I would greatly appreciate it!!!
Today's inspiration is such an amazing quote. If we could look into each other's hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care. Let's pick this a part shall we....
If we could look into each other's hearts....can you imagine if we just stopped for a minute to see what each of us is going through? If someone you encounter is being somewhat of a brat and just acting out of sorts; instead of blowing them off or being irritated by it, what if we just asked what was happening and understood their situation. Now, let's be clear it does not give the other person permission to be a jerk but what if we took that moment to understand. Really listened to what was going on, we could be that person to change their whole perspective and attitude in that perfect moment. We could give them an opportunity to figure things out for themselves and have an amazing day. How cool would that be? Also, you win because it was you that gave them the space to be happy.
And understand the unique challenges each of us faces...sometimes when we are filled with grief and worry we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. If we could take that moment to let them know and see for themselves how they can be okay in any given situation, they would be able to see that it will be okay. It will allow that person to take in a deep breath and realize no matter what they can get through whatever struggle they are dealing with. Now, again let's be clear there are some pretty tough struggles out there...death of a child or loved one, a physical attack on someone or some tragic event that would set someone back; however if you have kind loving people around you to understand, they can help you get through those tough struggles. I think about my best friend Mary who's daughter was taken from her tragically; it has been a tough road for her but she has people around her who keep showing her how amazing she is. It's not easy but with the love an understanding surrounding her; it makes it a little bit better every day.
I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care....this is the amazing part of this inspiration. Can you imagine every person in this world treating each and every person in this world with gentleness, love, patience, tolerance and care? What would our world look like? It would be a place of peace and harmony where each person was heard, respected and filled with love and grace. It would be a world without much pain and lots of tolerance. It would be a world of supporting each other in any situation and no one person left behind. Can you imagine?
It is the month of November, and in American we have a whole day of celebration of being Thankful for all that we have. Today let's show each and every person who crosses our path gentleness, love, tolerance, patience and care. Let's see how much you change someone's life today and let's really take notice on how much your life changes today.
Have an amazing day my friends...Until we meet again...
With all my love...Rita
