You think you can do so very little -
and do you try to do even that?
Do what you can.
And discover how huge it can be -
For you, for the other,
And the other, and the other and the other, and…
You get the idea.
YOU can be the reason
Somebody feels valued, loved, supported, happy,
Walking away from you with a spring in their step.
Be the reason today for every single person you meet.
Even the drivers in the next lane. Send love to them.
Allow them to pass if they like. Smile as they do.
Suddenly their moment is better.
And SO IS YOURS.
Don’t you look back at memories - wonderful memories -
Of the most mundane things?
Your toddler, now grown, running as only a toddler can,
Wobbling from one foot to the other.
Your heart fills.
Your moments hand-in-hand with a love, walking on the beach
Or in the woods
Or in the city among high-energy tall buildings full of wonderful people.
Your heart swells with the memory.
Working - on the job - with coworkers,
The laughs and fun, the challenges and successes.
Wishing you could re-experience those folks and moments.
Today is one of those memories.
It’s not pasted in the scrapbook of your mind yet,
But you can fill your heart, experience it fully NOW.
Paste that memory into your mind
As you go through the day, and get to the evening
Full and joyous.
Create positive energies
- Think happiness-thoughts which are the fertilizer for your dreams.
CREATE positive energies to propel you to even greater
Thoughts, feelings, experiences and knowings!!
