I haven’t been alive for that long, but long enough to make a difference.
The other day at work I simply said hello to a customer– that in itself is common courtesy, or so I thought. It completely made this guys experience, because I was friendly and acknowledged him in a way not many people do in my business. I was blown away because it felt so normal for me. So often in our world today we get wrapped up in our life line, our goals, ambitions & lives that we just forget about the feelings of others. But let me tell you something, it’s not all about you…It’s not about you at all. If more of the people in the world came to figure out that it’s about all of us–working together… as a team.
It doesn’t take much to move someone’s mood from sad to happy, send a little word of encouragement, or just let them know you love them, or that you’ve been thinking of them. Words can move the soul & make wonders happen. & to genuinely act from your heart & bare your soul for the world to see…it’s a difficult task, but taking it one day at a time…is the easiest way to start.
I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately, I suggest any of you–if I have any readers out there….should try it yourself. It’s incredibly therapeutic & people in my world have already started to notice a change.
I’m not saying you won’t have tough days ahead of you, because you will….But the more you care for others & I mean genuinely, not for your own satisfaction or to move ahead by manipulating…. you feel a weight begin to lift & your heart will feel lighter. I promise.
Take care you beautiful souls! If you’re listening.
