When you train for a marathon, you don’t run the whole race the first practice. It’s a lot of little steps at first, with more and more added as your training continues.

No Act of Kindness is Ever Wasted: Jeremiah went to Walmart, and needed a little assistance with the self check-out option, the lady was very friendly, helpful, and sorted out the trouble with a smile.

I’m trying to get better at this myself.
