“The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.” -Leo Buscaglia
Imagine other cultures: Notice the workings of power & privilege in your culture… bring awareness to it… attempt to change this.
Put your phone away while in the company of others.
Take flowers or treats to the nurses’ station at your nearest hospital.
Whether it’s the school nurse, looking out for your kids; the hospice nurse, taking care of your elders; or the overworked ER nurse that takes the time to calm your nerves in the middle of the night- nurses are like guardian angels in scrubs!
