Yesterday, I posted about the 5 things that made me smile/happy or simply brightened up my day.
Many of you viewed it BUT… none shared their 5 things.
So, I want to know, are you guys having such bad days?
So bad that you cannot pick out 5 positive things?
Ahhh… I really hope you have better days ahead and try to see the positives in each day like I am trying to do 🙂 There’s just way too much of negativity in this world right now. The least we can do is not add to it.
So here goes appreciation post:
Yesterday I got home after a long and tiring day. Boy, did I appreciate my helper. She is amazing. It’s so damn good to go to a clean home, clean bathroom, clean everything.
Especially when we have rough mornings where we just throw clothes everywhere, lastnights worn clothes still lying on the floor, coffee cups on the counter, make-up tools lying across the bathroom unit, shoes all over the floor. It’s just crazy. Imagine getting home to find it just the way you left it. 😞🙁
But, we get home to neatly cleaned spaces with fresh smelling rooms. All thanks to our helpers. We may hardly realise it, but if we take the time out to think this through, they help us a ton – more than their salary. I am so grateful. 🌸🌻🌼
Considering that it’s Mandela month, and many of us are trying to honour him while others tend to think that praying is enough. Now lets just go back, and recap, why do we pray? I would think that prayer is a way of reaching God or the higher divinities – for yourself and others in a spiritual way.
To make a difference, you need to go out there, roll-up your sleeves and get down to work. Ever heard of the saying “Be the change you want to see“? Well, if you want to see change, make change, be the change, lead by example. Always remember that if you help one person, just ONE, that’s change. That’s making a difference. And never stop there.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
