There is beauty everywhere in life. It is our own personal natures inside of us that detract from this rightness when we focus on what’s wrong with everything instead of concentrating on what’s right and making that even better. Should be simple, but it isn’t ~ definitely something for us to work on however, beginning today.
Share yourself; with love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding. Give of yourself; care, reach out, think of others and their needs.
“The light in your soul shines brightly, illuminating life’s beauty when you make a positive difference. I promise this is true.”

Kindness just is. You know when you bestow it on others, and you know when you receive it. There are no “conditions” no rules or regulations, no specific ideology, no reference as to where you’re from or who you are. Kindness just is.
Personally, I consider kindness to be a Universal Way of Being. It excludes no one, includes us all and there is never ever any doubt, about what kindness is.
When we’re kind, we are at our best. We are showing our love, care and concern for others besides ourselves. Here are a few words on the subject of kindness by some well known and admired individuals:
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” – Plato
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” - Henry James
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Khalil Gibran
“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” - Mark Twain
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” – Dalai Lama XIV
I think that sums it up nicely, lets all to kind to one another, it might go viral!
You are alive. Every day of your life whatever you do or don’t do. Your life belongs to you, so I’d like to ask you:
… Are you dancing?
… for the joy of it,
… for the love of it,
… for the beauty of it,
Because you are living it?
Dance to the music in your soul!
Dance to the rhythm in your heart!
Don’t fight it, embrace your life … Dance!

Planting Seeds for Happiness and Success
“To be content in the moment, to live fully without disdain or expectations beyond those of peaceful harmony and loving gratitude. To appreciate what you’ve been given and share with those who lack, and are needful of comfort and care – your bounty in life grows exponentially with your reverence, respect and love of same.”

Set The Example
“Good will, caring regard, gentle words, loving deeds, peaceful actions – these then bring us closer to one another.” ~ Penny L Howe
Whether child or an adult, its human nature to watch what other people are doing in your vicinity. This means whether you’re paying attention or not, somebody else is probably paying attention to what you’re doing.
Children learn by example. From the time they’re old enough to move on their own, they will parrot their parents and siblings facial expressions, word usage and movements. Even as adults, many people mimic what others are doing.
More or less, everyday we all set an example based on what we do or don’t do! How we behave in a specific situation and so on.
So the obvious point here is what type of example are we setting?
Just by watching things unfold everywhere around the globe, I’m thinking we “all of us” need to work on this one. And more than just a little. Because its something each person can do, individually, to make a difference that matters.
Set an example that’s inspirational to others. One you can be proud of. One your family and friends can support and then duplicate. Starting with just one person – YOU!
A most pleasant weekend to everyone,
“The wonderful thing about nature is that
we never tire of it’s diversity, beauty and natural self!”
How’s your persistence or determination for getting things done? Out of a scale of 1 to 10 where do you think you’d rate your ability to keep on, keeping on, in spite of what comes your way?
In case you didn’t know, the importance of persistence is HUGE. Almost every single successful person has learned this. They just don’t stop until they reach their goal.
The truth is it was not talent, nor education, nor intelligence that made the big difference. It was … never giving up!
I worry not for little things that interfere with what I do.
I worry not for larger things that slow me down for just a few.
I worry not for largest things that may stop me and impede.
I’ll keep on in spite of fears, I will not stop, I will succeed.
