|Painted by Michelangelo, and taken from the Sistine Chapel, this image shows the hand of God reaching out to Adam.|
Let me explain.
I've just finished reading 'The woman who went to bed for a year' by Sue Townsend. I wont spoil it for you if you want to read it, and its not quite as self-explanatory as it sounds. Its a great book though, very witty and insightful, so do have a read.
Anyway, in the novel, two characters begin talking about the greatest human attribute. They conclude that its 'simple kindness' and quite honestly, I couldn't agree more.
In the many small and simple actions we partake in daily, we are reaching out to others in positive ways that we may not be aware of.
A thank you.
A cup of tea ('cause we all know that is the solution to everyones problems!)
And maybe some slightly bigger things too...
Sending a text message.
Giving up your seat on the train or the bus.
Lending someone your favourite dress.
Buying someone a drink.
Asking someone whats on their mind and listening to what they say.
You get the picture.
The way forward.
