Bit of Happy #109: Just Right

25 Feb

“Sometimes someone says something really small, and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart.”
-Winnie Holzman

Have you ever experienced those moments in life when someone says something to you, and it’s exactly what you needed to hear in that moment? Sometimes I feel like there are angels on Earth that come and rescue me in my times of need. Who know all the right things to say to give me the hope and strength I need to carry on. And I love nothing more than to be able to return the same clarity to the people I care about most, and even strangers.

Give more than you take. And help more than need. If the world focused a little more on ‘give’ and ‘help’ and a little less on ‘take’ and ‘want,’ I think we would have a more gracious life with a much brighter future. Like the sun’s rays sifting through the pine trees, a compliment, words of advice or a kind gesture has the power to fill the empty place in someone’s heart. It has the power to bring hope, joy and reassurance in their time of doubt or hardship.

Kind words can be an irreplaceable gift. And sometimes those words are all a person needs to find their inner strength – their drive to keep fighting. To keep breathing. To keep living. To me, there’s no better sense of success than helping people find the light that was always there to begin with. I live for those moments.

Did today’s quote inspire you to reach out to others?

Has someone ever said the perfect thing just when you needed to hear it?
