We’ve all heard the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. I remember as a kid being taught that and I have tried to instill this in my son. But what about saying ONE KIND WORD? One kind word can truly change that person’s day, but I want to look at this from a different perspective.
When I say something kind to someone or give them a compliment, do something nice for them, or smile at someone as I walk through the halls at work, it CHANGES MY DAY. Doing nice things for people, helping lift a person’s spirit- those things make us feel better. It gives us a sense of pride to help others and as I have stated in past posts, that “thing” does not have to be huge!
Why not go ahead and do something nice for someone today and see how it makes YOU feel! I bet you feel the rush.
