Last month I played a tune for my teacher during a lesson. I had worked on it especially hard in practice and expressed my disappointment when he found an opportunity for me to improve. I was thrilled when he replied, "There's always room for improvement, but you showed moments of brilliance in that performance".
"Moments of brilliance" - wow! That made my day for certain. Heck, I'm still happy about it, though I doubt I've repeated the effort since.
What are some of the more uplifting comments you have received?
