A lady walked up to me in the street while I was busy faffing around with a parking meter. As she walked past me she just suddenly said:
"You know, you look wonderful today"
After I'd done a double take it became apparent she really was speaking to me. Now, I didn't know this lady. Had never seen her in my life before and probably would never see her ever again. Clearly I was delighted and as I checked her out quickly for signs of madness I found myself cheerily saying ' thank you'. To which she added, "no, you really do!".
I noted something about this lady; she herself was extremely cheery and seemed very happy with herself indeed. I am sharing this for a few reasons:
- 1. Because it just absolutely made my day. It made me smile, put a spring in my step and a 'swing' in my hair.
- 2. Because then I got to thinking that well, I did have my best colours on that morning and I had made an effort to dress for the meeting I was attending. So, getting these things working best for you really do have an impact and other people really do notice.
- 3. The best bit..... I also got to thinking how much this random act of kindness had really lifted me. It was a little wonderful moment in an otherwise quite stressful week. I was also reminded me of the time, the month before where I had stood waiting to go into a changing room while a woman debated a dress with her friend. She looked AMAZING in said dress and I had wanted to say, but something - not wanting to look like a mad stalker changing room lady - had stopped me.
So here it is ladies, I am launching: Spread The 'Wonderful' Word Weekend.
THE RULES TO SPREADING THE WONDERFUL WORD
1 - You should choose a stranger or acquaintance but not a good friend or relative (though do that too).
2 - You should really mean it.
3. Your recipient should be looking good - just not simply good looking. If you see what I mean.
4 - Don't delay. Just tell them.
Spread the wonderful word, Lady Mirror Ball
