    I’ve learned that people will forget what you

    said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    It's pretty easy to do... smile, laugh, compliment others. Give it a try, spread a little joy today and watch what happens. Even when I'm dark I don't go around taking it out on others. I fake it well and that carries over into my real world. Okay on here I vent because this is...

    He started to sing his Christmas carols to me

    at the mall parking lot, when I stopped to listen he became shy. I told him to sing again but he didn't. Instead, he just kept on smiling. I gave him money as gift. I just love his smile, so priceless for me, so I took these pics. His name is Jankel. I kissed him and he kissed...

    The world could be a much better place to live if people could just remember we are all human, all have red blood and feel hurt!  So lets all start being kinder to each other!

    I'm Addicted To The Results

    Here is something most people that know me now, don't know about my past. I used to be as angry and mean as a little troll, always running my mouth and spewing toxcicity. Not always mind you, it's just that if I felt people crossed me or I disagreed with something I would react...

    Life Is Unpredictable

    I was on work Friday and the place was really quiet. My co - worker was planning her wedding and I was sharing some ideas with her. All of a sudden we heard a loud crash coming form the steps. I go up and ran to the noise and there i saw a woman lying upside down the steps. She...

    There are two passports. One is a paper one with many a stamp. The other is the way you look at the people.

    Ah, But What Kind... :)

    Kindness becomes the basis for understanding.  Allow all other avenues to fail before deviating from the default mode of kindness.

    If u do good to them

    that does mean they will do the same. I come to realise Everyone is different. The less you expect the less chances to get hurt. I helped her in her hard times and I laughed in her good times. As soon as she reached at that point, she also left people behind. People forget...

    I Am This Kind Of A Person

    I do believe that if you don't have something positive or helpful to say then don't bother to say anything.  I try to be kind and helpful to people and although it happens very very rarely, if someone is unpleasant it really shocks me. Perhaps I've led a sheltered life! lol...

    Fundamental ...

    Being kind to others is a fundamental - I can't imagine why anyone would want to be any other way.  If you are a happy, content person, then you can share those feelings with others, giving of yourself by being pleasant, doing small things for someone, not taking them for...

    I Think That Kindnes Begets Kindness

    To me, believing in being kind falls under the tenet "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."  If you want people around you to be kind (which comes naturally to most of us, anyway, I believe), it doesn't hurt to start off by doing so yourself.  It...

    Kindness Goes a Long Way

    The kindness you give always comes back around to you. Even when your kind to those that are rude to you, you notice a difference in how people treat you. Yes, some people try to take advantage of it, but overall I think even the meanest people respond positively to a little...

    Why do some women get offended

    when I hold a door for them? I held the door for a woman and her child at the gas station earlier and she looked at me and said " I got it, i don't need a man to hold doors for me". Well, i was trying to be nice and look where it gets me. This isn't the first time a lady has...

    Be Good=)

    I believe that as much as possible, we must be good (in the right way and not too much). The world is full of crap, but we must not add up to that. We leave a mark in the lives of everyone we meet, so i guess, it's just right that we leave a good mark.

    But not nice, for those of you

    who watch Shark Tank. "Meanness" is often what they need, even if they don't like it and it makes them dislike you. The world is full of nice people who care about others, but mean people who care about others are rare, so I usually decide to step in for them.

    It Doesn't Hurt

    If you believe in Karma, be kind. When you do great things for others, great things will happen to you. It's a very important lesson I teach my kids.
