    Yes, exactly!

    This morning I messaged a friend to tell her that my 6 year old son was trying to choose between visiting his grandma, and taking a float trip with me this weekend, and that he asked if she (my friend) would be there. After finding out that she was going, my son decided to go floating so he could see my friend. She was moved to tears by this and said that it made her feel so special to have him say that! I am so glad I reached out to her to tell her that. It’s easy to forget that even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference in someone’s day!

    Thanks Michelle! I think you’re right too, the guard may have mistaken it for sarcasm! I hadn’t thought of that before, but as much as they deal with, I bet that’s exactly it!

    This is one of my all time favorite videos. It’s called “Random acts of kindness caught on security cameras all over the world”

    I’ve seen it countless times and I have a strong emotional reaction every single time I watch it. If everyone used these examples as a way to live, we would all live in a happy world.

    What draws me is that I think that one of the most important things we can do as humans is to encourage other humans to not only live their lives in a grateful way, but encourage others to do so as well. Initiatives and groups like CGL and GL courses provide people with insight and direction on how to do exactly that. Just like “Pay it forward”, these things start with a small group, and grow larger, and I think this is the path to a better world. When we come across someone who is an advocate for these types of thought processes, and has the ability to lead others (like you Judy) I find it important to dive right in and see how I can be a part of something so awesome.

    I don’t think so. I’ve been in similar situations, particularly with mothers in public with young kids. I recognize the face of a frustrated mom quickly, having three boys under 6, it’s my own face plenty of times. So I’ve sometimes struggled with how to acknowledge these people in situations where they are already frustrated and probably not thinking clearly. Usually I say something like “Hang in there mama, I’ve been there” or just simply ask if there’s anything I can help with.

    I would like to believe that the guard will realize later that you were simply offering words of encouragement, and will realize her reaction was out of place. However, regardless of whether or not she does realize that, I still think you did the right thing.

    I sometimes wonder if it would be better to carry small business cards that simply say “Thank you for going above and beyond” to hand out in these situations. Or something of that nature.

    Great post Tresia! It’s awful to watch these scenes play out, and I know it must be completely gut wrenching to see it first hand, especially so close to home for you. Things seem to be more scary by the day in this world, and I think it is SO important for those of us who have the ability to let love and hope shine through, to spread that message to others. As long as there are still even a few people willing to see through the hate and animosity, we still have hope, and that’s definitely something to be grateful for. Prayers for Dallas, and all the lives affected by this recent tragedy.

    Hey everyone! My name is Roxi Nevin, and I’ve worked closely with Judy on Grateful Leadership social media and her blog for about a year. I work for IIL supporting virtual classrooms as well. I am a moderator here at the communications board, and am happy to help with any questions you might have. I look forward to seeing all of your posts, and welcome to the Center for Grateful Leadership!
