Maybe sometimes we need to receive a gift before we know how to give one?
On my way to a meeting, with lots on my mind, I bumped into one of my neighbours.
In exchanging a few quick words, she gave me a boost.
A boost which kept me smiling for much much longer than it took her to say them.
It’s easy to forget how much of a difference you can make to someone’s day with a few carefully chosen words.
And sometimes you need to experience getting the benefit before you remember to spread a little happiness yourself.
I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating one of my favourite little quotes: ‘Happiness is like jam. You can’t spread it without getting some on yourself.’
Spread a little today.
