The ripple.

3 years, 7 months ago

I was driving through the Savemart parking lot and I stopped to let this elderly man walk in front of me. As he passes he gives me a gnarly stare down. I was perplexed. Had I offend him? I wanted to ask him, "Do you bite your thumb at me Sir!?" I didnt. :)

That’s when I decided that I was going to change the world. I leaned out the window and said very politely "Have a nice day Sir." he looked back at me with a blank face. I’m sure it stunned him. I’m a young woman with 35% of my upper body covered in tattoos. I’m sure he was baffled that someone like ‘me’ would be so polite. Then after is sunk in he smiled and shook his head. And that’s how it starts. I took his negative energy and smothered it with positivity. It’s just that easy folks.  Now think about it. He left that parking lot with a smile and the next person he sees will see that. They will get that from him. It’s a ripple effect. 

As I stated before in the about me portion, I am a full on believer in you get what you give. Imagine if everyone snuffed out negativity at least once a day. Not only would that positive energy have an immediate effect but it serves as a long term effect as well. At some point you will get what you have given. That positive energy will find you again. It’s full circle.

So I challenge everyone to make the conscious decision to be aggressively positive at least once a day. Choose your moment and try and snuff out a negative. And please do share! :)

I agree. No one enjoys having other people being negative towards them, so why would you be negative towards someone else? It doesn’t make sense! But it seems like a lot of people do it anyways. Just because insanity is normal doesn’t mean its right.

Being Positive. Fuck ya :D

That is awesome, Krystal, I am totally down with that. All the small things… The best way we can make the world better is to make our own immediate world better. Your transfer of positive has a trickle down effect, now that guy may transfer it, like an awesome disease.
Smash stereotypes and break down perceptions.
I always say hello to someone if they but look at me, especially if they look cranky.

tollbooths are another easy place to give somebody 5 kind words that they might not hear otherwise. opportunities are all over the place once you start looking for them.
