Our Human Compassion Binds Us so Express Love to Others! #inspiration #compassion #grateful


Compassion

Are you compassionate?

All humans have the capability of being compassionate.  Yet, so many humans do not.  They are consumed with their own lives and needs that they forget about helping out another human.

We need to infuse the world with compassion.  How???  Simply by showing compassion and extending a helping hand.

If you see someone hungry, feed them.  If you see someone fall down, help them up.  If you see someone needing shelter, give them shelter.  If you see someone feeling down, smile.

Try it today.  Showing compassion is another form of love, one which binds us one to the other. We’re no longer alone but brothers and sisters.

What Seeds Are You Planting? Grow #Love #Gratitude and More in Your Heart #inspiration

What seeds are you planting in your heart?

Love

Fear

Happiness

Pain

Compassion

Jealousy

Your heart is like a garden and whatever you concentrate on will be sown.

I must admit, when I make a mistake or mess up, my natural reaction is to beat myself up. I spew out hurtful and harmful words to myself, calling myself stupid or ignorant. It’s something I’m working on and I have to fight against my own insecurities.

MR N told me the other day, “I wish you would show yourself the same compassion and kindness you show others.”

It made me stop and think.

Why don’t I?

 I don’t want to have bitterness and pain sprout from my heart. I only want to be filled with love, compassion and kindness.

Are there seeds of doubt and resentment growing in your heart?

Start today and weed out what you don’t want in your heart. Just remember to pull everything out, including the roots. 😉

The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?

View the World (and People in it) Through Artist’s Eyes #inspiration #affirmation #compassion


compassion

Do you see people physically or by their heart/spirit?

The world is filled with beautiful people and things.  I am not talking about what is splashed across the magazines or the television/movie screen.  I am talking about everyday people who you pass on the street.

A compassionate heart and a kind spirit is more beautiful to me than all the good looks in the world.  A person who goes out into the world and sees the beauty in everything around them is truly beautiful.

If you see the world through different eyes, you will truly be blessed!  Everyone is beautiful and a masterpiece, even you!

Look at the world around you today through artist’s eyes and you will see how beautiful the world really is!

Discover Your Passion #inspiration #motivation #passion


passion

Have you found your passion?

Mine is two-fold:

Write stories that uplift others and make them smile + Help authors succeed 

Once I discovered my passion, I held on tight. My passion allows me to live my dream life while working hard. I wake up every morning with a smile on my face. My heart is filled with happiness and joy. Sure, there is stress and I have never worked harder in my life. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Go out into the world and find your passion! You’re once step closer to making your dreams come true. 🙂

Spread the Light and Make Someone’s Day #inspiration #spreadthelight #kindness


Spreading Light Elderly

Are you spreading the Light within?

I live in an old neighborhood in my town. The houses and buildings are established with trees towering over the streets. I love it!

As someone who walks every day, I run into a lot of elderly people. Many of them smile and are friendly. I stop and chat with them for a moment or two.

Why?

It makes their day and it’s my way of spreading the Light. It doesn’t take any effort on my part and their faces light up.

Want to make someone’s day? Stop what you’re doing for one second and say hello. Acknowledging another person and wishing them a good day is a great way of spreading the Light inside you.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it. 

How do you spread the Light inside you? Share in the comments below.

What Will Your Legacy Be? #inspiration #kindness #MondayBlogs


Mother Teresa

At the end of your life, what will you be judged by?

Will your life be full of compassion, kindness and empathy?

Mother Teresa’s words hit home for me. I want to be remembered as someone who went out of their way to encourage and help others.

What will your legacy be?

Think about it and start living the legacy you want to remembered for!

To Be a Christian… Forgiveness in Action #inspiration #Forgiveness #Spirituality


forgiveness

Today is Maundy Thursday, a Christian celebration in the act of forgiveness. According to the Bible, Jesus and his disciples meet for supper. They are arguing amongst themselves and without warning Mary begins to annoint Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume. The disciples rail at her for wasting such a valuable thing. Jesus stops them cold and begins to wash their feet.

In the Christian community, washing another’s feet is an act of forgiveness.

