Light another’s candle

May 26, 2013

Some people are just stingy with praise and affirmation.

Sometimes, they’re even parents. Which is really sad.

Sometimes, they’re friends or people we know who just can’t give a compliment.

Maybe they think acknowledging another’s life, good fortune, talent, success  (fill in the blank) takes something away from them.

They’re wrong.

A kind word, a compliment, encouragement: they’re a sweet part of life.

They cost nothing.

Every single day opportunities to light someone else’s candle appear.

So get out that match and light it!
