Deal With Contention

Quotes and Notes #325, September 25

What a tangled web is negativism

What a tangled web is negativism

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”—Mark Twain—

It’s good to be nice to everyone—but there are those who will counter your niceness with negativism, bitterness, or contention. In such cases, try this; keep on being nice, but don’t pay attention to smallness, it is beneath you. Shrug your shoulders and move on.

It’s easy to smile when you are moving on.

Use Your Talent to Contribute …

Quotes and Notes #296, August 27

Help the landscape

Help the landscape

“Using your talent, hobby, or profession in a way that makes you contribute something good to this world is truly the way to go.”—Simon Zingerman, “We All Need Heroes: Stories of the Brave and Foolish.”—

Four tires and some trash were piled up around a “no-dump sign in front of some rather pretty woods. I pass this site often on the way to perform my services for one of my wonderful clients. Every time I drove by the mess I found myself perturbed that someone would violate such a pretty place.

One day my client let me know that she, too, was perturbed with the situation. That afternoon, I loaded up four tires and some other garbage onto the back of my truck and took it to the county landfill. I paid the $21.00 fee and got rid of the mess for good.

Now when I drive by the site, instead of being angered and perturbed, I look at it and smile. Cleaning it up was a little thing. The change in my outlook is a big thing. I learned something.

Share a smile with the landscape.

Smile, Let The Light Shine In…

Quotes and Notes #288, August 19

Open the window and let the sunshine out

Open the window and let the sunshine out

“A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.”–Denis Waitley–

“Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.”–Edith Wharton–

Since I have been writing these articles every day, I have started noticing the reactions of people with whom I share a smile. Sometimes, it’s even a compliment like, “I like your shoes,” or, “Your hair looks good.” I seem to notice that a brightness appears on the face of the recipient of a smile or a compliment. This tells me that I have made a small difference.

This always makes me feel good as well.

So always share a smile
Everything is going to be all right.
