I received a touching, heartfelt and handwritten note today from a public figure whom I admire greatly. It came out of the blue and absolutely stunned me with its kindness. When you admire someone and they make the perfect gracious gesture, it gives great satisfaction to know that my admiration was well-placed. You can have the celebrities, all of them. I’m not interested. Just leave me the hard-working people with big hearts so I know what I’m aiming for.
Agree! Having someone let you know that you’ve made an impact on their life, and that they respect and appreciate you “just being you” is a very powerful compliment.
Agreed! It’s all about the heart.
