A few weeks you came up to me and said some stuff I never saw coming.
Stuff that caught me totally and utterly unawares.
Stuff that was ridiculous in it’s positivity, generosity and belief.
It made more of an impression on me than you’d ever know.
In those few minutes, you managed to make me feel both pride and humility.
That might sound over-emotional claptrap, but it’s true.
I’ll let you into a secret, the reason I didn’t look you in the eye when you were talking to me is because the words you said made me want to cry.
Not sad tears, but happy.
OK … and pathetic ones.
But the fact is, having someone I respect – and like – express such faith in me was unbelievably amazing and an utter honour.
I have no idea if I can see through what you asked me to reconsider, but if I do, you’re one of the reasons I would.
I can’t say that about many people, but you’re definitely one of them.
Thank you for that.
But no guarantees.
