Why Simple Gestures Matter

Written by Alex:

Can a simple gesture such as saying hello, thank you or helping an old person cross the street make a difference? I believe it can. Especially in the current society where many people want to get as much as they can while making as little effort as possible. In order to reach their short-term and superfluous goals, they are interested in learning how to corrupt, manipulate and take advantage of others. Collaborating and sharing seem like dirty words. And those who advocate for them are seen as weak and soft.

Nevertheless, we can’t complain about others if we behave the same. That is why small, simple gestures matter. You never know how big impact you will make. Next time, when you ask someone how they are doing, mean it. Notice how often your mind wanders away when someone talks to you. Try to be present and listen.

Is it just me or the whole society that suffers from short attention span? Is it a side-effect of spending too much time on social media and our mobile phones instead of talking to somebody in person or reading a book? Instead of focusing on showing off and comparing ourselves to others, we should try to connect and relate to one another.

  • When you wake up, find something to be grateful for. It can be your family, health, your partner or just the fact of being alive.
  • Smile or say hello to a stranger without expecting anything in return.
  • Help someone open the door or carry their heavy bag.

Even if these gestures won’t make you wealthy, they will make you feel better. If we all make one simple gesture a day, we could change the World, don’t you think?

Croyez vous qu’un simple geste tel que dire bonjour, merci ou aider une personne âgée à traverser la rue peut-elle faire une différence? Moi je le crois possible. Surtout dans notre société actuelle où beaucoup de gens veulent obtenir le plus possible avec le moindre effort. Afin d’atteindre leurs superflus objectifs à court terme, ils se focalisent à corrompre, manipuler et tirer profit des autres. La collaboration et le partage semblent des gros mots. Et les êtres qui les préconisent sont à leurs yeux des faibles ou des personnes trop sensibles.

Nous ne pouvons pas nous plaindre des autres, si nous nous comportons de la même manière. C’est pourquoi les petits gestes simples sont importants. Vous pouvez pas imaginer l’impact que vous allez avoir en les réalisants. La prochaine fois, quand vous demandez à quelqu’un comment se porte-t-il, pensez le vraiment. Remarquez combien des fois votre esprit vague ailleurs quand quelqu’un vous parle. Essayez d’être présent et d’écouter.

Lorsque vous vous réveillez, trouvez toujours quelque chose de quoi être reconnaissant. Cela peut être votre famille, être en bonne santé, votre partenaire ou simplement le fait d’être en vie.

Souriez ou dites bonjour à un étranger sans attendre quoi que ce soit en retour.

Aidez quelqu’un en lui ouvrant la porte ou en lui portant un sac lourd.

Même si ces gestes ne vous rendent pas riches, ils vous feront sentir mieux. Si nous faisons tous un geste simple par jour, nous pourrions changer le monde, n’est-ce pas?

    So many good points. I do think social media is a problem, everyone seems so glued to their phones instead of paying attention to the “Live” people around them. One thing I try to do is compliment people if I like what they are wearing when I’m out shopping. Small things like saying “Thank You”, holding open doors, offering to take someone’s shopping cart to the cart corral make all the difference in the world.

    I think sometimes we are so wrapped up in our own little world that we fail to recognize our surroundings. Small gestures do make a difference.

    Well said, pretty lady! I used to teach my students that gifts come in all kinds of packages. They were all desperately poor but I would tell them that some of the best gifts are free…a hug, a smile, helping someone carry a heavy load.

    I linked up my bucket list post because on it I have committed myself to doing some small getures of kindness this summer. Thank you for the link-up.
