Remember in the movie Harvey? This is such a great line. When Elwood P. Dow ( Jimmy Stuart) says do you want to be “Oh so smart?” or “Oh so pleasant?” Which matters to you more.
Being kind to someone or being right?
There was a time in my life where it matter to be “oh so smart”. I think we can all identify with this. A need to be right. A need to be better or bigger than someone. Did it make a difference in someones day though, probably not. But when you make an effort to be kind, pleasant or loving, just think about the ripple effect it makes for everyone you meet. That is a true gift you can give someone.
Opportunities are everywhere to be kind. Give it a go. That’s making magic in your life today.
