A simple message that says so much.
We are neighbours with others we haven’t even met.
Greet others with a friendly smile, a courteous hello, a head nod, or a sincere gesture.

Yield your rights.
All these things say: “Hey, neighbour, I am thinking of you. You are more important than me. And I am considering you.”
I often say feelings saved are better than being right. Easier said then done sometimes. Our selfishness can kick into high gear in an instance.
When it does, take a moment to step back from the situation. Try to see the other’s point of view. Breathe a moment before responding and when you do start with a simple “Hi, neighbour” might just put all at ease and help others see what it means to…
