Develop a full awareness of the world around you by being attentive to the ways of your friends and acquaintances.

When you really listen and observe, you are taking true notice of someone’s presence and will just know when a sensitive word or act of kindness can make a big difference to any feelings of isolation or fear of living that can so easily crush the bravest of spirits.

Always take the opportunity to let the light of loving compassion shine from your soul to bring hope and comfort to every heart.
