Average Jane



It took a stranger…

It took a stranger to tell me that I am too critical… even though my mom has been telling me for years.

It took a stranger telling me I had a beautiful smile to brighten my day… even though my long-distance friends sent my hugs from afar.

It took a stranger asking me for my number to make me feel attractive… when I should know after all this time I’m not that bad.

It took a stranger to tell me I’m smart… even though I know deep down I’m smart.

 

What has a stranger told you lately that made a difference to you?

    That I look radiant in being pregnant when I just feel fat.

    It’s so true…and think of this another way: we have the ability to brighten another’s day with the power of our words.
