Alongside our studies, jobs or careers, there can frequently be persistent pressure in our personal lives to always stay motivated or constantly pursue the next goal; being productive is often seen as the most significant sign of success in our lives.
What we say can have a tremendous impact. Words lead to beliefs. Beliefs lead to action. Action leads to change. And change leads to liberation. How we speak to ourselves, the way we talk to others and the thoughts and utterances that we deliver into the world have power.
Without knowing it, some people have been a source of strength and helped turn a difficult day into a bearable one by showing simple, thoughtful kindness. It can often be overlooked and not considered as having much impact — but kindness is powerful.
How we express love for someone can be as unique as we are. Some of us are physically affectionate, some are verbally affirming. Some reveal their love through thoughtfulness and small acts of kindness and care throughout the day. Some may rarely communicate it, but then say or do something profound every once in a while. Some may even seem to not show it at all.
