Yesterday afternoon I did a volunteering shift at the Wildlife Trust gift shop. It was a very busy afternoon and I found it quite tiring, however, I did receive an unexpected compliment from a customer which made my day.
I was chatting to a couple about the use of plastic and she told me she is in her fifties and remembers shopping with her mother as a child when fruit and veg were sold loose and put into paper bags for taking home. I was agreeing with her when she asked if perhaps I would be too young to remember that. I pointed out that I was probably about 10 years older then her and she professed not to believe me, saying that she thought that I was younger than her! I did suggest that perhaps she needed to visit Specsavers but I thanked her for the compliment and we had a chuckle about it.
Another blogger wrote recently that we should always try to be nice to others and I think it is true that receiving a compliment or a kindness from someone does brighten your day.
It may be a coincidence but I was trying out a new makeup from Avon yesterday. Perhaps I should go and order a truckload now, just in case.
Perhaps you look much younger than your years because you have lived a trouble-free life with little stress. Or could it be that you have always used Oil of Ulay to keep your skin looking youthful?ReplyDelete
Or the health-giving effects of consuming champagne and strawberries every day?Delete
I am so with you on acts or words of kindness. Apparently, I am a naturally kind person (I've been told this a lot) but I do try and spread as much kindness as I can on a daily basis. The other person is pleased and/or happy and you, too, feel good. It's a win win situation!ReplyDelete
So true. I only wish more people felt the same way!Delete
