The highlight of my work day

Today, a customer walked into my photography studio for a passport photo. Seconds before she sat down on the chair she looked into the mirror and asked me something I get asked million times a day, “Do I look okay?”

Before I got the chance to answer she interrupted, “You know what!! I look great. I’m beautiful… I have jars of self-confidence and self-esteem. I packed millions of them!”

“Yes, you certainly do!!” I beamed as I took the photo. I chatted a little with her and her daughter while the photos were being developed. Before she walked out she smiled at me and said, “I could even give you some jars and you could forward them to your loved ones.”

I love her attitude and wanted to share it with all of you today in case you need jars of self-confidence and self-esteem. β™₯
