Real power is not found in the brute strength of a body builder, nor in the mind of a dictator. Its is not found in the underpinnings of the corporate world, nor in the boardrooms of government.
Where then does real power dwell?
You will feel it in a tender reassuring touch.
You will hear it in the honesty of a kind word.
You will see it on the face of a person who is lending a listening ear.
You will find it in the compassionate gentleness of a smile from someone who cares.
Why are these acts so powerful?
They have the potential to turn another life around.
You just never know when a simple act of kindness can make a penetrating impact on a person in need of gentle recognition.
Who has made an impact on you lately?
Who have you reached out to with a kind gesture?
ps. Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends.
