Monday Motivation

Thought:

A smile is cheer to you and me

The cost is nothing –it’s given free

It comforts the weary –gladdens the sad

Consoles those in trouble –good or bad…

Unlike most blessings for which we pray

It’s one thing we keep when we give it away.

Blessings!

Sunday Thoughts

“We think we’ll be safest tiptoeing carefully around land mines of criticism.  Callings beget criticism.  The thing about trying to please critics:  they’re never pleased.  A wise man once told me that there are people you don’t want to like you.” – Beth Moore

I have always wanted everyone to like me.  I want people to feel good, not only about the day, what is going on around them, about themselves, and about me.

It’s been a hard lesson, but I have realized that I can’t always make everyone happy.  Not everyone will like what you do, say, or how you act.  There will be people that just don’t like you.  But YOU have to like you.  You have to accept the flaws, bumps, and awesomeness that you are.  That’s it.  It is harder than it seems, eh?

Blessings today…and always.
