“Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them.”—Thomas Kinkade—

A true story…
As the stream of your life runs over the rocks, it takes but a moment now and then to recognize the needs of a friend and a moment more to offer a word of encouragement. The stream flows on over the rocks.

And then, one day, you receive a return message from one of those friends.
The message says, “You truly add so much joy to me and spread a lot of sunshine in my life!”
That should make you happy.

Share that smile as much as possible
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Encourage Others

Quotes and Notes #117, February 28,

“You should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it—young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous—is changed by it.”–John C. Maxwell

A couple of days ago I spoke of a positive attitude (I think I can) and now it is time to move on to sharing that feeling of confidence.

When you see someone who is struggling to solve a problem or to reach a goal—Instead of telling them about your wife’s uncle’s girlfriend who had a far worse problem—Instead of that, offer some encouragement.  Share a “you can do it” attitude, find enjoyment in seeing another’s work in progress, and be positive. We never forget the encouragement that others have given us in our lives.

Venture into the world with a “you can do it” attitude.

Share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right.
