Recently I entered my first juried art show and had one of my pieces selected for display. I was so thrilled and surprised but was immediately humbled after going to my next art lesson, where I couldn’t get anything right!
After receiving so many compliments, I thought of a saying I had heard years ago. “A compliment is like an expensive perfume. The fragrance may be exquisite to smell, but you wouldn’t want to swallow a single drop.” Yes, I had been tempted to swallow a drop or two.
