Note to self: Every person you meet is carrying a burden, whether seen or unseen. I will not add to that burden. I will be a gentle spot in their day today. ~ Queenisms™
Burdens terrible and small are all around us. That clerk that didn’t smile may be worried about her child in daycare. That crabby driver ahead of you at the stop sign may be terrified about where her next meal is coming from. That person who brushed by you abruptly may be rude or they may be lost in thought about a dying loved one. You’ll never know. So put on a smile, wear patience like a coat, slow the rushing down and be a gentle spot in the world. Start a ripple of kindness. Go.
