Believing In Others

walkers.jpgFrom today's Quote of the Day:

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.

Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit."

— ee cummings

We have opportunities every single day to encourage and value others. I'm reminded again and again just how powerful our encouragement of others can be.

The simplest smile and warm "how are you today" might be the ripple which changes someone's day for the better. The constant high value I choose place on relationships may be the ripples which change lives forever.
