Please make the time to watch the youtube short film entitled Validation.
It is well worth the fifteen minutes. If I can't convince you; read the following description from streeteditors:
Films have a powerful effect on the human psyche. Some of them make you laugh, cry, question and comprehend and some educate you about worlds unknown. Short film Validation is one of those films that will make you smile. It tells the story of a parking attendant who gives his customers validation by dispensing both free parking and free compliments. Above all, it profiles the importance of acknowledging and ‘validating’ people. It’s a great reminder of how we can all create a better world, by sharing a smile and a few kind words. Validation has been played at 34 film festivals worldwide and has won 17 awards, which shows that people are searching for films with a more spiritual and enlightening angle. For 16 minutes of inspiring film, take a moment to watch Validation. (streeteditors)
I had the pleasure of viewing this film at church on Sunday. Like Pastor Peter indicated-- there are millions of messages that could be preached after an intro like this. (just an FYI- its not preachy or religious in any way, so don't let that throw you.
It's a particularly happy feeling to sit through Sunday morning and come away inspired and joyful.
