It Took This Guy 14 Years And Two Failed Careers To Write This Letter, But He Absolutely Nailed It

James Breakwell is a father of 4 beautiful girls who is known for the funniest parenting tweets, but this time he touched a more serious note. “It took me 14 years to write this letter,” James writes. “Today I finally mailed it.”

Along with it, he included a signed copy of his book. The very first one. The package was mailed to a person that believed in him, that inspired him. We don’t always get to thank the people that deserve it, but James did a damn good job putting everything into words. Grab some tissues and scroll down to read the touching letter below.

The real reason you should compliment people from time to time. Even if you don't think their results are big. Even if they are strangers. Because sometimes even a few words are enough to make someone feel special and help him/her accomplish something greater.

simply put: if you have something nice to say, say it.