A lot of people struggle with forgiveness, myself included. But it is part of being a Christian and a spiritual person.

To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.

C. S. Lewis knew what he was talking about and you could easily replace the word Christian with human being.

To be a human being means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.

No matter what the circumstances, we need to forgive others because God has forgiven us. Forgiveness doesn’t mean putting yourself in harm’s way. In fact, forgiving another has nothing to do with that person. Forgiveness is all about cleansing your own heart and finding peace.

Happy Mandy Thursday (whether you believe in Christianity or not)! Be at peace and if you need to forgive someone, stop what you’re doing right now and forgive.

Be Like Tinkerbell… #inspiration #kindness #positiveaffirmations


smallest acts of kindness

Have you ever wanted to grant wishes?

Ever since I was little, I have wanted to be like Tinkerbell. Yes Tinkerbell. I wanted to flutter around with my wand in hand and grant wishes. No agenda or purpose other than to help people.

I love this quote by Oscar Wilde. Let’s read it again:

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.

Guess what?

We have the power within us to help people. All we have to do is look around and offer some kindness.

Your son/daughter needs help with homework. Spend some time with them.

A friend has just lost her/his job/loved one. Invite her/him over for a meal and encourage them.

A stranger in the grocery store is trying to reach for something. Offer your assistance with a smile.

A person is waiting to cross the street. Wave your hand for them to cross.

These are just a few small acts of kindness. They don’t seem like they make a difference but trust me, they do!

Channel your inner Tinkerbell and spread some kindness! When you do, the world around you will see your wings and your Light!

Seize the Opportunity to Make Life Better #inspirational #kindness #baseball

If you had the power to make life better for another person, would you do it?

Here’s the thing, you have the power to be influential and to help others. You may not know how or where, but you have the power.

I love this quote by Roberto Clemente! He was a generous man who came from poverty. He never forgot where he came from and when he wasn’t playing baseball, he was donating his time, money and resources to helping others in his country.

How can you help others?

  • You can volunteer your time at local food banks, charities and/or non-profit organizations. 

 

  • You can donate money in person or online.

 

  • You can organize a fundraiser with your friends and family to help those less fortunate.

 

If you have the opportunity in life to make things better, and you don’t, you’re wasting your time on earth.

Kindness: Healing Hands for the Battle-Weary #kindness #inspirational #affirmations


kind plato

Someone asked me yesterday, “Why are you so kind?”

“I’m kind because there are so many people hurting and worn out from their life.”

Being kind takes little effort on my part and it could be the lifeline for another. My smiling face may be the only glimmer of Light they see.

Look at the picture above. Now, really look at it. That man could use some kindness.

Are you facing a battle and don’t know if you can survive?

You will!

Are you tired and it’s only 8:30 am?

Have some water/coffee/pop and tell yourself you can make it!

Do you see someone in need of a hug?

Be kind and hug them!

Kindness is easy to doll out. You are healing the world one person at a time. 🙂

Be kind, for everyone you meet  is fighting a hard battle.

Be Kind to Unkind People #inspirational #kindness #randomactsofkindness


unkind

When meeting an unkind person, what’s your first reaction?

Do you make fun of them? Do you shrink away before they lash out at you?

I smile at them.

Not only does this unnerve them but it shows compassion.

Everyone has a bad day. Some people are going through the worst day ever. Then they meet me. It could be a bank teller, a fellow walker or a cashier at the Walmart. It could even be a friend.

“Your total is $11.94” The snarky cashier barks out.

I smile as I hand her a $20. I can see a dark cloud over her. She thrusts the receipt and change into my hand.

“Here’s your change.”

“Thank you so much. Have a great day!” My over-exuberance causes her to stop for a moment. The cloud lifts a little and she smiles.

“Thank you, ma’am. You too.”

I walk away smiling.

Did I do something extraordinary? No. I was kind. The cashier could’ve had a fight with her husband or kids. She could’ve gotten some terrible news. I showed kindness, plain and simple.

Being kind  to even Oscar the Grouch is a worthwhile thing. The world needs more kindness and you can help!

Spread kindness to everyone, especially the unkind ones. They need it most.

