I’ll Leave You With This…

19 Jan


It’s been a while, weeks to be exact. I apologize to my loyal readers. I have had so many exciting things going on over the last couple of weeks. Okay, that’s really no excuse. But, I have something I want to leave with you. It’ll be good, I promise.

Have you ever run into a person that is so happy to see you, they give you a warm, welcoming embrace. How did you feel? Was their attitude infectious? Did it immediately lift your spirits or put you in a better mood? It happened to me the other day. I was at the mall and I ran into a guy from my hometown (Big ups to Rochester, NY). I promise you he was just someone I knew from through a mutual friend, but he greeted me like no other. His wonderful hug made me realize the importance of relationships in our lives. A simple simple smile, a ‘hello, how are you?’, opening the door for someone, introducing yourself to a friend of a friend can go a long way. All of these actions are baby steps to building relationships, relationships that may very well develop into so much more later on in life. We are into 2012 now, I challenge you to consistently incorporate acts of kindness into your daily routine.

I’ll leave you with this:

Try to make one person happy each day and in forty years you will have made 14,600 human beings happy for a little time at least…isn’t that amazing : )  If a handful of the smiles you give out during the next 365 days, end up flourishing into conversations and friendships, imagine the inner wealth and happiness you can build in a year!
