Good energies

  
It’s so easy to forget how much we can change someone’s day in one interaction. No matter what our relationship with the other person is and no matter what type of environment we find ourselves in, our energy and our actions do make a mark. I’ve seen coffee shop baristas pick out the best cookie for their customer. I’ve heard enthusiastic train conductors wishing everyone a pleasant day. I’ve seen a shop assistants help carry a mother struggling with her pram up the stairs. I’ve heard of people anonymously paying for others’ meals at restaurants. And there’s so many more similar interactions that are so small but make a huge difference. Energy is infectious – when you make someone feel good, they’ll want to do the same for others. Good vibes all around are down to each of us believing it’s up to us.

Kill with kindness

 
For various reasons, both unforgivable and understandable, we do not always treat each other the way we should. And sometimes when we witness an injustice or offence, we have an urge to seek some sort of revenge. But let’s not let revenge consume us. As much as we might hate it, we’ve sometimes got to be the bigger person. Sometimes we have to kill with kindness. Sometimes we have to avenge with success. Sometimes we have to forgive and forget. Where it might seem best to fight fire with fire, we’ll both still be burned. Instead of smoke, leave an air of kindness. It will linger and rub off on them.
