You Never Really Know

There is a belief that a small change can produce a ripple effect; leading to bigger changes in the universe that we may not be aware of. I am certainly a firm believer in the energy we put out into the world; that by focusing on appreciation, kindness and thoughtful intentions, we send out a ripple effect. That when we focus on feeling settled within, we give others around us permission to do the same. I came across a saying by Nikki Banas which speaks to just that:

“You never really know the true impact you have on those around you.

You never know how much someone needed that smile that you gave them.

You never know how much your kindness turned someone’s entire life around.

You never know how much someone needed that long hug or deep talk.

So don’t wait to be kind.

Don’t wait for someone else to be kind first.

Don’t wait for better circumstances or for someone to change.

Just be kind, because you never know how much someone needs it.”

– Nikki Banas

Or for that matter, when you might :)
