    A small change I could make is to be more tolerant with adults. I work with children and God has blessed me to have abundance of patience with them, but when it comes to adults I expect to much I guess. I could make more of a difference in the lives of adults and children if I could be more composure and understanding towards others.

    A little more tenderness could help.

    Think less, act more and sometimes, just be – from a somewhat compulsive overthinker!

    Echoing others who mention pausing before speaking I’m reminded of my post from a couple of years ago to practice the Quaker’s direction: Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said now? Does this need to be said by me? When I practice this I am more likely to be a constructive contributor to the conversation.

      Thank you for that bit of Quaker wisdom, Elaine.

    I need to rest more and stay in the present moment and not worry about the future. That way I will be a calmer presence for those around me, which I have found in the past has a knock-on effect. The calmness is catching!

    Return to my practice of walking twice around the block between the many meetings in my days, listening to birds, looking at the sky, smiling and waving at neighbors. I lost it when I injured my knees taking up running (and promptly dropping it again) and then in the hurly-burly of a very intense season in my work world. This respite will recharge my batteries and the people in my meetings will get more of my attention and energy.

    Starting each day with gratitude. Focusing on what I have, rather than what I don’t, makes me more patient, loving, and content.

    Taking time out of everyday, no matter how busy I am, to connect, energise and show love, respect and kindness.

    Returning to the discipline of daily walking & having regular sleep times would help me and in turn others. I’d be a more “rested me” to interact with. Others would see less of me again and hopefully for a longer time frame.,

    Simply checking in more often. Sometimes work and life becomes so busy, checking in with a loved one is definitely needed to maintain that relationship.

    Like Mahua Seth’s response below, I could insert a pause before speaking or acting. Doing either on impulse, even well-intentioned, is unwise.

      Laura, Your post reminded me of this saying: “Think once before you act, twice before you speak and three times before you post on Facebook.” Contemplative Monk It’s also taught in Toltec Wisdom.

    When I am busy “evaluating” myself or others, I can stop, look, go..

    As I get older the reality of less time ahead than what has gone before is coming sharply into focus. How I spend my time is under my control, I am stepping away from the time wasting lure of social media and the virtual world to direct my time towards the real world and in person social connections. I need to focus on activities that are enriching such as cooking, art, music, nature and continue to learn and create. Obviously me being here on this site is a virtual world, but it is a nourishing life enhancing one, qualities somewhat lacking in the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram world, obviously there are exceptions but those places can be very unhealthy places to hang out and use your precious time on.

    I need to listen more consciously to what others are saying….their words are important to all.

    This is a good question for me today, as it just so happens that I know what these changes need to be and I’m slowly working on them now. For starters, I am back at the gym, let the man-sculpting begin!

    Read my notes I have taken on the anxiety/insomnia class during the day. And practice the ways to change my brain where this is concerned. I started out great, but then I let other things get in the way, so I need to go back to my notes and practice. This is really not small, but it is what I need to do….

    The small changes I can make each day are to let go of pain, burdens, stress, doubt, worries- in other words kepp letting go and become truth. Letting go means to stop holding on the falseness. Keep cleansing the mind and letting go is the most important of small things I can do. If I want to help anyone I must be free of hate, fear, disillusionments and all the other falseness we find in our minds. We could also call this repentance- letting go is the most important thing we can do. Become the peace we want to see in this world .
    I have to start somewhere so this is what I have been working on for almost a year now . What’s amazing is that I almost haven’t had any migraine attacks this month! Im not doing this to heal me I’m doing it to help us all. I pray that this will make peace .

    I wouldn’t know right now, but I do know that if I make a big change with something small, it is certainly no small thing. What I already do is give away smiles to everyone I meet on the street or during my walks. Maybe that can make the other person feel good.😊🤗

    Forgive and forget. Thinking of bad things will increase it. Working for the good not against the bad. Intellect is helpful only if it is rooted in the heart. Opinions make some sort of sense but might lead us towards fighting and separation. At first I need to look, feel and understand with my heart. Then intellect makes sense. Knowledge is very good. Practice is very good. Truth is beyond both. To find it means to become it.
