Sometimes a kind word is all it takes to put a good spin on a bad day. Mondays are usually an onslaught of craziness at work, and I feel about five minutes from screaming in frustration. But just as I was feeling that way this week, two people in a row came into my office to thank me for being there when they needed something. That rocks. Feeling like I've made a difference to someone is definitely the best part of my day job.
Take a second today to think about someone who did something nice for you. Call them, visit them, send them a thank you note. I bet you anything that they'll remember you for that kindness.
