There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment. ~Robert Brault

What's the saying? Who cares what others think of you...or something like that?

Easier said than done I suppose. It's super easy to say, "I don't care what you think." And sometimes that is true. But, I must say, an unexpected compliment came my way tonight and I have been floating on cloud nine ever since. I care what others think, and I don't care who knows it.

So, why is that when people are saying bad things about us that we need to make it that someone's opinion doesn't matter? And why is it that when a person is told they look nice or they do something well that it means so much???

In any case, tonight I went to pick up some fliers and drop off some cd's at a local theater and a friend of mine said, "Have you been working out? You're losing weight." This was especially exciting because I was in jogging shorts, a crummy old t-shirt, and my hair and face were a mess. It just meant so much to have someone notice. I've only lost 2 or 3 pounds and can't see any difference on myself and he just kind of floated in like a little workout angel and made me want to work even harder. Maybe the next 3 pounds will look even better than the first 3.

So, thanks for the compliment, you know who you are.

Tomorrow, another 2 mile walk workout. I'm excited. Let's hope I get enough sleep to have energy for it.
