What a different experience it is when you go through the day HONESTLY paying attention to how you are treating others… in every single encounter. Looking more closely at how the reality you find yourself in might be perceived by those around you, and less closely at your own perception. Naturally, this is challenging – as we are viewing the world from our own two eyes. I woke up and read this quote today:
“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people”
After doing so, I decided I would spend this day strengthening my goodness. It really doesn’t take a whole lot to turn an ordinary day into an EXTRAordinary one.. all we have to do is slow down, and open our eyes and ears wide – so we can see and hear all the opportunities we have to really help out.
Something I was reminded of a lot today – CHERISHING others is key. It brings out the best in them. In any situation or in any person it is easy to find something to complain about, but what the heck good is that going to do? What we focus on expands, so perhaps we can ask ourselves… what do I want to encourage in this life? the BEST or the WORST?
TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED.
