Share someone’s Life with compassion – Make Your Day Count!

Yesterday while working with a team of managers, one of them spoke up. He said: “I wish we all knew what makes each of us cry. Then perhaps we will be able to understand and appreciate each other better so that we will never push the other person to the point that he or she will break down and cry!”

Forget knowing what makes people cry, in today’s fast-paced world, while we ‘know’ many people, we understand very few of them – and that includes people that we work with on a daily basis or that we share our lives with! The reality is that the distances between us is, often times, not just physical and is, in fact, even inversely proportion to proximity! The one reason we don’t understand, appreciate or celebrate people around us is we have not actually made the time to sit down with them and share their lives with compassion.

We all understand that there’s great value in touching lives. But we interpret this as only bringing pleasure or comfort into the lives of people we love or doing charity that impacts the lives of people we pause to look at or care for. This need not be the only way of doing things. You can make each day count when you can view each of the people in your circle of influence with compassion. And know that people carry as much of their homes to work as they do carry work home. That behind each beating heart is a personal story. That story very often is of facing up to pain, grief and fear with courage and hope. That each individual is working harder to make things better despite what she or he is going through or faced with.

When you look at people with compassion you will find something beautiful is happening within you. You experience inner peace. You also start radiating a warm energy that soaks everyone that comes into contact with you. After all, in the end, your Life will have been meaningful, not for the number of people whom you have known and who have known you, but by the number of lives you touched and the difference you made to those lives!
