30sec Tip: You will Forget Tomorrow The Kind Words You Say Today

PERHAPS YOU WILL FORGET TOMORROW THE KIND WORDS YOU SAY TODAY, BUT THE RECIPIENT MAY CHERISH THEM OVER A LIFETIME.

    Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

    An important part of our growth and motivation as people lies in contributing to the greater good, being part of something greater than ourselves.

    Here are ten little gestures, all of them easily within our grasp, that can spread goodwill in our own communities, as well as increase our own sense of mindfulness about the people around us and our relationship to them.
