Go & Be A Blessing

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.Henry David Thoreau

Let's not jump to conclusions, answers, and decisions right away, but also lets not think/ponder on topics or things too long either. See, Listen, Feel, Trust, Then Act &  Be a Blessing to others today.

Today's culture has the tendency to over-analyze every little thing or event that is happening, whether in the world or in your own life. I know I am guilty of doing it, and maybe you are know you are too. The time is now to be aware of this and realize neither you nor I will stop all at once with these bad habits of "seeing & judging" So starting today, let's loosen the stranglehold these "over-analyzing" ways have on our views, and also judgments and opinions we are usually to quick to arrive at.

Stop and Ask Yourself; "How Can I be A Blessing To Others Today?"

Everyday, Start It New In 
Every way

Today, tomorrow, and the start of everyday, wake up to a new mindset. If you start off the day in the right way/mood (an open mind), then any obstacle that presents itself will easily be overcome and you will enjoy the day that God has provided you even more. Not only that, but your positivity and optimistic personality will start to rub off on those around you in your workplace, family, and everyone you come into contact with. So even though you may know someone who may be "crabby, grouchy, or negative" be the positive and the change/inspiration for THEM. By being the CHANGE for Yourself first! 

Refocus... Look Again

You first need to be a more positive, slower to judge, quicker to forgive and forget, person of God. Before you can become a help,  impact or make a change in another person's life, you must first become a change in your life. Be a more positive person by becoming the strong foundation and representation of hope, love, bravery, hardworking, and inspiration for others to see and feel from you and your spirit that surrounds you. Then and only then once you come into contact with people everyday,  you'll start to impact them in the most positive way you can, every chance you get.

"We rise by lifting others."  ~ Robert Ingersoll

Feel Something New.. Feel Alive..

A handshake, pat on the back, a hug, a "Thank You", a simple form of appreciation, a friendly wave, a simple question of "Hi, How are you?" or even the simplest and most impacting form of love & friendship ... a SMILE... It will go a long way in not only in your life, but in all those around you that you come into contact with. So question is; "Why wouldn't you want to be a positive inspiration?" It's so simple, all you need to do is be a more positive and outgoing person. 

Listen... God is trying to tell you something.. 

Listen less to yourself and listen more to what God is trying to tell you. You have to have an open mind and be ready to hear what is actually being said, instead of what you want to hear. Keep this in mind, listen to each other, when someone is talking, give them your full attention, instead of thinking of what you are going to say next, listening to what is actually being said to you. Give everyone an open ear to talk to and an open heart to let them in.

"Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life, it's about what you inspire others to do." 

You will not be judged. Just remember you are you biggest critic! By reaching out in the SIMPLEST FORM either by a friendly wave, smile, "thank you" or another form of showing appreciation or gratitude to one another will bring forth happiness, joy, love, and positivity in your life, but more importantly the IMPACT will double outward to all of those you touch and show gratitude and appreciation towards. 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." -- John 3:16 

Just as God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so we could be saved. I encourage you to give positivity and love to one another more often. Gratitude, love & kindness to everyone you meet and come into contact with each and every day. Every day you impact another person in a positive way, it catches and spreads like a wild fire and the love and positive comments are spread to everyone around you and eventually back to you!  

God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others and see, hear, & feel God giving you direction to impact others in a positive way!
It's Nice to Be Important, BUT it's More Important to Be Really Nice!
