I’ve recently been pondering about how it is easy to get in my own way. And, I realised, I may not be the only one who does this. For reference, symptoms can include –
* little voices saying – not good enough or who wants to hear that?
* hiding away
* etc. etc.
Being alive comes with no guidebook, lots of strange advice and (potentially) interference from well-wishers and “those who know better from their own take on life”.
The result can be a real mess of what and how to do things and confusion…
Does anyone else relate to this? If you do, perhaps you’d like to comment and contribute?
So, how to touch another’s life?
Remember how you feel when someone shows you consideration and kindness? You know, the gesture – a bunch of flowers, holding a door open for you, letting you go first – how did it make you feel? Good?
We’re all human and we all have the need to be seen and acknowledged. How about reaching out and acknowledging another person and show you both know they are there and that they are important enough to receive your gesture of kindness.
An act of kindness, an act of consideration can make someone’s day in just the same way it does for you. In fact, you never know, you may just save someone’s life by showing them they are important enough to matter…
And remember; when acts of kindness are performed, both the giver and receiver feel better. So, why not determine to be that giver to touch another’s life?
It is simple, it just takes heart and the risk of reaching out and recognising another human is worth the effort of acknowledgement!
Perhaps you would share how your experience life-touching experiences… Go on, comment!
