...the power of one

Never underestimate your power. We have chances everyday, many times per day, to make ours and the lives of others better. Letting someone in front of you at rush hour, waving a friendly hand when someone f*cks up on the highway, rather than giving them the finger, holding a door for anyone and more. Put these behaviors into action, and watch how the Universe gives back three fold. If you already do this, you know what I mean. If you have been an a**hole for years and are just beginning to try this method, it may take time for things to regain their balance. Give it a try. The power of one leads to the power of many. On this day in 1388, despite being outnumbered 16 to 1, forces of the Old Swiss Confederacy were victorious over the Archduchy of Austria in the Battle of Näfels. I was 12 at the time and somewhat remember this, being in awe of the David and Goliath concept in action. I was also texting a friend at the same time and missed most of this.
