I am grateful for the small yet kind gestures of others. May it be a simple “Hello, how are you?” or, a courteous move of lending someone a plunger when the toilet bowl is clogged with pepper towels, small yet kind gestures are, oftentimes, underrated.
There is a common thread that has been consistently weaving through human histories; regardless of our century, year, date or place of birth, we all have an innate tendency to show off of whatever that we consider to be superior than the average standard of excellence. From our homes to our brands of clothing, from our vacation spots to even our childbirths, the number of overt braggers has increased exponentially in this age of social media.
Although it is understandable to be overly exciting and flashy about all the fame and richness that our hard work has garnered for us; however, I do, at times, wish that the content of our boastful talks could have more to do with the small yet kind gestures that we have given to others or that others have given to us.
