// It really pays off//
Today I was at a Yoga class, and my old high school teacher was there too. We talked, and she asked me how my brothers were and what they were up to. After a little while, she realized that she knew my little brother as well (‘Cus he’s in the same high school now, that me and my older brothers were in), and she started praising him sooo much! She told me that he was such a humble and sweet boy, he was so genuine and smart.
Then I laughed a little bit and said ”Yeah, he’s really down to earth and clever, my mom always compare me and my older brothers with him, because we were more the rebellious kinds”, to that she said “What, are you kidding me? You were so outgoing, and even though you were so young you always made sure that your classmates were comfortable and happy! Everyone can read a book and be ‘smart’, but what you posses is outstanding, you have a natural way of making people smile.”
It made me so happy! I guess if you really try to be a good person and take care of the people around you - others will notice and appreciate the person you are.
