Making Caring Memories

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." --Maya Angleou

I heard a wonderful comment on the Oprah Winfrey radio show the other day. I can't remember who said it, but the statement stuck with me. Every person you meet, you should think to yourself, this is an angel sent to love me. And, I am an angel sent to love them. What a wonderful, wonderful sentiment.

It so easy to get in our own minds, our own routines, without ever noticing the people around us. My partner was commenting the other day, whether she has made a difference in anyone's life. It made me stop and think. Then, I answered her, maybe you don't know that you made a difference in someone's life. But, what if you smiled at someone that you passed in the market, and that made their day. What if you paid a compliment to someone, and it truly touched that person. I don't think we know how many peoples we touch, but I bet it is many more than we realize.

I am going to try to notice the people who pass through my life, and make an effort to make their experience with me a good memory.

Today's Affirmation:
I live with love and caring and leave loving and caring memories.

    this is beautiful, well written, and very appropriate. it's part of my daily balancing act: what i do, think, and how i act are projected towards others in so many ways, ways i may not realize or be conscious of. the subtle (and not so subtle) ways we touch other lives can have profound affects. i salute you, your observations, your kindred spirit, kind heart, and warm soul.
