Secondary Warning: It’s way too long.
1. It’s not all about you. I get at least one incredible email/message/comment about the blog or myself every single day (no bragging intents, acha). These messages are heartwarming, generous and it’s impossible to have a bad day with this kind of stuff coming your way. Rather than letting it only be about myself (I naturally feel proud of myself and my work) it always hits me how fantastic it is for someone to be in such a place where they can compliment another person so selflessly. It takes someone with a full heart to send such generous messages and this fact actually, truly warms my soul. It’s not just about me, it’s about that person too. It’s also so gratifying to know that there are people like that in this world. I’m one of those who believe every thing is connected and just having great people in your immediate circle is not enough, we need them everywhere. A stranger may be kind to my parent which is worth everything to me, someone thousands of miles away may expedite an application that improves a loved one’s life – it’s all so necessary and with every kind message I read, I’ll do it for a second, but I’ll always reflect on this.
