This is a difficult post for me to write but one I really wanted to share with you just as a reminder as you rush about in these last few days in the run-up to the holidays. We will perhaps never know why the person in the street didn’t return your smile, didn’t thank you for holding the door open, looks just plain miserable or sits there seemingly ungrateful. So give today because you can, not because you expect something in return.
All we can do is to be there for each other. Today, perhaps give away a few more smiles to strangers than you would normally just because you can. Don’t expect anything back, we have no idea what is going on in that person’s life. Reach out to someone you know who is struggling and let them know that they aren’t alone. Not only will it help them, you, in turn, willl feel amazing.
Tomorrow will be tough but I will do my best to give what I can. Will you give a little more of you today? I’d love to hear from you.
