Is the title of today's inspirational message
On his deathbed,Aldous Huxley reflected on his
entire life's learning and then summed it up in
seven simple words
"let us be kinder to one another ".
All too often we believe that in order to
live a truly fulfilling life we must achieve some
great act or grand feat that will put us on the front
covers of magazines and newspapers. Nothing
could be further from the truth. A meaningful life is
made up of a series of daily acts of decency &
kindness which adds up to something great over
the course of a lifetime.
Everyone who enters your life has a lesson to
teach & a story to tell. Every person you pass
during the moments that make up your days
represents an opportunity to show a little more of
the compassion & courtesy that defines your
humanity. Why not start being more of the person
you truly are during your days & doing what you
can to enrich the world around you????? In my
mind, If you make even one person smile during
your day or brighten the mood of even one
stranger , your day has been a worthwhile one.
" kindness quite simply is the rent we must pay
for the space we occupy on this planet
Become more creative in the ways you show
compassion to strangers. Paying the toll for the
person in the car behind you , offering your seat
on the subway and being the first to say hello are
great places to start.
