Keep Life Flowing in a Positive Direction
Itís a fantastic situation when your life flows and you know you are
doing the right thing day after day. But many face challenges, lack
of work, health problems, getting old, etc. The saying of turning
the scars into stars is never truer than now. At some point you
realize that life isnít a given. Itís a capsule of time that will
endĖand thatís for certain.
Do you have any dreams, aspirations and things that seem appealing
that you havenít had the opportunity to experience? Start small and
do one thing today that is out of the ordinary. Maybe it could be
five minutes of silence and smiles, five minutes of listening to
inspiring music, or writing in a diary. You could even help one
Being self-absorbed seems to multiply the focus on ďmeĒ.
I met some exceptional ladies yesterday at the county fair who sat
at a table knitting hats. They talked to people but didnít stop
knitting. And why? They were knitting hats for cancer patients to
give away to them free of charge. They each paid for the yarn and
they learned to knit so they could help out. One woman knits a hat
per day and has done so for several years. Why? Just to help less
fortunate people. Another had health problems last year and needed
to do something with her leisure time. She heard about the Knots of
Love hats for cancer patients program and learned to knit so she
could help someone else.
These giving women are truly happy when they hear about the joy the
hats bring and warmth they create for chills people experience
during cancer treatment. This is just one idea about getting
yourself out of a rut and moving into a happy spot where things will
flow once again.
