As you move through the world you will have touched people. Some you will know. Family. Friends. Colleagues. Loved ones.
These people will recall you. They will feel connected. Your life and theirs inextricably linked through a bond. Maybe the bond is tangible, physical. Maybe it is emotional. Maybe it is transparent, maybe it is just there in the system, felt in the ether.
Others you have touched, you may not even realise it to be so.
In the midst of your own hectic, muddled life, you may have inadvertently dropped little traces of you on your journey. Like a dusting of you, cascading in your wake. Equally you may have deliberately acted, not seeking gain, not cognisant perhaps of the lasting impact or significant consequences that result for that person, or those close to them. You may have done this through…
An impromptu smile
A comforting word
A timely glance
A small act of kindness
Listening when someone needed to be heard
Witnessing someone’s truth
A small but critical thank you
A heartfelt hug
A positive thought
With fairy-like footprints, we invisibly stand in people’s lives, often unaware of those we have touched.
But they remember. They know. They thank you.
One thought on “where have you left traces of yourself?”
Steve this is lovely thank you Yvette
