How often do I make a conscious effort to leave a place better than I left it? What does that even mean? When I was little, Mom would always tell us to leave a room cleaner than we found it, whether it be in our own home, or especially someone else’s. What if we were to go beyond tidying up? Perhaps with a sincere expression of gratitude or some random act of kindness. Whether we like it or not, our actions have an effect on those around us, so why not try to spread good vibes.
