You give off energy. When you interact with others, what kind of energy do you send their way? Having a bad day is a trail of dark energy you take with you through the day. Can you change it? You actually can if you are intentional about it.
It’s a matter of perspective
We can intensify the impact if we intentionally work together to help those around us, like a defuser. Have you ever had someone say just the right thing you needed to hear on one of those days? It helps. Okay, what if we watched for that through our day? Both sides of it, those giving it off, and those needing it, are those we could spot if we had our intention on it.
We can watch for the kindness of others, especially the ones we usually take for granted. Pause long enough to let them know you see and appreciate them. If it catches on, and your day was filled with people saying it to you, how do you think your day would go then?
Tasting the fruit
When we purposefully and intentionally interact with kindness that’s genuinely from the heart, it will leave a sweet taste of fruit in your soul. You taste that fruit when you give it away. You cannot give someone a heartfelt compliment and feel sour.
Wake up late? Don’t let it lead you down the path of irritation and rudeness. If you are meant to be where you are at any given moment, then watch instead of who you see that might need kindness from you. Perhaps your chance to interact with them was divinely guided. What do you think that would do to the energy you give off? You could be a walking talking Blessing to others. Even our briefest interactions with others can last be lasting. If your words come from the soul, they can remember how you made them feel for a lifetime.
Where to find it
Every single day can be a part of that. It’s already out there in communities, support groups and organizations. Social Media groups on every platform share it with each other from Rallies For Hope and Kindness to the Military and Allies of #Angels14 to empath groups that are Beacons of Change. If you don’t belong to one, perhaps it’s a way to help shift things around for you. People can be amazing. You can be amazing. No matter what you have been through, it’s a choice… and when you find yourself feeling it, share it. Be kind. It’s as simple as that. Now that you’ve read this (thank you) perhaps you will notice these opportunities that you otherwise would have missed.
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Scott Adams
