Today I received the most beautiful compliment from the same customer who noticed me reading in the store a couple of weeks ago.
"You know, you're a really nice person. I notice these things because I work with special needs kids, and I study a lot about how positive energy can affect people. I see you around this store, and you're kind of mellow but you're always smiling. And that positive energy just comes out of you, and you know, other people can feel that."
Thank you, sir!
