When I started playing Akoha, it was mostly because it was fun to play missions and see my karma points collect. Almost six months later I’ve begun to notice a change in the rest of my life. I used to think mean things about the people around me. Come on, we all do it! You know, the “ugh, what’s with that haircut?” or the “those colours don’t work together”. I think we all have those petty, small minded thoughts. In the last few weeks though, I’ve noticed that I’m starting to become more positive. Every once in a while there is a “that person looks like they’d be fun to have coffee with” and a joy in people’s idiosyncrasies (strange laughs, hooked noses, penchant for wearing clashing patterns).
What I really notice though, is that I say Thank You an awful lot more. Often times its just in my head, but more and more I’m willing to stop people (whom I don’t know) and say Thank You. These things make me smile and brighten my day, and hopefully by passing that on I can make someone else’s day better.
So thank you Akoha, for being the catalyst.
