On top of the world

Today somebody said something nice about me. I have felt so criticized lately that it was a surprise of enormous proportions. I couldn't believe it! A complete stranger, saying something nice!!

It is just something that has become too common, too easy, to criticize others...to demean them, to put ourselves above them. We never consider how they feel, what they are going through, how hard they try.

Now please don't get me wrong...I have so many loving family and friends who are constantly kind to me. But people who do not know me or anything about me have seemed to be very harsh lately, and a kind word from a stranger was such a boost to my spirits.

Say something nice today. Say something kind. You never know how much someone needs it. :)

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." - Plato

Who's criticizing? I am sorry! I don't even really know you and I'll beat them up for you! Feel better! You're beautiful!
