When you start each day with a grateful heart, light illuminates from within.
I am thankful for so much, but at the same time…for not enough. Even in the darkest of nights, there is beauty to be appreciated. Today, I want to appreciate more.
What are you grateful for?
“One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream,
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer,
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true,
One life can make the difference…
You see…it’s up to you.”
Let us make every moment count. 💙
“My mission in life is not merely to survive,
but to thrive;
and to do so with some passion,
and some style.”
Let us all aim to thrive today. 💙
“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
This is one of my favorite poems from Emily Dickinson. These words—among others—have helped guide my heart and hand in the care for those suffering.
Do you have a favorite quote or mantra that you live by? It can be heartfelt, witty, or profound. Let’s inspire each other with some positive words today.
If you could send one message of encouragement to the world, what would yours be?
Everyone suffers. However, what I have learned as a caregiver is that humans have a remarkable ability to hide their personal sufferings. At any one time, I may be suffering—but you wouldn’t know. At any one time, the blogger leaving the comment before yours may be struggling—but how would you know?
We live in a world where it’s become so easy to connect with one another. So if you could share a few positive words right now to someone you didn’t know who is currently undergoing hardships, what would you say?
Remember—the comments you leave are for each other as much as they are for me. So if something you read resonates with you, let that blogger know. Feel free to converse with each other and make new connections…even outside of the formal Meet & Greet.
Let’s aim to affect someone in a deeply positive way today.
What is it that gets you out of bed every morning?
What keeps you pressing on day after day, despite the hardships?
What inspires you…and why?
One of the great things about being a part of a blogging community is the ability to encourage and help one another from afar…despite geographical distance or personal differences. Many times, my heart is warmed just by reading what you share in the comments, and I believe others are too.
Your words matter. So share with us about what inspires you. You never know whose heart you will touch.
