Sometimes it’s hard to find a way to make a positive difference in the world around us. Our days are packed so full, from work to parenting, caregiving to volunteering, that we barely have enough time to breathe, let alone always summon our smiles and words that someone might need at a crucial moment.
With that, it’s not always easy to remember someone isn’t just their behavior or other things you see on the surface. We need to take that step back and look at the whole picture–the whole person. We need to understand what we bring to the situation. What lies beneath our own behavior?
Compassion and change start with each of us. This video shows us one way to do this. And I have to say, I am grateful to have been part of its creation with my company. From the first Aha! moment to the final edits, it was an exhilarating, challenging, hair-pulling, rewarding experience.
And I hope it helps someone today.
