“I feel it my love, the sun, it’s shinning bright thru your eyes,” Sean Connery’s dying words to his Queen, in the movie, First Knight. (At least a rendition of it) The Queen, lovingly smiles with tears in her eyes as she holds his hand and watches him take his last breath. I gasped. Then, I thought, why is it that we smile in the most difficult times when faced with a compliment. Yes, you read it right, a compliment, it can certainly be a game changer.
A compliment, what a mood changer. I had heard once that that, if you wanted to gain the endearment or attention of another, you pay them a compliment. It even worked for Wall E, the Robot in the Disney/Pixar Animation Movie. Surely what works for a Robot can work for us. I’m a quick study.
I have had the privilege of meeting a lot of amazing people in this life and I don’t know if I ever gave them each a compliment. At one point, there seemed to have been a sense of, “Brown Nosing,” attached to complimenting the great in every day people or even the great in who we have lovingly dubbed, “famous” people for that matter. What I soon gathered after watching the First Knight movie, is that the screenwriters get it and they’re on to something. When you pay a compliment, they pay attention, in life and even when facing death.
To each of you wonderful readers, you that take the time to return and review my writings, my inspirations and errors, watch my growth and cheerlead me thru my fumbles; I not only thank you. I salute you. A little support goes a long way. In my case, it is you that keeps me blogging everyday.
You see, I am a quick study.
