Just A Little


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.

How Long…

Is there someone in your life that you haven’t spoken to in awhile- after having a silly disagreement?

Maybe it was an argument years ago- nobody eve n remembers what it was about, you just know you’re angry about it and so-and-so never should have said or done what they did.

But still it goes on- you never call this person anymore. You never stop to visit them or drop them a line. You miss them- and sometimes you think that you should reach out. You want to…but then you don’t. “Let them call me,” you say to yourself. And then you go on feeling bad.

Today- right now-this is it- your sign. Yes, I’m talking to you. Call that person today. Make amends. Life is too short. You’ll be happy you did.

It’s Always Now…


 

It’s always now…it’s always the right time to move forward; to take the next step.

It’s not next week, or next month, or next year. When you think along those lines what you’re really saying is that is it NEVER going to be the right time.

A leap of faith is exactly that- taking that chance.

But isn’t it better to take that chance and to find out than to exit this life with that chance still tied up inside you never to see the light of day and never coming to fruition?

Are You Underestimating Yourself…


Are you underestimating yourself? Are you underestimating your talents while overvaluing what others can do?

For example, maybe you’re a great interior decorator, and people, over the years have come to you for advice and everything you’ve told them has been exactly what they loved. You just have an eye for colors and fabrics and styles and, well you get the idea. In fact, you’re very creative. Many people have told you that you should be doing this for a living.

But somehow you don’t see it that way. You seem to think that anybody can do what you do. Anybody will know exactly how to decorate their own home or office. But then why do so many people come to you for advice no matter where you go?

You’re at the checkout line in the grocery store and you see your neighbor, and she has her friend with her. What’s the first thing she says? Oh, I’m so glad to see you. This is my friend Dave and he just bought a place a few blocks from us. I told him that YOU were the perfect person to help him decorate it! Hint… hint…

But instead you focus on your other neighbor who has a landscaping business. And you say to yourself “Now, that’s a talent! I wish I could create some of the designs that Larry can.”

Okay, Larry is talented but so are you. One is not better than the other. Larry has a talent for knowing how to create a beautiful garden with flowers; you create beautiful spaces using another medium. You BOTH are using your natural talents, but Larry has built a business around his. Hint…hint.

Don’t underestimate your abilities but instead use them to move forward in life.

Are You Working On It…

Are you working on improving yourself? Or do you put all your focus on what’s wrong with other people? Do you carp and complain all day about what someone else might have done wrong or do you tale steps to insure you’ll do the best possible job that you can?

Part of the Optimist Creed tells us “Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.”

Focus on you. Be the best “you” that you ca be.

How Do You Sound…


How do you sound…when you speak to others? How do you sound?

Are your words kind? Do you offer a smile and sincere sentiments? If asked for your opinion do you give it with concern for the feelings of others?

Or do you just blurt out whatever you feel like saying regardless of the effect it may have on another? Do your words tear them down?

Think about how you would feel to be spoken badly to. Would you like it? or would you more likely avoid that person (if you could) in the future?

Don’t be the person that others go out of their way to avoid.

It’s Your Choice…


1339342746405

It’s all in how you see things…how things unfold for you in life.

If you see everything as annoying, if you are annoyed at everything, well then, it’s gonna keep happening to you…more stuff coming your way to get you mad.

The guy in front of you takes an extra 3 seconds to go when the light turns green; you lean on the horn…you’re annoyed.

The lady in front of you at the deli counter decides at the last minute that she wants a lb. of Swiss cheese and you have to wait another minute…you’re annoyed.

The guy in the drive-though line is ordering too many things in your estimation and should park and go inside the store…you had to wait an extra 90 seconds…you’re annoyed.

And now these people have gone on their merry way enjoying their day…but you’re not because you’re still annoyed.

So, you have a choice. You can either change your perspective on the things that happen during the day; you can let it roll off your back and then walk away smiling…

Or you can be annoyed.

Your choice.
