I LOVE this quote! I enjoy being around people who are helpful, who look out for others and lift others up when they are having a though day. It is impossible to know what is going on in other people’s lives…a smile, a kind word, a nice gesture can make their day and can make them feel a lot better.
As the years go by I am having harder and harder time tolerating people who enjoy putting others down. I am very tired of hearing gossips, seeing judgmental looks and listening to mean comments about others. If I get into an environment like that, I just immediately walk away. I really don’t need that negative energy around me. I decided to hang out with people who look at others positively. I pay more attention to details and people’s actions towards each others. I follow leaders who are generous with others and leaders who talk to everyone with the same respect whether it is a highly ranked manager or the homeless person sitting around the corner.
Your challenge for the day:
Make someone you don’t know smile! Help an older lady or gentlemen carry their groceries, give them your seat on the bus, notice the lady shedding a tear by the coffee shop and stop for a second to tell her it is going to be okay!!! If you pay close attention, you will be shocked how many people will need your smile today!
