Todays prompt; In 300 years, if you were to be named patron saint of X, what would X be? Places, activities, objects – all are fair game
You know that smile you get one your face, that warm fuzzy feeling, and positive attitude you get when you have helped someone during your day? You might be in a rush, but you still hold the elevator door open for someone else to jump in, pick up someone’s dropped coins as they spill out all other the floor when you could have stood and watched, passed someone your napkin because they have sloshed their coffee, it’s the little thing.
They could be having an awful day, and while you good deed may go unnoticed by them at the time, they may reflect on it later and remember that there is kindness in our busy world, sometimes it passes you by unnoticed, because it’s the little things that count. A lot of little things make up one big thing which is the result of your day.
This good deed could make their day, pick them up and give them a new surge they were looking for.
But doesn’t it make you feel good too? Knowing you have helped someone, and that really it didn’t take much effort from you at all, except that it required some thought as to the fact that this person may have needed a helping hand.
We don’t broadcast these good deeds, we don’t need to really. But I think we all need to recognise that they happen and thoughts for others go along way. We know when we do it ourselves and we feel good from this, isn’t that encouragement enough to do it more often?
It’s the little things that count, the little things that create one big thing that make up your day.
