The power of a hug, a pat on the back or even a smile can make such an impact on a person’s day. Children especially need assurance that they matter, that they are important. It could change a person’s whole day, getting a little bit of kindness from even a stranger. Touching someone and being touched influences how we think and feel about ourselves. Don’t be stingy with your hugs and smiles. Offer some reassurance to someone you come in contact in your day; it could change your whole outlook about yourself too.
