Try This Today…

Quotes and Notes #324, September 24

A day you will never forget

A day you will never forget

“What if today you gave yourself permission to be outrageously kind? What if you extended as much good will and kindness as you can possibly muster to every person you meet? And what if you did it with no thought of reward? I’m sure of one thing: it will be a day you will never regret.”—Steve Goodier—

Or what if you did this every day of your life—It would make for a memorable life.

The fact remains that sharing a smile, sharing a kindness, or making someone feel good in one way or another, also serves to make us feel good and to be happy. Empathy breeds content.

Learn the Value of Silence…

Quotes and Notes #208, June 5

“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strangely, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”—Khalil Gibran—

“Live and learn,” they say. Or, we could say, “Watch and learn.”
I have found it a good practice to never say anything bad about someone. Silence is much better in such a situation.
Silence with a smile speaks volumes

Everything is going to be all right.

Seeking silence is a good occupation.

Make Someone Happy

Quotes and Notes #140, March 24

“Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!”–Lawrence G. Lovasik

It seems to me that if you follow these directions, one of the people you will make happy every day will be you. It pays off with interest.

Share a smile.

Reach Out to Give

Quotes and Notes,#106,  February 17

“Life is always a tight rope or a feather bed. Give me the tight rope.”--Edith Wharton

Basking in the light and warmth of a candle is comfortable, but there is always that impulse to see just how close we can get our finger to the flame before being burned. Without reaching out a bit there can be no learning, no knowledge, and…and no kindness.

The easiest way to reach out to the world is to create a random kindness. This builds your personal safety net under the tight rope.

Today, share a hug as well as a smile

Everything is going to be all right.
