Leo Buscaglia wonders...

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."

Listen to my thoughts about Leo Buscaglia's inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about where I live in West Yorkshire (England!) - this time the video location is a rather grand-looking Huddersfield train station.

What I Wonder...




(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)


So, as I said in the video, there's a lot of truth in Leo's inspirational quote. In many ways, we measure our life - or at least our days - by the positive experiences of being touched, or smiled at, or listened to or complimented.

And quite often a compliment, for example, could come from a stranger - and it can completely transform our day, magically so.

So it's clear that we all understand the power of these 'small ways to connect' , and what difference it makes to our own lives.

Yes, it seems much less clear to us how we could actually be the person that initiated such contact.

A friendly un-assuming smile at a stranger...

Looking at a friend or partner with a fresh, appreciative eye, and making a positive, unexpected, compliment...

A hug to an old friend, rather than a stiff, unfriendly hand shake, or the empty gesture of an 'air kiss'...

All of these things we can do today, should we choose to do so; should we choose to live our lives in such a way as to make a difference to someone else.

It all sounds like a great way to live, to me anyway, and a great way for us all to take away our inevitable self-focus, if only for a minute.

What do you say? Are you up for a bit of what Leo Buscaglia is 'selling'?... :-) Do let me know, below, in the comments.

Thanks for reading,
Steve
