Slow Down Saturday!!!
16 December 2013
Don't ever give up what you want most for what you want at the moment. Stop worrying so much about what everyone else is doing in their life, and look deep into your own life, then think about what you can do to make it better. Think about how you can be a better person. Ask yourself, do you live your life knowing you could live it better?
I often think about how I can make my life better, while making someone else's a little brighter. There is nothing more rewarding then knowing that I made someones day, week, month or year! The most amazing thing about life is the fact that we have full control when it comes to making someones day more then it was, better then it can be and happier then expected with one small act of graciousness! No matter who you are or where you are, you can make a difference to someone, what is more rewarding then that? I think many times people feel like there isn't much they can do, but whether you hug your young ones a little longer, hold the door for someone at the grocery store, make a donation to charity, or just fully engage in a conversation with someone just by listening, this just might make all the world of difference and believe it or not it just might be that one small act of kindness and compassion that makes someones day a little brighter.
I am passing on an email that someone sent to me this week because it puts our lives back into perspective, it made me realize that we should have value to our lives and appreciate the small things, love a little better and hold our family and friends a little closer. As we approach the holiday season please remember what it is really about, and show small acts of kindness because no matter how small or big these values and acts of selflessness are, they mean something to someone! The only person standing in your way is you, the rest is easy, just follow your heart, and remember the best lessons learned are when we listen.