What Would You Change in the World? #Kindness #Superhero #Inspiration


Wonder Woman World

I woke up this morning and wondered to myself, “If I was a superhero, what would I change in the world?”  I know, I know, crazy thinking!  I dreamt last night I was Wonder Woman.  I won’t go into detail but I woke up feeling strong and ready to kick butt!

What kind of world do we live in?  Turn on the news and it shows you in vivid detail.  More people on welfare/food stamps than people working.  Homeless people beaten to death.  Shootings in schools.  Shootings in workplaces. Police shooting innocent people. Soldiers returning from battle overseas and not giving them the needed care.  Poverty.  Abuse of children and the elderly in daycare/homes.  People not allowed to marry those they love.  People mocking others hard on their luck.  Housing foreclosures.  Government shut downs.  Police abusing power.  Government spying via email/social media.

I could go on and on but you get the point.  It’s a cruel world where the basic rights of a person are being ignored.  What kind of world is that?  I don’t know about you but  it is not the kind of world I want to live in.

You may shake your head and think, “But I am only one person.  What can I do to change the world?”

You can do a lot!  Kindness and compassion needs to be infused in the world again.  There are people from around the world who read this blog.  If every person did one act of kindness per day, it would lead to a worldwide change!

Look around your little corner of the world and make a difference!  Donate to the food bank.  Help those less fortunate.  Make your voice heard!  Let’s all be superheroes and change the world one day at a time!

Love Month: Spiritual Love Trumps All Other Loves (For Some) #love #inspirational #spiritual


spiritual love

I love this quote and it sums up perfectly how I feel about spiritual love! No matter what your spiritual belief, spiritual love with a higher being is another example of unconditional love. (If you are an atheist or an agnostic, this inspirational thought may not be for you and I’ll see you tomorrow) But for those who have a spiritual love, listen up!

The purpose of being spiritual has nothing to do with learning how to pray, chant, do yoga, meditate, etc but with learning how to love. All religions/spiritual beliefs teach their followers how to love.  Love your neighbors as yourself. Love is patient and kind. Love God.

Love is the Truth. Love is the Light.

I love God. My first experience in unconditional love was when I learned how much God loves me. He doesn’t  care what I have done in the past or what I look like. He loves me for me! He’s been with me through all the bad times and rejoiced with me in all the good times. He has never let me down and I love Him.

I love my neighbors as I love myself (more so on some occasion). Through spiritual love, I learned how to love my fellow human beings. I don’t judge anyone and I try to see the good in each person. Nowhere in the Bible does it say to hate those who are different than I am. It says to love.

golden rule

I follow the Golden Rule and continue to spread the Light!

Spiritual love rocks my world and I hope you feel the same way!

Are You Thriving or Just Surviving? #Inspirational #motivation #mondayblogs


thrive

Are you thriving or just surviving?

Are you living the life you’ve always wanted or stuck in survival-mode?

We all get stuck in a rut now and then. Life doesn’t appeal the way it used to. You don’t know what to do.

Do you try something new or do you just sit in neutral?

After more than three months, my best friend broke free and is now thriving. She was idling in neutral not knowing what to do. She tried to wait it out but it didn’t get better. I gave her my unending support and last week, she switched gears. She threw her life into drive and took off. I’m so proud of her. 🙂

How about you? Are you feeling restless and in need of a change? Listen to your heart and thrive. The time is now. Don’t go through life just surviving! Thrive!

The question is not how to survive, but how to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style. ~Maya Angelou

Would You Give Everything You Have? #kindness #homeless #gratitude


kindness

You see someone in distress. Do you help them get home or do you ignore them?

I read this amazing story of kindness this morning:

Homeless man gives student last $6, repaid with fundraising campaign

A HOMELESS man has embodied the spirit of Christmas giving by offering a student his last $6 so she could get a taxi to get home safely after a night out.

Did you read it?

Okay good.

I love this story because of the homeless man. He gave everything he had to make sure she got home. It is so selfless and we could learn from him. When we give from the heart, we can change our little corner of the world!

Kindness can come from anywhere and when it does, be filled with joy!

Spread the Light, like this homeless man!

