’s evening after a show a good few years ago, a friend of my Dad’s took me outside and told me some nice things about myself. He said his piece, and followed it up by saying, “I always think if you have something nice to say to somebody, you should say it”.

He was right – I felt great.

I have tried to follow his advice since, and as a result many things that may have gone unsaid didn’t, and hopefully a few other people felt great as a result. The strange thing is though, as long as what I am saying is true, I find that it makes me feel good also, as good as if I was the one receiving the compliment.

Last night I was thanked and told some nice things about myself by a wonderful bunch of people in a meaningful, genuine, stylish and embarassing (!) way. Once again, it felt great.

Go ahead, make someone’s day. It might make your day too.
