What are the little Cards About?
As I walked through the magnificent streets of Manhattan, my current home, I often see people who have a certain positive, beautiful aura. As I come across these people I have wanted to find some way to tell them of the beauty I see within them. After much thought, I finally came up with the idea of the cards.
In a city like Manhattan there are so many people around you. You can be sitting in a small subway car with over 100 people crammed in around you. With about twenty subway cars linked together, you can easily be riding the train with 2,000 people. Most people deal with this situation by blocking out the sea of humanity around them. From earplugs droning music into our ears to our minds focused on work and daily activities, we walk amongst the people around us oblivious to their existence.
I try to be aware of the people around me, to see the light, the good, the hope and the possibility for change in the sea of faces around me. When I give the card to someone, I try to break through a person’s walls and connect with them to show them that there is a connection between all of us, and to tell them that the goodness in them has been noticed.
Open yourself to seeing the amazing flow of people around you and offer yourself to those who need you. Do you see someone struggling around you? Offer a hand.
The cards are more than just a recognition of the good I see in someone. Often, people only hear negative scripts (messages) and so rarely hear positive scripts. We all need to fill the world with honest positive scripts, to say them to others and to ourselves. Sometimes I can feel that a good person needs some positive energy, and the card gives me a way of doing this.
Whether it is passing the card onto someone else or telling someone verbally, share some positive scripts with someone today. Tell someone about the good you see in them.
If you pass the card on, you can put your name on the back to put a little of your positive energy into the card.
