You mean the world to…

… to the person who is the center of a spiteful gossip, because instead spreading lies, you pressed your lips tightly together and ignored the mean spirit underlying the words.  Yes, your friend is grateful to you for not feeding more untruths in the tangled mess created by other “friends.”  Or maybe it’s a rumor overheard in the school cafeteria line, about a teacher drinking when she shouldn’t.  It could also be about a family member’s stay at the hospital, a private issue that others around you won’t leave alone, insisting instead to guess the ailments and disorders that may have required the four or five days of medical attention.

About The Power In You

A soul, like you, that believes in the amazing qualities we share. There are days I grow weary and frazzled from interactions I've had with others. And sure, there are times when I want to curse, yell and shake my fist at people. Let's face it - we are annoying, we get on each others' nerves, we pick, meddle, interfere and say things we later regret. But when we step back and bite our tongue, take a deep, deep breath and react with kindness despite the anger welling up within ... well, it's absolutely amazing what one tiny gesture can do. There is kindness all around us, but most importantly, there is a limitless, infinite amount within us as well.
