#ThoughtfulThursday: Attributes

Once we recognize the fact that every individual is a treasury of hidden and unsuspected qualities, our lives become richer, our judgment better, and our world is more right. It is not love that is blind, it is only the unnoticed eye that cannot see the real qualities of people.

#MondayThoughts: It Really Does Matter

“Shit might be irrelevant but it can stick.” – Syl


When we do something good or attempt to, it is not our job to perceive how it will or if it will be accepted. We simply must do good. I do not pat myself on the back or even talk much about what I do. I simply do it.

With so much negativity being thrown at us, it is only natural that some of it sticks. It doesn’t matter how positive or highly spiritual you are, at some point it affects you. Do we linger in this negativity? Do we continue to question the very fabric of society and what it is made of? We can because it is our choice but we can also strive to do good, sincere, down to earth good to counteract the evil and negativity that is a part of life.

The good you do matters. It isn’t about the size of the gesture, it is about doing the gesture. The world is in dyer need of good. The good you do really does make a difference. It does on an individual level and a higher level. It can brighten someone’s day, it can bring light to a tough situation, it is something that can be payed forward. Imagine what paying goodness forward can do.

Negativity can stick but goodness can stick just as well and the good that you do really does matter.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#MondayThoughts: I’ve Got Your Back

Isn’t it an amazing feeling to know you have people in your life that have your back? They stand with you through thick and thin and are not afraid to show you some tough love when needed.

It could be a family member or members, friends, co-workers or just that special someone in your life who delivers a daily dose of feel good to let you know they are there for you. Let’s face it, we are living in some very harsh times. We have all experienced our fair share of days when it feels like the life has been sucked out of you, or stress and pressure are relentlessly squeezing you mentally and spiritually. Health issues reminding you of your mortality. We have all been there.

On these occasion, hasn’t there been someone who has either said or did something that has given us the lift we needed to stay hopeful (no matter how feint). That unconditional support that spoke volumes in saying “I’m going to help you get through this and you will get through this.” No one is an island unless they choose to float alone.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that someone has got your back?

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#ThoughtfulThursday: Openness

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” 
― Tony Schwartz
