Sometimes, to get past where you are – the best thing to do is BE CREATIVE!

Penny L Howe, 2013

A time to be creative is during the days (weekends) when (even) those who care so deeply, feel a sense of helplessness and of being overwhelmed with events happening in our lives and the world, where there is so much work to be done to make things better.

This weekend, take a short break. Be creative and do something fulfilling and relaxing. Monday is Veterans day, an excellent day to spend, being with and, remembering those who have given so much for us and our country.

Be appreciative and thankful and embrace your life! Spend some time being creative. Let your talent take you to a place that makes you feel better about you! Sometimes, when you feel overwhelmed this is a very good thing to do!

The Wisest Man and Spreading “Good Will”!

 
 
*
The Wisest man
I ever knew,
had little to say
and lots to do.
But at the close of every day,
he’d turn to others and he’d say
“Well done my friend … well done!”
 

So one day I asked what he meant. Was he referring to a specific job well done? That the work day was over? That it was time to go home and rest? That he was satisfied with the others and the day’s accomplishments, and he replied to me:

“Yes!”

I never get over the fact that there are those who go through each day and pass “good will” around in the same way I see others pass around ridicule and disdain, indifference and cruelty.

I believe within most of us is a “fire” – to make a difference, to be and do more than we have already done with our lives. More and more, I see people taking a few minutes out of their day to do a random act of kindness and I’m loving it. There are a lot of good people out there! And a whole bunch of them are online blogging too and I love it!

Good day to you and a better tomorrow!

Human Spirit…compelling to care!

Compelling to Care!

When adversity strikes there often becomes a compelling need by others to help, to reach out, make a difference.

It is one of the best things about being human. The human spirit. It reaches beyond life’s ordinary daily issues, in times of crisis, to submerge the petty and reveal the positive, the brave, the giving, the caring – the loving.

This is good, this is very good. As it should be.

Thank you for stopping by,
