1. It was an arm day, and the weight room was a ghost town. I prefer free weights for arm work, but the weight room at the Y can get crowded. I don't care so much who is there, but I admittedly hate sharing benches. I like to have my own little slice of space, and I had space galore to work on my guns ;)

2. As I was walking into the Y, there was a young girl walking in with her mother. This story is even sweeter if you know that she was about 5 years-old and wearing nothing but a swimsuit and flip-flops (crazy hot weather this week!). As I walked past her she looked straight up at me and said with the most sincerity a child can muster "You're pretty!" I stopped, squatted down, and told her thank you and that she was very pretty as well.
Sometimes it takes a child to remind us how easy it is to make another person smile. Old, young, friend or stranger, it takes only seconds to share a compliment. Perhaps we all need to start acting like 5 year-old little girls a little more often...
When was the last time a stranger surprised you with a compliment?
Did you "pass on" the kindness to someone else?
