Contributing to a better mental atmosphere


What might happen if we more often considered what kind of atmosphere we’re contributing to at home, at work, out running errands, or even at the polls? Wherever we find ourselves, each of us has a God-given ability to express kindness, compassion, and patience.

We have a favorite Chinese restaurant we go to where not only is the food excellent, but the atmosphere of consistent kindness, friendliness, and readiness to serve keeps us going back.

Atmosphere is an everyday fundamental. For example, while waiting in a long line, we can be patient or impatient. I have to admit it has gone both ways, in my case! But I have seen how expressing patience can help take an edge off a generally impatient atmosphere.
