Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
Realization and living in the present.
A smile, a hello, and just the simple presence of everyone I come into contact with. It’s peaceful and fulfilling to realize we are all connected and one.
To my past self at 14 years old and it would read: “Take it easy and enjoy everything you have at this moment.”
By treating everyone with respect, sharing a smile, and to look for the positive in every situation.
By focusing all of my energies on the good in my life.
Ben is the type of person who is friendly to everyone and brings a smile to people’s faces by just saying hello. His kind demeanor and morning greetings start the day off right. Thankful for having him at the workplace.
The crisp, clean air and the quietness in the morning; they give me time to reflect on just how blessed life is and can be. It’s almost like a reality check to make me realize that life is all about the experiences that make me happy.
Volunteering my time, not only in service, but in learning and reading about different cultures so that I may better understand customs and traditions. Many things we might find offensive may be acceptable and the social norm in other cultures.
Family and friends.
Experiences, wealth, food .. everything. It would be an honor and a blessing to share freely.
When I see and experience all the good in people; that’s what is magical. So grateful to experience that daily.
I’ve climbed out of that pit of alcohol, hopelessness, and depression. I look back at that time in my life and the look on my face in that picture .. wow! I can’t believe I made it out of that alive. Thank you for that time because it’s made me who I am today and so much stronger.
By improving myself and letting myself go .. to freely give myself without the fear of pain.
My friend’s father who passed away just last week, my friend who is recovering from his recent stroke, and the reality check to remember that I have so much to be thankful for. Live your life in gratefulness .. every single moment is a blessing and a gift.
I would be turning my weakness into a strength. It’s always a challenge to master things. This would be beneficial to work on.
The smell of winter rains bring back memories of when my whole family would get together on the weekends.
This was when my grandparents were still alive and, I know now, that they were the glue keeping my family united. I surely do appreciate those times.
I’m grateful for dogs because of the companionship and loyalty they bring.
I very much appreciate this gift. Thank you!
Envy teaches me to be humble about my current situation and not to judge anyone. I can learn to enjoy where I am in my life and appreciate everyone and everything around me.
Happily living in my call to service.
