A little more kindness, a little less creed,
A little more giving, a little less greed,
A little more smile, a little less frown,
A little less kicking a man when he’s down,
A little more ‘we’, and a little less ‘I’,
A little more laugh, a little less cry,
A little more flowers on the pathway of life,
And fewer on graves at the end of the strife.
Often the changes that need to be made to make a big difference to our lives are little ones. The above verse gives a good guide to a happier healthier life path. I was always told “manners cost nothing”; being courteous and polite brings positive karma to your life. These words give substance to how we could improve our daily life, not only for ourselves but for those around us, and none of them cost a penny! Hindsight is double edged, so doing the best you can for yourself and others now, is better than leaving it until it is too late to make a difference.
Have a happier day, smile, laugh and show a caring attitude to those around you. ‘What goes around, comes around’, and you never know when you might be the one in need of the kindness of others to help you through your day.
