If the world seems cold to you, kindle fire to warm it.
- Lucy Larcom, hymnist
Lighting fires in the cold
It is very easy to complain about the state of the world and point fingers, especially when you're having a bad day. What is not so easy--and yet desperately needed at times--is for people to step up and make a difference. Don't be intimidated by others, wallow in your own negative feelings, or sit back and assume someone will do it when you are capable yourself! Relating to others around you isn't always easy, but lending a helping hand, extending a hand in friendship, or expressing a word of encouragement can make a big difference to someone. The fate of many has been changed by the actions of just one person who has grown tired of "how it's always been done" and instead turns and does something more positive. The world does not demand of you to give your entire life, but we can all be instruments of positive change. What can you do to make this world better?
Today healthy reflection I'm wondering what I can do to be more positive & to step up. Was really annoyed the other day when my prescription wasn't avail. called the Dr. a couple days ago & haven't heard back. Wonder if it's b/c I need to go get my blood tested. Guess I need to make a couple more calls.
Dishwasher repairman is coming today, funny thing was I don't remember calling him. Our dishwasher had stopped working last year & was fixed by dh by cleaning out the screen a couple times, which I find strange since this is a pretty new machine.
Trying to find time & motivation to workout, get organized & spend quality time w/my family.
Sorry for the long blog, throat hurts from coughing the past couple days. How is your day going?
