“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as you can.” – John Wesley
In todays day and age it is hard to find good people. That doesn’t mean that they are not out there. It just means that we a.) stopped looking for them, or b.) we are so caught up in our own little “worlds” that we don’t take time to notice the little/big things. The simple kind act of holding the door open for someone barely gets recognized by the person who you held the door open for. Not even a “Thank you!” Working in customer service it is always nice to see when a customer pays it forward (paying for the person in line behind them, even when the person is a complete stranger.) The downfall is when you get to that one person in that paying it forward chain that obviously makes enough money. Those are the customers that don’t even smile at the fact that they received free food, to make matters worse they just end the chain of paying it forward. A smile can go a long way. At times the only thing that a person who is having a bad day needs is for someone to smile at them and or someone to make them smile. There is an unlimited amount of ways for you to do good in this cut throat world that we live in.
Goal: Hold that door open for someone, even if it makes you late for work. Smile at someone who needs a little perk to their day. Pay it forward (doesn’t have to be with money, could be doing something nice for someone and in return ask them to do something nice for someone else.) One simple act of kindness sparks a chain reaction that goes on and on.
