We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.

Little things

So yesterday I complimented a fellow shopper in the supermarket and felt like a complete idiot while doing it. I turned into the canned food aisle and there was a woman who was obviously having a rough day. So I took a deep breath and got it over with: That haircut looks so great on you. Which it did. Totally true. And it was like I had given her money, her reaction was surprise and then a very pleased smile as she thanked me and walked away a little happier than before. The idiotic feeling faded and I went back to my shopping feeling just great. It's nice to find out that such a small thing can still make a difference, to both the giver and recipient.
Today I want to start a habit of drinking more herbal tea and water throughout my day. Buh-bye soda and wine.

  2. Oh yeah.... "Good morning!" These 2 little words at any time of the day, especially in the evening, always catches someone's attention and more than often, a smile, rather than a frown. Yup, it is amazing how something which may seem small and simple to us can make a big difference to someone else. Keep it up! Remember, "you can SMILE when you can't say a word..." - love you mucho!!!! mom
