Random acts of Kindness

Thursday, April 25, 2013

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life." Make it a good day and reach for the stars!! Track your food, burn some calories, smile and make a plan. It is all up to us.
We can do it. Sharing with others and being positive really is a way to keep motivated. Random acts of kindness are wonderful to receive and give. Do something nice for someone and don't tell anyone. In other words, give for the sake of giving and not expecting anything in return. It is amazing the joy you will feel inside afterward. As in all things ask for God's blessings each day to do the next right thing. The journey to better health can be long, but can be rewarding!! If we plan our day with goals in mind, smiles and gratitude for all we are lucky enough to have it will be so much easier. We can do it!! Keep Sparkin and Don't sweat the small stuff, do one thing at at time, quiet your mind and you will develop your passion.

Many of these thoughts I learned through trial and error and also a great read,
by Richard Carlson, "Don't sweat the small stuff.....and it's all small stuff."
Thanks for reading my blog. Let's help each other plan for success. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love your blog !!!

    Just want to share that my daily 6 hour job requires me to smile and be welcoming and I do it because I love it !!!! I get all the acknowledgement and compliments from those that I greet everyday and it feels good to be good to others. If we all were just nice to others with a positive attitude there just may be peace in this world.......

    I can only imagine !!!!

    This is a story that was originally in the AA Big Book written by Bill Wilson & Dr. Bob. They used it to describe an addictive personality

    However, it sure does explain a strong-willed personality. Thank you for the reminder.

    emoticon blog Ei. Lots of true words written in your blog.

    I am not religious, but am always so very thankful to have been born in such a wonderful place. We live so 'richly' compared to 80% of the world. It's frightening!!

    Even with ordinary 'room' is quite astounding when you think of places the same size as Tasmania. Example is Sri Lanka, same size and they squash in 80 million people. Whew! How do they live like that?? We have just under 1/2 million here and that's enough.

    Plenty of food, plenty of good weather, plenty of $$, plenty of all mod cons, even one of the fastest internet setups in the world. We make the best wine, the best cheese, we have the best fruit and veggies and breed the best meat on the hoof.

    Like I said, I am not religious, but must've done something right in a past life, eh.

    I just wish everyone was as 'blessed' as I am. emoticon
