You have a responsibility.
You’re a good person AND you’re probably not showing up as big as you could be. When was the last time you took your “Good-ness” to the next level? I’m not saying you have to brag about it. It’s just that I think we all could be that much better to other humans. In this week’s Wednesdays With Wayne, I’ve got a great story to tell you. It restores faith, just a little, in our humanity.
A few days ago, our youngest daughter was at an event in town. Her wallet was left on the trunk of a car while she juggled other items. And after all were packed up and she drove off, she realized what had happened. Returning to where they had been, they searched the street up and down. The wallet, her wallet with her ID, vital paperwork, and cash… it was all gone.
My wife encouraged her to call the police (non-emergency line) to report that she had lost it and to ask if they could please contact her if, by some odd chance, it might show up at some point. To her surprise, it had already been turned it. It was waiting for her.
When she got to the police station, she found that everything – EVERYTHING – was still in it. She was so grateful and relieved. The police told her that they weren’t sure how hers had gotten there, but a homeless man in town had turned in other wallets complete with cash.
Two thoughts –
First: How many people in town lose their wallets?
Second: How likely are we to judge others based on their social status, what they wear, or how they look?
And from that comes these thoughts for all of us to remember: The world could use a little more kindness right now. The world needs YOU to have a voice – the voice of reason, the voice of compassion, the voice of right.
Your “right” might be different than someone else’s. You’re here. You’re reading this. That means you’re among other like-minded people who want to do better in the world.
What is the cost of doing right?
What is the value of kindness?
That’s it. Share it. Be a bigger, kinder you.
We need to be Human-Kind.
Take that one with you and make it bigger. Share it.
See you next time.
Until then, Keep Making Your Magic™!
