There’s that saying that says, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
And it’s 100 percent true!
Think about the most toxic person you know. Try to pinpoint what it was that irked you about them. Which red flag was the one that made you realize you had to walk away? Now think about someone you really like but try to understand what you like about them. Try to identify what it is that you love about them. What is it that makes you smile when you think about them?
It’s not one thing. Is it?
This is because it’s not what they did or said but rather how they made you feel.
Our reality is shaped by our experiences… and it’s exactly the same for everyone around us. The way we make people feel is the distinctive feature or characteristic that serves to identify us. So, no pressure people but also, isn’t it so damn important?!
“Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card and how you leave others after an experience with you becomes your trademark.”
I guess the legacy we leave is a choice we make… imagine if that choice was filled with kindness?
Remember that happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is the new success. Health is the new wealth, and kindness is the new cool.
