Transformation Tips Tuesday – The Word of the Day is Kind with Reiki Master, Donna McDine
The word of the day is KIND… Now More Than Ever with COVID-19 Worldwide
To be kind and to pass along willingly one’s expertise to the next person coming up through the ranks is an imperative way of paying it forward. It’s important to remember we were all a newbie at one time and feeling like a fish out of water. What a comfort it is for someone to receive your kindness with the simplest of statements, “you are doing just fine, keep up the great work.”
Several years ago, my daughters and I played tourist in NYC and visited the Brooklyn Bridge and Little Italy. After enjoying a scrumptious lunch, we headed across the street for dessert. The café was bustling with business, and it was apparent one of the waiters was new and being trained. Luckily for him, his training came before the San Gennaro Festival. His overwhelmed look was evident, and when we were leaving, I went to him and simply said, “You are doing great, don’t give up.”
He responded, with an astonished thank you, and we went about our day. Upon exiting the bakery, my daughter said, “Mom, that was so nice of you, you didn’t have to do that.”
My reply, “Always remember you will be the newbie at one time or another and the generous ‘atta boy’ can make your day.”
“Mom, you should have seen him. When you turned to leave, he actually looked like he was standing taller.”
Needless to say, without looking for anything in return, that statement from my daughter still makes my heart soar.
What do you do to be kind to those in your life or those you meet briefly?
Wishing you a splendid day of blessings. Please stay safe and well!
