Another new chapter, it’s a new day (Tuesday to be exact) and it’s the start of a new month (February). I’m also using today to put some new (maybe not new, but trying to re-commit to some things) thoughts out there into the world, because that’s one thing I have learned, is that our thoughts and ideas are better out there, then in here. When they’re out there, others can be inspired or motivated by them, others can learn, but most importantly, other thoughts and ideas can be mixed with yours to make even bigger thoughts and ideas while you learn too.
There is nothing I want more than to impact people in a positive, move forward, motivate kind of way. But I also know that for this to come to fruition it takes a lot of effort on my part. It’s constantly reminding myself that every word spoken and action taken are vitally important. It’s also great to remember that every “thing” I (you) put out there in the world will lead to one of two things, action or reaction, from others.
There is more power in holding a hand than a fist. There is more power in a smile than a grimace. There is more power in a positive word than a negative one. There is more power in collaborating than flying solo. There is more power in building up instead of tearing down. There is more loving than hating. There is more power in giving than receiving. There is more power in caring, listening, laughter, family, friends, learning, teaching, and all the little tiny moments on this journey than we will ever comprehend.
Remember these things when “life sucks” or when “why me” enters your thoughts. I’m not sure where I heard this but someone said that the brick walls are there in order to see how badly you want something…so don’t give up!! Love that!
