Are You A Guiding Light…


Vibrant Sun 3

Are you a guiding light for others? By that, I mean, do you encourage and help motivate those around you? Or do you pull them down?

An encourager says things like “good job!” when a task is done right. And when it isn’t, they say something like, “you made a great start, so now, next time if you just do this (whatever it is) you’ll get an even better result.”

An encourager can lift spirits. They can help a smile form. They can help a person feel better about themselves and the things they do. They can help to light the way for another; kind of like a lighthouse does for ships at sea.

But they do not make people feel bad or stupid. They don’t say things like “Are you an idiot or what? A two year old can do a better job than you can!”

They don’t make people feel worse than they did before you said anything to them.

So let me ask you, if you were in their place, what words would you like to hear…

Oh Yeah…

Accept yourself-as you are, Okay, so you’re not perfect but no one is. No matter what you think you see when you look at another person- they are not perfect. Their life is not perfect. They have their ups and downs; they have challenges to meet- we all have.

Accept yourself with all your “quirks” and be happy to be you. No one can do “you” better than you can. Don’t look at others and wish you had their lives- it has been said that if we all threw our problems into a hat, when we saw what some of the other problems were that we’d take ours back gladly.

Just A Little…


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Just a little dab will do you..a little dab of kindness.

A friend of mine has an older family in the hospital, and this lady was scared. They give out little teddy bears to the little kids when they come in, but nobody thought to give one to this older lady except this one one orderly who grabbed on and gave it to the woman.

She immediately calmed down and hugged the little bear until she fell asleep peacefully. After that, she hung onto that stuffed toy and it comforted her. And so did the orderly, who made it a point to visit her each day after his shift.

A little kindness goes a long way.

Ya Gotta Have Some…


Ya gotta have some…enthusiasm. You have to have a zest for life and an appreciation of all the good things already in your life- if you want to enjoy it.

Sometimes it means being happy over little things- like a sunny day or a warm breeze. And many times it means making a conscious effort to shift the way we we from kind of “blah” to feeling optimistic about the day and all it brings.

Making an effort to be enthusiastic can make the difference between a gray day and a great day!

What Are You Saying…


 

What are you telling yourself? Are you telling yourself things that make you happy? Do you encourage yourself? Do you see the glass as half-full? Do you treat yourself like your own best friend? If not, why not?

We have a choice in this life. We have the power to make ourselves happy- or to make ourselves miserable. And we do that largely through our inner dialogue.

That little voice inside your head will keep talking. It will continue to give you feedback, but what that little voice tells you is up to you because you program it.

When you hear it speak negatively and pull you down stop it and say  “Hey now, little voice, I  do deserve to be happy. I can do what I set out to do. I can make a positive difference in this world and now I want you to start reinforcing those beliefs for me.”

See if the little voice starts to change its tune and sing your praises. The more positive you hear the more positive you do.

Are You Enjoying It?

Rate This

A990205258_011re you enjoying it- your journey in life- or are you just fixated from getting from Point A to Point B as fast as you can? Do you often begin sentences with “I’ll be happy when ____ (you fill in the blank)

You know what? Life will end soon enough so you don’t have to try to make it go any faster- stop and savor the small moments as they unfold- that is some of the stuff that makes life worth living.

You know what? If you keep say stuff like “I’ll be happy when…” you’ll find that when your “when” rolls around you are happy- for about five minutes, and then you’re off on yet another “I’ll be happy when…” and then in the meantime, you’re miserable.

You know what I’m talking about. Living life this way makes no sense and in the end, won’t make you happy- but enjoying the actual journey; seeing it as part of a learning and enrichment process will.

You Can (If You Really Want To)

Rate This

990108468_036You can (if you really want to) expand your horizons. You can take the first step towards the hings you want in life.

Can it be scary? You bet. Can it make us anxious and uncomfortable? Definitely. Is it worth it? What do you think?

Do you think it would be better for you to spend your life in your “comfort zone” and never know the thrill of stretching your boundaries; never knowing what it’s like to discover new things and just how much you’re really capable of? Do you really just want to sit there and collect dust?

So, at the end of your life do you want to be known as the adventurer or the dust collector? I know which one I choose- how about you?

Do You Spend Time There?

Rate This

Do you spend time there…in your imagination, seeing your dreams take form, feeling your goals coming to fruition? Are you spending time in this magical place? Or, do you brush off your imagination as useless, a waste of time, or a place only for children?

It’s from the imagination that some of the great inventions of our time sprang from. Einstein used it. Edison used it. These were not frivolous men. They did not view the imagination as a place for only little kids- they viewed it s a viable tool to help them on their journeys.

And so should you. Make the commitment today to spend at last a few minutes of the day in your imagination, visualizing your goals being realized, and see how it can be a very valuable tool.

Be You

Rate This

Be you- because you shine just the way you are. You do! Stop and think about that for a moment. Look at all you do well. Stop comparing yourself to other people; each of us has own own unique talents, but so many times we downplay what we do well and almost over-play the talents of others.

You can certainly appreciate what others do well, and you should, but never at the expense of the things that you can do. Keep that in mind.

Today, appreciate yourself.

You Have To Start It First

Rate This

DSC01699_0015You have to start it first. We all want people to be kind to us, to listen when we speak, to understand and to smile. We all want that- but someone has to take the first step and that needs to be us.

We need to be kind first- to lend a helping hand when we can. We need to listen when someone speaks. To understand and to smile. We need to set the example, because what we put out there we will attract back to us.

So, if we spread misery and sadness we’re not going to get that understanding smile; we’ll just get a bunch of people running for the hills when they see us coming their way.

Besides, it feels good to be nice and it’s the right thing to do. So let’s all do it a lot more.

Are You Drifting…


990205258_022

Are you drifting through life? Do you half- heartedly wish for things and then change your mind thinking that maybe the next thing to come around the corner may be the thing for you?

If you don’t know what you want then how can you move towards it? If you don’t have a clear idea how can the Universe bring you what you envision?

Let It Drift…


35920022

Let it drift away- all that stuff from your past that you carry around with you- stuff that us not helping you now but only hurting you. You know the things I mean- things that happened years ago involving people who either forgot all about it or may not even be on this plane of existence anymore. But it’s stuff you keep playing over and over again in your head and each time you relive it it’s like the first time, with all the hurt and pain fresh, ripping open old wounds. And why really?Is it helping you feel good bout yourself and your world so you can move forward? Is it giving you the confidence to close that sale or make that presentation or ask your boss for a raise? Does it make you feel great to keep going over it? I don’t think so and be honest- you don’t either.

So now, in the theater of your mind, scoop it up and place it gently on the waves and let it float out to sea where hopefully it will drift out into the major shipping lanes and be run over; And then you know you’ve seen the last of it
