Today’s Thought is dedicated in memory of my mother Shirley, who taught me so much and her lessons continue, Thank you!
Leave people better than you find them…….for as you live your days, you create you life experience. Mother Teresa taught us “There are no great acts. There are only small acts done with great love.” So very often people will complain about what they don’t have in their relationships and lives; very seldom do they step back and examine what they have given, because they are too focused on the negatives. No matter what kind of relationship it is; whether it be a partner, a co-worker, a child, a friend we have to make emotional deposits in them.
We cannot expect to only make withdrawals, we must be willing to give, to add joy to their life. So today, buy your partner fresh flowers, call your best friend, tell your children how proud you are of them, show genuine appreciation to your co-workers and be grateful for the love in your life. How much love and joy you experience will always come back to how much you give…….what we need most is what we must offer to those around us.
Robin Sharma said “What small acts can you do today to deepen the bonds between you and the people you value the most? What random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty can you offer to someone in an effort to make his or her day just a little better. The irony of being more compassionate is that the very act of giving to others makes you feel better as well. “
