[Relationships] Be A Rainbow In Someone Else’s Cloud

Be a Rainbow In Someone Else's Cloud - Maya Angelou

Be a Rainbow In Someone Else’s Cloud.

 ~ Maya Angelou

It takes so little to brighten someone else’s day.

Yet it can leave them feeling happy for a moment, an hour, a day, or give them a sweet memory for life.

And it makes you feel pretty awesome, too.

Here are some ideas for being your own little rainbow:

  • Ring the supervisor of the salesperson who gave you great service
  • Compliment the barista who made your yummy coffee
  • Take the trouble to notice something your spouse did for you – and thank them for it
  • Ask that friend who was uncharacteristically quiet if everything is ok
  • Tell someone you care about that you think they’re swell 😉
  • Smile at the people in your office, gym, or other regular haunt
  • Send a note to a sick friend
  • Buy a cupcake for a sad friend
  • Offer to help a stressed or struggling friend (in a way that feels comfortable, not a way that makes you stressed)
  • Forgive or stop holding a grudge against someone who hurt you.

What other ideas do you have?

Please share them!
