Image via WikipediaThis is not much of a post, but a just have to share with you how the tiniest little things can change my day if I approach them with the right attitude.
Just this minute, the phone rang. I said, "Hello" and the person on the other end said, "Who is this?" It sounded like an older man with an asian accent. (I thought for a minute that it might be my friend, Roy, but his accent is quite young.)
It's not considered overly good manners to just say "who is this" and sometimes I am irritated and taken aback, but this time I replied, quite brightly, "This is Rebecca!"
"Oh...what number is this?" It was pretty apparent at this point that this was a wrong number but I told him my phone number. "Oh...", he said. "I have a wrong number."
"No problem", I responded nicely, thinking that he would just hang up. But, instead he said, "You have the beautiful voice."
"Well, thank you", I said, feeling light and happy. And he hung up.
Here's what's funny. I really believe him.
