Today I am thankful for positive attention. I do not know about you, but I have noticed that negative attention will find you wherever you are whether you look for it or not. It will practically hunt you down seemingly with the intent to rain on your parade and then some. But what is often less focused on, extended to others, and noticed is positive attention.
Now, positive attention does not have to take the form of compliments that are extended or acknowledgement of one’s successful efforts at doing something, though it can consist of those things. Positive attention can be as simple as being noticeably admired and appreciated by someone (i.e. lingering glances of appreciation sent your way). Think about it. Who does not appreciate the exhibition of a look of positive appreciation on the face of someone else as they look at you?
I venture to think that sometimes people really do just enjoy knowing that they can still turn heads, and that they can still capture the attention of others in a positive way. Now, I am not referring to anything overtly sexual or disrespectful. Better yet, I am referring to the innocent admiration of one person by another.
And I do not know about you, but when I realize that I have caught a gentleman’s eye a slight grin crosses my face and a somewhat involuntary extra pep enters my step. And I am fairly certain that I am not the only one who has experienced that. Exactly! I did not think so. #lovebythedrop
