Have you ever stopped to wonder about other people – the ones we walk by on the street or the ones we encounter throughout the day? We never know what someone else is going through or what their day might be like. The senior citizen who lives near you may be feeling lonely and have no one to talk to for days on end. The cashier at your local market may have dealt with a difficult customer earlier that morning. The driver who cut you off in heavy traffic may have received some troubling news… The truth is that we just never know. And whether or not you can relate to anyone’s troubles is irrelevant. Your positive energy can be contagious, so there’s a big chance you can help brighten someone’s day by simply smiling or saying, “Hello!” Try it and see what happens. I’m willing to bet you’ll find that spreading kindness is equally rewarding.
