Quote Challenge : Day 2 of 3

Soumya from Life of Leo has nominated me for the 3 Quote Challenge. Today, I share my favourite quote for Day 2.

This is something that I have experienced so many times. A kind word by a friend, a warm smile by a co-passenger or just a patient ear has done wonders to my day. It is true that one small, thoughtful gesture can make a big difference in someone’s day/life. It can can have a bigger effect than we could ever imagine.

I remember reading this on Corinne’s blog…A man who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, left a suicide note “I’m walking to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.” Sadly, no one smiled! This is something that will stay with me for a long long time. Wish, somebody had smiled at that man, that day!

Also, I believe in the law of karma, which says that what goes around comes around – and with kindness it really does. Research has proven that being kind to others increases our own levels of happiness as well as theirs. So, keep on increasing the karma points in your life and encourage someone who needs it, be generous with compliments, say something nice to someone, be someone’s cheerleader… and make a huge impact on someone’s life.

Thank you Soumya for nominating for this awesome challenge.  And now I nominate Genevive, Rajlakshmi and Ma’am Usha Menon. Looking forward to read your take on this challenge!

  1. As there is also a saying, ‘ a kind word will keep you warm for 3 winter months ‘ . Sometimes motivation is discovered at unusual places. Good one.

  2. I am in awe of people like Ziglar and Bach who, among others, made the most profound truths sound so simple and doable. This is one such quote. It’s also something I sincerely believe and try to follow. I certainly hope I have some people who will smile at me when the chips are down. Beautiful choice for the quote, Shilpa.

    • True. Their words are so impactful and so profound too. The world is more beautiful because of lovely people like you, Shailaja. Keep rocking! ♥

  3. \A very beautiful quote indeed. The words ”encourage someone who needs it, be generous with compliments, say something nice to someone, be someone’s cheerleader… and make a huge impact on someone’s life.” are so powerful . They sum up the gist of the quotation.
    Thank you for nominating me.

    • Oh yes. These small little acts do cant take much time and cost nothing too but can make a BIG difference in somebody’s life. It is my pleasure and thrilled that you have taken up this challenge too. Thanks Ma’am 🙂

  4. I love Zig. He is a really great guy and an amazing speaker. I have had the opportunity to meet him several times when I lived in Dallas. I agree that being nice to others is highly beneficial not only to ourselves but everyone around us as well. If everyone would make just a little extra effort every day, the world would be a much better place.

    • Wow! You have met and listened to Zig several times!! That’s awesome, Shawn! Agree with you completely. These small little acts of kindness are very powerful and can make a whole lot of difference to someone’s life.

    • That is truly a tragic tale. Feel very sad for that person!
      True, wish we all go out of our way to spread joy to everyone who crosses our path. 🙂

  5. I can testify that smiles change a mood with children. I am a childcare provider for the last 20 years and it never ceases to amaze me when a child arrives with a frown until I smile or compliment them. Pure magic 🙂

  6. It’s so true… You never what a simple gesture can do…And even I remember the post of Corinne’s about the man who jumped off the Golden Gate bridge…yes, small, inconsequential things actually impact the most…Beautiful quote needless to say Shilpa

    • Oh yes, small things matter! Usually we think that our problems are the worst and biggest. If only we take a moment to notice and be kind to people around us, realize that just like us, they also have their own battles that they’re fighting! Thanks Nabanita. Glad you like it 🙂

    • Thanks Genevive for accepting the challenge. Looking forward to read your quotes 🙂
      Did I tell you that you inspire me. Love the work you are doing for the society! Proud of you ♥

    • Yes, it is indeed sad that he didnt get a smile, which costs nothing to anybody! Thanks Susan, glad you liked it.
