You drop a pebble or stone into a lake and you watch as the water begins to ripple. It spreads outward reaching farther than you would have imagined. The effects of that one pebble reach the shore around the whole lake.
Imagine the world to be that lake and you are that pebble. What would your world look like?
You see, everything we say and do has an effect on other people. And it not only touches the person we are in direct contact with but it also spreads to everyone who is witness to what is being said or done. As a result, we then see in the world a reflection of what we are feeling and thinking.
If I were to perform an act of kindness towards you, how would you feel? You’d feel good wouldn’t you? It would remind you to connect with that place within that knows you are loved and appreciated and probably worthy of such a loving gesture.
And what happens when you feel worthy, loved and appreciated? You want to be the best you can be which may include directing an act of kindness or loving gesture toward someone else. When you do so, someone else will connect with their own true self and want to do something nice for someone else as well. And so on and so on. This is how the ripple effect works.
Not only that but the more positive kind things you do, the better you feel about yourself. And the better you feel about yourself, the more kind things you want to do.
It’s a simple and easy way to start feeling good today!
Through the week this week, why not create The Ripple Effect. Start doing random acts of kindness for others and see if it just doesn’t make you feel great!
And please share with me, either here in the comment section below, or by email your experiences.
With love and kindness
