Nodding & Smiling is Underrated

1. A specific compassionate loving thing I birthed into the world today: I seemed to offend a new guy at work, so I apologized, and he said no offense had been taken.

2. A specific loving thing someone gave to me today: My sister gave me good advice about an awkward subject when I asked her for it.

3. A not-so-loving thing someone gave to me today: In response to an idea I had, my boss went on a non sequitur monologue about a project he’s been talking about for a year but has simultaneously blocked action on.

4. A compassionately loving thing I did in response to the not-so-loving thing today: Nodded and smiled. Wisdom to know the difference between things I can control and things I can’t.
