True story ******++"The Power of a Compliment"
Of all the words spewed upon my brain while attending college, there were two incidents that have remained a part of my reality to this very day. I share one now:
Professor: "What gifts do you have to give to the world?"
My reaction: Shoulder shrug, meaning I don know...
Professor singling me out: "You, for instance, have a wonderful smile"
My reaction: Sitting up tall, my personal confidence level soared to the roof
Thank you to that Sociology 101 Prof who managed to give a compliment that has remained in my life and makes me smile to this very day...imagine that...just a few positive words having such an influence on a shy, fledgling freshman
I choose...compliment sharing
I choose...receiving compliments gracefully and thankfully
I choose...howling at the moon (just for fun)
Zenjolly day to ya
