I Think That Even Small Gestures Are Significant

A place to share experiences that may be overlooked by most, but cherished by few 755 People

    I Can See It.

    I am very keen on peoples behaviour, I read every small insignificant gesture, in milliseconds, telling me the lie behind the fake smile, I feel body language intuitively and react on it without will. I think sometimes its better beiing blind to peoples behaviour

    Without A Doubt

    It really is the small gestures, and acknowledgements that mean the most. A smile, a wave, even a glance can make a huge difference. I wonder how many people truly understand this. Or do they just view it as pettiness? I've questioned this lately, and well...I honestly think that...

    Social Lubrication

    Sometimes it's not the grand, sweeping gestures which matter. A small, insignificant gesture can be the most surprising and the most valuable even if it's not obvious at the time.

    They Are Significant Because

    To you it may seem a small gesture, but to me it means the world.

    Better Than Words

    So small, but so significant...Those little gestures stay in my memory and I remember. I feel content when I recieve a kind gesture because, even that, can fill me up when Im empty. Even if I were to recieve a gesture from some random person with a kind soul, that will make me...

    You Never Know How You Can Effect Someone

    I remember in Middle School. I was going to a bad time in my life. The most important person in my life past away. I was taking it real hard. I stop dressing up, dancing, hardly spoke, and anti social. I was turning soon to be 13 and those are your awkward years cause of all the...

    That Little Something

    I find it is the small things which people do, the hug when you are down, the compliments when you do not feel good about yourself. The smile when noone else has all day. These are lovely so lets all keep doing so.

    Yesterday evening, I was sitting down at the table talking to my mother and son.  The phone rang and my daughter brought it to me.  I look at it strangely, I wasn't expecting a call.  Then she told me their name.  I roll my eyes and let  out a breath, thinking, "whats he...

    Even Just A Simple Smile.

    I believe a thank you can make you feel better. I have done some things for people who have never thanked me. I get annoyed but like I have said I believe in Karma. However some have done some things for me and I always thank them even if it's just a smile. A small gesture can...

    It's Especially The Small Ones....

    They're significant to me because they're the ones that go the most unnoticed but to me they are the most noticeable. If you can do something that makes me happy in such a subtle & discreet way, your an awesome person to me.

    When It's Gone It's Gone So Don't Miss It.

    Sometimes the small gestures are the most important but they are easily missed. People put who they are into the small things, the things they do, say write or in their look. If we don't see them then we miss the persons heart. You never know what you have till its too late. It...

    Smiling At Everyone...

    Me, I love smiling at everyone who i see, even walking down a street i'll smile at anyone who passes me and looks at me. The really sad thing is is when people don't smile back at me :( It only takes a second, and i always smile at them.

    More So

    than the big grand gestures .... Small gestures are MORE revealing, more significant and carry 'more weight' as far as I'm concerned :)

    Never underestimate the power of taking someone

    a cup of tea. Washing up for them. Doing their ironing. Sitting with their young ones so they can have a cuppa in peace. Chatting to an elderly neighbour for a few minutes. Calling an old friend you haven't seen in years. Walking your neighbours dog That kinda stuff.
