True Colors

I think that there are not enough people who realize their power to make a difference.

This week I ended my job, opting for retirement instead. The kind words that have been spoken to me have touched me deeply. I did give my “all” to the position, and I did attempt to sincerely respond to anyone who had a need. The fruits of those efforts became visible to me this week. Apparently, I really did make some kind of difference!

I only did what I was expected to do. I was amiable, and I helped as I could. I tried to be kind, even to people who kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I tried, with sincerity, to practice the Golden Rule. The warmth that has been extended to me this week tells me that I did indeed impact some lives – at least a few.

I am, therefore, writing to spread this encouragement:  Do not be afraid to let others know the Real You. When you extend sincerity and kindness to others, it does indeed come back to you. They are simply two of those kinds of gifts that keep on giving…because they did indeed give back to me!
