A Simple Note
I recently received an email that stopped me in my tracks and made me realize just how much I have changed as a person...
Your thoughtfulness is a gift I will always treasure. I am very much grateful for that kind and warm approach you gave on the call.
A couple of years ago, I never would have received an email such as this. The Peggy Romero I was then, didn't live with presence. She was always in a hurry, trying to get the next thing done. She certainly would not have been listening or understanding of a Customer Service Representative from Amazon... I hate to admit it, but the Peggy Romero I was wouldn't have even cared what the rep was saying... only that the situation was handled and handled quickly.
I realize for many of you this may mean nothing; but for me it is a momentous occasion! I am blessed by this simple note expressing her gratitude. It reveals the way we are in this world. We aren’t always nice; we aren’t always kind. We certainly are not patient, unless we are aware of what we're doing. I didn't do anything outstanding or outside of the ordinary, I was just kind and respectful to a customer service girl who was trying her best and not able to accommodate me very easily. Unfortunately, this shows that most people do not treat her the way we should. It was outside what she expected, and she thought enough about it that she actually sent me a thank you note.
You guys, this is a thank you note for being nice. Can we decide to just be nice? Be good. Be kind. I have changed and I know you can too. Practice makes perfect. Here is a passage that caught my heart several years ago. I decided I wanted to go around doing good too! I am committed to it. In the big things and the small. This little thank you tells me that it is working! I am going around being good to people.
Acts 10:38 And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
I hope we will all take a moment every morning and purposefully connect to our heart, to our true self, to the person we really want to be. Decide to show kindness and compassion to everyone we meet and everyone we see every day. This would change the world. It would lift us up. Put a smile on our faces.
Can you imagine? You know smiles are contagious, kindness is contagious. A little love is like a breath of fresh air. Just consider this post. I was nice to her, she brought it to my attention. This made me so happy, it raised my energy. If you are reading this it will probably make you smile, so now I'm bringing the higher vibration to your attention. And you may be kind to someone else. Hold a door, a wink, a nod of approval. It is just so easy to be a blessing. This, my friends, is how we create a shift in the planet.
God bless you, have a great day!
Let’s try to remember to live every day on purpose.
