Be Kind don’t Whine

When someone is having a pretty rotten day, it’s pretty much a sure thing they will take it out on others. It’s the easiest thing in the world to release our frustration and anger to or on other people. But the bad thing about that is, it only sets off a chain reaction of negativity. Let’s say for instance, you’re at a restraunt with your family, and your service is pretty crappy. Your first reaction will be to not leave a tip. I know, I use to be a waitress. I remember this one night, it was super busy and I had this one table giving me a really hard time. I was going to college at the time, I had 2 big tests the next day I had to study for and it was already getting late. I was overwhelmed! To make matters worst, this particular table was giving me such a hard time. They kept me running so much I barely had time to check on my other tables, and when I would check on my other tables, they complained. They threatened to not leave me a tip and all that good stuff. By that point I ended up going off and nearly in tears, let’s just say they apologized and left me a pretty good tip. My point is, it is so much easier to be mean than nice. It’s easier to be spiteful than to just shrug it off. We never know what another person is going through, so just because they are being hateful or not “doing their job properly”, give the benefit of the doubt and do the hardest thing possible and be kind. Who knows, maybe your small act of kindness will be the thing that makes their day turn around. Or “turn their frown upside down”. Sorry, I had to say it. Think of it this way, would you rather spread hate and anger, or happiness. I know I would rather walk around and say good morning to happy people than scruges, but don’t worry, if you happen to be the scruge I will still cheerfully say good morning to you. Just remember, it may seem so much easier and fulfilling to spitefully “teach someone a lesson”. But, the only truth in that is it’s just easier. It maybe hard to swallow the huge negative pill and force a smile on your face and “shrug it off”. But, it’s totally worth it when you show love and spread love. Much love to all!
