We have heard it said, "Pay it forward." It just pays to be nice to people. Just the other day I was challenged to go to my neighbors and give them something.
Well I did. I gave them my book. It was exhilarating to see their faces light up when I gave it to them. Even if the hidden message was, 'just because someone does something nice for you, does not mean that they want something from you.'
You ought to try it! When and if you do, drop your comments as to what happened. I can't wait to see your feedback!
My ultimate passion is helping people recognize their gifts, empower them to be confident and enable them to serve by using their gifts to share by lifestyle example, reaching beyond themselves to a community and a world which provides a pathway for growth and development.
Passion is what compels you to do the things beyond your capability especially when you are faced with an obstacle.
What is your passion?
Forgiveness is not based on feeling. If we forgave based on our feelings we would never forgive because we are stuck with the way we feel. Our feelings can be fickle. We can love a person today and hate them tomorrow.
Forgiveness is a choice. You choose to let go of anger and/or guilt towards someone and/or towards yourself. Forgiveness is complicated but it can be done. Choosing to forgive keeps you healthy emotionally and physically.
