Kindness is a gift that gives back. When you extend a kind hand to others, you extend it to yourself – Jacqueline
Today, look for little opportunities to be considerate to others. If you are driving, allow others to enter the traffic queue. If at work, ask a colleague who looks stressed if they need your help.
Remember that though we all want to change the world, we first have to initiate little changes around us. If there is any kindness that you can show or something good you can do for any fellow being, do it as you may not meet that person again.
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. ~ James Matthew Barrie
No two sunsets are the same and I am always drawn to look at the beautiful strokes and hues of orange and yellow that it paints the sky. No matter how many times I’ve seen the sun set, my spirit still hums in contentment when gazing at that gorgeous shiny ball hanging up there. Even when driving, sometimes I pull over and take it all in because it disappears within the hour.
Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully – Kristen Butler
Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn – Ralph Waldo Emerson
In a thousand years, I can never get tired of looking at sunsets and the silhouettes that it paints – Jacqueline
Sunsets like childhood are viewed with wonder, not just because they are beautiful, but because they are fleeting – Richard Paul Evans
When I stare at the blush of the sky from the kiss of the Sun set, I know a deep satisfaction in me and thank God for having lived through another blessed day. Jacqueline
In truth, when we make joy, prayer, giving thanks and kindness a way of life, we are able to handle life’s troubles with more courage, grace and inner peace that surpasses understanding. We are able to share and uplift those around us from a cup of fruitfulness.
This is not just from the mere standpoint of being a Christain and being in touch with yourself spiritually. Just as the powers of one’s body can be made stronger through gymnastics, exercises and healthy eating, the powers of the mind grow in strength and vigour from the training that it receives.
I can’t count how many times that my mind has strayed to things that don’t edify nor enrich my life, but I’ve also learnt to train it to identify triggers and tell it to stop. It may take time, but it’s possible.
In order to train our minds, we don’t need to wait till we can afford to pay gym subscriptions or for perfect conditions before we can start to practice. The power to transform our circumstance whether good or bad is within our grasp. Start today.
