We all want to be the best version of ourselves, helping others to learn and grow. Sharing our talents with others, being there to give support or a kind word, can really boost others confidence.
I have learnt that giving just a moment of your time, to help or understand another is incredibly rewarding. Whether it is helping them to read a book, paint a portrait or just to be there with a listening ear.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
This quote really resonates with me, I remember the way people make me feel, not necessarily how they did that, but that feeling inside of love, happiness or anger in some cases!
Working in the hospitality industry, getting to know lovely people, who believe you truly made their evening great, is really uplifting. Because I gave them a moment of my time for a conversation to get to know them better, help with directions or recommend the best local attraction, their kindness and thanks goes a long way with me, honestly it changes my day dealing with lovely people vs. Difficult people!
What does it mean to you to give?
