When life get hectic, we tend to ignore the small details of life which make life beautiful. A friendly nod or smile can brighten the day. A kind word of encouragement or appreciation can help lift a spirit. A small gesture of holding the door for the person behind. We often think these are small gestures which don't make a difference... yet they do.
When you think about yourself, what small gestures do you do for you? What small acts of kindness to yourself help you push forward with a little more strength? When you are feeling down, what words of encouragement flow through your thoughts?
As we reflect upon the past events in our lives, we may be surprised to find the small details that appeared insignificant by another, are significant to us. A stranger, who spoke kind words when we were having a hard day. The impact on our lives, by the small details others have shared can be quite profound. Yet, to them the most likely will not recall. They most likely would just blow it off as an everyday occurrence.
Isn't it fascinating how a small detail can be so impactful in one life and so insignificant in another? Never underestimate the impact we can make in this world with small acts of kindness, done on a consistent basis. Let it become a part of who you are. Breathe it in and give it life to become so natural, you no longer think about it.
