“You can never do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can change someone’s day - and maybe their whole life...
• With a small kindness.
• Say “I love you” to each of your loved ones as soon and as often as possible.
• Help someone who is struggling to carry something.
• Say “good morning” or “good afternoon” to people around you.
• Hold a door for someone.
• Bring or pour coffee for your assistants.
• Say “Please,” and “Thank you," and really mean it.
• Allow a driver to merge into your lane.
• Take a stray shopping cart from the parking lot into the store, as you walk in.
• Bring some breakfast snacks to your office.
• Take time to give compliments about someone to their supervisor as you are shopping or traveling.
It will make people happy and you the happiest!!
