As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
There is so much truth to the statement "little things mean a lot" especially in this day and age when there is so much negativity, sadness, frustration, and meaningless violence. I'd be willing to bet each and every one of us, on a daily basis, could change a person's day in an instant. People tend to shy away from a person having a bad day or a person dealing with one or more of life's not so nice lessons.
Why do we tend to move ourselves away from someone, right in front of us, who may just need a small touch of kindness?