Inspirational Quotes Bothersome? Not in my Corner of the World! #inspirational #motivation #affirmations


inspire

I was challenged by a thought last night.

“Do inspirational quotes bother you?”

I read a blog post and here is the link:

http://damyantiwrites.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/do-inspirational-quotes-work-for-you/

Are people really sick of inspirational quotes? It seems unfathomable to me. Everyone needs a little inspiration now and again. Sure, there are a lot of inspirational quotes on social media. But I don’t see the harm in that. The world needs more Light and positive vibes.

What do you think? Are you tired of inspirational quotes?

As most of you know, I am a positive person and I like to share inspiration every day. For me, it comes naturally.

I repeat the words of a famous song, “All the world needs is love”.

Go out into your corner of the world and inspire others! Let’s flood the world with Light and positive vibes!

What fills your soul?

Love and Light fills my soul.

When you have Love and Light in your soul, the darkness flees.

Today I am grateful for having Love and Light. Spread the Light is more than a catchy jingle; it’s how I live my life.

Spread the Light and Darkness has no choice but to run in the other direction!!

Hug those you love today and tell them, “I love you”.

Gratitude A to Z: F is for Food Banks #inspirationalthought #gratitude #foodbanks


food banks

Today and every day, I am thankful for food banks. Without them, people around the world would starve to death. It’s people like you and me who are using food banks, not just the homeless. Food banks are the missions in our communities.

They need help and with the holidays right around the corner, the need is even greater. Please go online and donate a few dollars. It would make a huge difference, trust me.

Just a Thought…


Just a Thought

I’ve been thinking a lot about destiny and thoughts lately. I believe firmly in destiny and I know I was meant to write Princess of the Light. I am following the path set out for me and I have faith.

Thoughts and words are the by-product of the soul.

Do you believe that statement?

I sure do!

As a person I try to project the Light and uplift as many people as I can. I’m an encourager and I have seen first-hand what happens when hateful words do more damage than a weapon. Our words are a reflection of our hearts.

Today and every day, let us be caring and speak only kind words!!!

Spread the Light!

Apathy is the Enemy of Kindness


apathy

Apathy makes my skin crawl. I look around the world and see apathy infecting humans. Apathy is nothing more than a deadly virus like Ebola. It invades people’s souls and strips them of their kindness.

This quote by Alfred Einstein is quite profound. We have seen what apathy can do throughout history. Injustices and hatred run rampant yet people turn a blind eye. Why is that?

Apathy.

Don’t let apathy get a foothold in your mind and soul! Let kindness reign!

Keep your eyes wide open and when you see someone in need of help, don’t turn away! Reach out and offer to help! Don’t be part of the problem but part of the solution!!!

You CAN make a difference – One Person / Situation at a time!


Will you make a difference? Don’t pass up an opportunity to show kindness, charity, love, peace and let your inner Light shine! 🙂 If we all made a difference, the cameras/media would stop to notice. If you see someone spreading the Light, whip out your phones and film it! Upload it to You Tube and watch the world unite! 🙂

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Further to my earlier post – Isn’t it Time? – I received the following and informative reminder comment from author Rebecca Heishman that I felt needed to be shared on a ‘Big’ page, not left to founder in a comment box:

Sadly, the people who will be reading your words here today already care. The fact that they are READING is evidence of that.

You’re preaching to the choir.

Interested involved citizens are already trying desperately to make a difference. Not everyone is lethargic or asleep in his life.

There are people out there in the world already making a difference. So, why haven’t you heard, you ask?

You haven’t heard about those things because no one is watching!

Here’s my beef: there are a lot of good people out there in the world, doing good and honorable things every day.

Where are the cameras?

Where is the press?

Show Kindness and Spread the Light


Show kindness

What matters in this world is not how much money I make or how big my house is but the impact on those I meet. If I died tomorrow, what would people say at my funeral? Would they say I had a really lovely home or would they say how kind I was?

I hope and pray people would remember me for my kindness.

Read this quote and ask yourself what good are you going to do today. For you will not pass this way again. 🙂

Show kindness to everyone you meet and continue to spread the Light!
