You mean the world to…

… the man you let ahead of you in the line at the Pharmacy.  He didn’t look as if he was in a hurry, but was so appreciative when you offered.  He could have been up all night with a wife sick with the flu or perhaps nursing his own fever that kept him away from work for the last week – deadlines were missed, stress was increased.  Or maybe he was simply having a bad day with every little thing going wrong until he got in line with you – your small gesture changed his dreary outlook for the day.

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.
