“I look upon every day to be lost in which I do not make a new acquaintance.” – Samuel Johnson
Somewhere between friend and stranger are those people we call acquaintances. They might be friends of friends, or people who provide us a regular service, or even certain neighbors. We know of these people. We just don’t KNOW them. Our relationship with them is “neutral.”
Today, complete an act of kindness for one of your acquaintances. In celebrating one acquaintance, we celebrate all of our acquaintances. In celebrating all of our acquaintances, we celebrate everyone.
Do you see how completing acts of kindness creates a positive wave of human synergy, that it harnesses something greater than what first may be apparent?
