Are you on this page because you received a card?
Sometimes itís a simple thing: holding a door, saying a kind word to a frustrated mother with a crying baby, letting that car go ahead of you at the intersection. Sometimes itís a bigger thing: helping an elderly woman change a tire, giving a ride to a neighbor or co-worker, supplying a meal for a family in need. All of these things make our lives so much happier each day.
Think about a time when somebody did something nice for you. It may not have changed your life, but it made you smile, give a lift to your spirit, and may have encouraged you to do something nice for someone else.
Now think about a time when the opposite has happened. Someone lets a door shut in your face. They cut you off in the intersection. They race to get in line ahead of you. How did that one simple act of rudeness make you feel? It can ruin your day, and you are less likely to have a positive attitude and are less likely to help someone else. A chain of negative events has started.
Change is hard and it will not happen overnight. Bad things make a big splash, but kindness has a ripple effect. Both of them move and make change, the ripple effect just might take a little longer and go a little less noticed. While it might be slower than we'd like to see, it will happen if enough people believe in seeing it through.
