Helping Others, Life in General, Quotes

Quick Quote- One Kind Word

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!

Science shows us that when you do a good deed for someone else, we feel a positive rush through our bodies and we are motivated to do it again. Doing good leads to people being happier in general. Imagine how happy our world would be if we all did something good for someone else every day. Comment on a friend’s new haircut, hold the door open for someone, pay it forward and buy a person coffee. Other things that make people happy and in turn make us feel good are to listen to a co-worker who is struggling with something, send a card to a friend you haven’t seen in a long time or send a quick “thinking of you” text. All of these kind gestures help others, but they also help you.

Why not go ahead and do something nice for someone today and see how it makes YOU feel! I bet you feel the rush.
