    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.

    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...

    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.

    The Butterfly Effect

    We learnt about the butterfly effect in class a little while back and how that one tiny flap of a butterfly's wings can cause an earthquake on the other side of the world... who would have thought that something so tiny (and apparently insignificant) could make such an impact...

    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...

    Thank You, Gentleman

    Today I was out on my lunch break, and I went to throw some trash in the bin on the street, and as I threw it the wind blew and my rubbish missed the bin even though I was right next to it.  A younger gentleman that looked haggard and toted a backpack walked past and...

    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.

    Made My Night

    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...

    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.

    More So

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

    Smiling At Someone New

    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.

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...
