“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”
The world is moving at such a breakneck speed that sometimes we forget the value of some simple things in life.
One of them is the act of common courtesy.
Every so often, we go through things such turbulent periods in our lives that seeing even a friendly smile can cheer us up simply because we haven’t seen it in a while.
Every time you go the supermarket or to see a movie, take just a second to return the courtesy a cashier is giving you.
Smile, ask them how they are just like they do.
It may not seem like much at the time. But to them it may mean the world after an array of unhappy customers or a long shift of work.
There have been several cases of attempted suicide in which the person who was about to kill himself or herself said one phone call or conversation stopped them.
Sometimes, a simple gesture can travel for miles on ahead even without us knowing it.
