Getting to know your neighborhood changes both your neighborhood and you.
Being visible, being present, being aware, being kind, being involved… they all matter.
They take a little time, but they don’t really take that much energy. And oh, the rewards the reap.
Start by walking around. Add in saying hello. Move to asking folk how they’re faring. Care about their answers.
Pretty soon you look forward to more of their story and people are being kind to you and to one another.
Kindness is contagious. Enjoy it. Embody it. It opens your heart! It starts the Path to Peace… and isn’t that why we’re born?
