I was sewing a costume robe for my son for an upcoming party when my daughter came up behind me.
"Wow", she said, "You do that so well!".
I laughed as my stitch lines went wonky and as the fabric bundled up. "Thanks - Kind of."
She replied, "Well, you do it well according to me."
Perhaps instead of comparing and real-izing (making REAL) what we think we aren't doing so well,
perhaps we can realize that there is always someone out there who is looking at you and in awe of who you are, what you have, what you are capable of doing. Perhaps we could listen to the voice - the one beside us or the one we can cultivate within - that is saying, "Wow, look at you!" -
and take the compliment.
