Good Things Free For Giving

Since it is a Sunday, I am feeling quite good and thankful for all the things that are going on in my life. I realized that there are simply a lot of things we take for granted and so many things we can give to others that we do not give a second thought to.

What are these things, you ask? In a world of high prices and poverty, can people really afford to give? Of course we can. There are things we can give that can make others happy. If you read on, I will tell you the things I think we all should be giving each other.

Here is a list of small things that make big effects that we can just give out everyday:

  • A "Good morning!" One ex-colleague of mine remarked one time while we were on training how not a lot of people actually greet people they meet in the morning with that time-old greeting. Since then, I have made it a practice to greet people, "Good morning!" (with a smile of course) as often as I can. Sure enough, it makes other people smile and feel like they really can have a more pleasant morning.
  • Greeting elderly people. Elderly people often feel alone and left out in the everyday hustle and bustle of young'ns. Have a heart. Show those who are in their Golden Age some love by giving them some attention and greeting. No doubt you will warm their hearts.
  • Tell an older woman she looks lovely. I've found out that the older women get, the more concious they are with their appearance. They often feel like they are on a verge of becoming a withered fruit. Although she may not be quick to trust you, if you assure her that it is true, I am pretty sure it will make her day complete. See it for yourself.
  • The power of "Thank You!" Sometimes when service is given to us, we automatically assume that it is our right that they are serving us and that they should at least be honored that they have us as customers. Admit it! You've got "the customer is always right" written all over your face. You should keep in mind that even if they mess it up or do a good job, they still deserve at least a "thank you" for their efforts. Do it, and for sure you have earned a smile, or at least better service next time.
  • Share a smile. I may not be the perfect person to say this, but over the years I've learned that a smile can go a long long way. Of course, bad days are bad days, and sometimes one cannot simply just flash that blinding smile. But bear in mind, what if somebody else had a bad day and was scowling at you, you wouldn't like it one bit. Right?

These are but a few of the many things one can do. In the name of Kindness and Care, these gifts can have a great big impact and go a long way. Christmas is not the only time for giving. Give a little love and it all comes back to you..

Be nice kiddies! ;)

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
