Brave and Attentive

I must be doing something right. This week one woman called me brave. Another called me attentive. Did I do the actions that warranted those compliments? Probably. Do I feel I did anything out of the ordinary to deserve them? Not really. This is not to discredit the compliments or say that they were unwanted… I just felt… humbled.

To me, attentive guys don’t grab the wrong soup mix when they’ve promised to make soup. Brave guys don’t hide from verbal confrontation at their club. I’m not always brave, nor attentive. But when I was told I was those things, it set the bar higher for me. “[It] makes me want to be a better man.” -Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets. So Ladies, I promise I will do my best to continue to earn your high marks of attentive and brave, for as long as you continue to give them.
