Someone out there sent me a really sweet email the other day, letting me know that something I had done had had a great impact on her life. It was very touching, very emotional for me. I found myself actually getting teary-eyed.
At first, I thought, well it wasn't that big of a deal. I didn't want any credit for what seemed like a RAK.
But then I rethought that idea. First, was it really random? Where did the idea come from? I know what my answer is, but what is your's?
Second, maybe I should allow myself a little bit of credit. It's OK to pat myself on the back a little, now and then. It's good for the spirit, for the self-confidence. For me, things have been a bit rough lately. I've been taking a beating at the hands of someone above me, and it's really been stressful. This email was like a salve on my heart. It did me as much good to do the act and hear that it touched someone else, as the good it did this other person.
The moral of my story is to spread goodness whenever you can, you never know how big the impact may be.
OK- off the soap box... go spread some love.
