remember this…

There are always those sayings that are so brilliant, I wish I came up with it myself.

Be kinder than necessary. Everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

I don’t know who said it, but I think it’s always something to keep in mind. Too often we are in such a rush that we can be rude to everyday people like the cashier at the grocery store or the waitress at dinner. Some people hide their battle wounds easier than others – you just never know if they’re hurting or not – so it never hurts to be a little bit more gentle.

So take your time. Smile. Ask them how they are and genuinely care about the answer. Say please and thank you (just like we learned in kindergarden) and keep in mind that you could be meeting someone on the worst day of their life.
