Interesting how the words pay and compliment show up together in this prompt. Whatever could I have been thinking, eh?!
I think this is a good way to live. Especially for someone like me who often sits waiting for someone to say something nice and good and kind, you know, pay ME a compliment?!
I’m NOT saying that I require praise nor seek tribute. It’s more that I love how it feels to give them which only expands how I feel when I receive them.
Yesterday I read these lovely words from one of my favourite wordsmiths:
I sometimes feel like I write to myself, to the air. And then one of you pipes up and I am reminded that I am not in this alone, that someone is listening, that it matters to someone when I write. I’d write even if no one listened…but oh BOY am I grateful for you someones who listen.
And just like that I felt right with the World again. Knew it was okay for me, too, to feel extra specially glad for this daily practise and the ways in which I enJOY true connection, even with people I would NOT know if I bumped right into them!!!
Each day that I write I discover anew the supreme JOY of simple Gratitude.
I love you, Currie
