As my mother said to me growing up, ‘you get more bees with honey than vinegar’ and I have tried to live my life by that saying. I think those were very wise and simple words to share with a young girl.
Those words gave me a visual and every time I thought about it I saw happy bees gathering honey from flowers, which was a great image for me to remember to be kind.
I think it is important in this day and age of negative news and fear mongers to make sure that we take time to say kind words to those we love but also to ourselves.
A kind word and a smile go a long way!
