There’s nothing like overlooking a canyon and hearing the sound of rushing water, to awaken the senses – Monica

Do we have the power to make the world a better place?  You may not believe it, but sometimes simple things can make a big difference in “this thing called life.”

Five simple things to try today

  1. Say hello to a stranger.   
  2. Hold the door open for someone. 
  3. Give up your seat on the subway/train/bus to someone who may need it (such as a pregnant woman – I know I would have appreciated it when I was pregnant, but of course no one offered me a seat).
  4. Give someone in need a hand.
  5. Give your friend or family a friendly pat on the shoulder to let them know you are there for them.
