Dishing What’s Received

April 30th, 2008 Posted in connections, gratitude

Every so often I would meet a client who just makes my day. With every profession that requires working with people, you come across all types of characters — the rude ones, the shy ones, the resistant ones, the arrogant ones, the polite ones, etc. And then there are the ones who just makes you feel good to be helping them. The ones who make you WANT to help them because they’re deserving and they’re one of the good ones put on earth to make life pretty. Right now, I have a client like that. Circumstances led him to needing my help, but all I can say is that I’m the one who is truly blessed to be able to help him because it makes me feel really good to know that there are good souls out there, who despite all the crap they go through, can walk through their day with a big smile and still treat everyone kindly. The world constantly throws him lemons, and all he does is pick them up and comment on what pretty yellow they are, and that at least he can make lemonade now because he was thirsty. I like people who lift me up. It really is true — the way you act towards others is exactly the way others will treat you in return. You get what you deserve. This guy deserves my utter respect, my kindness, my help. Because he was willing to give it first without asking for anything back.
