"Kind words are like honey--sweet to the soul and healthy for the body."
People always say to throw someone a smile or a kind word. If you've ever been thrown a smile or a kind word, you understand better than anyone why it's so important. That rush of warmth to your soul--even if it just lasts a moment--is one of the best feelings in the world. Someone took the time to be positive.
I've had some experiences like that. I just heard a bunch of positive things.
Speaking as someone who's really good at being negative and cynical, I appreciate the positive things. It reminds me that there is still beauty in the world--people can still be as pretty as one of Shakespeare's sonnets.
Yesterday and today especially. Everyone just seemed to be in a good mood.
I follow Natalie Whipple's blog. Her posts about writing are great. Really great. Even if it wasn't today, it's still wonderful. It's a natural part of life that has affected every girl whether they write or not: crushes.
The Writing.Com newsletter came in today. The author exchanged some of the words for "Winter Wonderland" and made it "Writer Wonderland." It's incredibly cute.
Perhaps it's the spirit of the season. Enjoy it. Come the day after Christmas, well, the good moods are going to be depleted.
