"Just as our acts of kindness can create good effects in the world around us and abroad, so too can our acts of negativity and unthoughtful ways"
Everything you do matters. Everything you don't do matters. Each choice, each form of action and non-action has it's effects. Whether these effects are good or bad depends on you. A simple smile can truly change someone's life. You never know what someone is going through at any given moment, or how they will react to your actions or lack thereof, and although we cannot save the world every single second of our lives, we sure can do our best not to make it any harder for others and ourselves.
It takes a conscious effort on our part to act in kindness towards others and even courage and strength to show kindness towards people who can be difficult to deal with. However, it is in our best interest to practice this kindness each and every day, hour, and moment. The more beauty we send out into the world, the more beautiful our own world becomes. The kinder we are to others, the kinder others will be to the people in their own world, and so on.
Just as our acts of kindness can create good effects in the world around us and abroad, so too can our acts of negativity and unthoughtful ways, which can be hurtful, whether intentional or non-intentional. This is why it is so important to remain conscious of our thoughts, feelings, actions and the way we handle all of them. We need to study our emotions and behavior patters and try as best we can to cultivate our best selves. We have to remember that our feelings aren't the only feelings that matter in the world. And that we are effective in this world whether good or bad, whether we like it or not. There is no avoiding this. There are only two options, and that is to be either a positive effect or a negative one.. the choice is always ours.
