Small Things

  It does not take much of anything really to brighten someone’s day; a kind word instead of a criticism, a heartfelt smile instead of judgement.  The gesture may seem nothing at all to us, yet to someone needing just that small light, it could be everything.

We never know what people will do with what we feel moved to give or share.   In fact, that shouldn’t worry or concern us at all  If we feel a need or and urge to speak a kind word , or offer a smile, then THAT is ours to do.    That is what we are responsible for.  What someone else does with what we say or do, is not ours to worry about – that is THEIR’S.

“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.” ~ ANON
