The Gift of Positivity

I'm guilty of caring about what others think to a certain degree.  I know that doesn't make sense to some people,  but in some cases I value the opinion of others, mainly when it relates to my work. Yesterday was a good day overall as I received uplifting words of encouragement from those that I admire and look up to. I was in high spirits when my boss told me how much she enjoyed reading my novel and finished it in two days. It made my day to receive a card in the mail from a childhood friend telling me that she was proud of my accomplishments. I felt uplifted when a woman at work whom I think highly of congratulated me on my book and complimented that the story flowed and read well. My aunt said she didn't know I had that kind of talent and that put me over the moon. I always wanted her approval for some reason and it pleases me to know I finally have it. It feels good to be surrounded by positive people I can grow from. Be easy today.
