Empathy. Perspective. Patience. Kindness. Forgiveness. Love.


Today, as we formally observe the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Scarlet Says just one simple thing…spend just one day this week doing something selfless for someone else. The simple thing could be in the form of showing:

  • Empathy – understanding and sharing the feelings of another
  • Perspective – consider someone else’s viewpoint of an issue or situation
  • Patience – enduring, waiting, listening
  • Kindness – behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others
  • Forgiveness – an intentional and voluntary process by which someone undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense; letting go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish the offender well
  • Love – a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection

They’re free. They’re pleasant. They’re the right thing to do. Have a great week!

Until Next Time,
