You Can Make A Different This Season

Christmas is my favorite time of the year! There are different ways to practice kindness this season. One way to be kind is to open your eyes and be active when you see people in need. Do you notice when people around us needs a helping hand? A sense of community is created when people are kind to those who need help. Sometimes people just need to hear some encouraging and kind words in order to bring a smile to their face, so why not just do it already? Being kind to someone could change their entire day if you let it. Try and put this to the test by complimenting someone today, or maybe even reach out to one of your friends and let them know that you are proud of them. The little things mean the most to people and go a long way, so be kind to others and get some good karma on your side.


People may not remember what you said, or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel. Why not leave them with something positive this season. The holidays arrive each year with an abundance of expectations. We’re expected to be having fun and feeling joy, to be surrounded by loved ones and a warm, connected family to which we effortlessly belong. We’re expected to be busy and enjoying all sorts of exciting and festive activities, doing special holiday things. In short, we’re expected to be happy…well, actually, not just happy, happier than we are at any other time of the year. There are people out there who struggle every single day to get out of bed and do normal life things, so if they hear something negative, it could set them over the edge. That is why I think it is crucial for people to be kind to others and just learn to stop being so mean and hateful. The truth is, many people do not have warm and loving families to go home to, relatives with whom they feel they genuinely belong. Many are not busy with exciting and interesting things to do throughout the season. And the fact that they aren’t having the holiday season they’re expected to have makes them feel even worse about themselves — less joyful and less happy. It can be as simple as a smiling at someone, giving up your old wears to someone who cannot afford it, or buying food for the hungry, homeless man. It’s a way of connecting, if only for a short moment, with those people we pass in our daily lives. Everyone is affected by an act of kindness. Kindness is contagious and you never know just how big of an impact a small gesture of kindness can have.

There are many ways to be kind and many opportunities to practice. Perhaps kindness is a value that could add more satisfaction to and strengthen your relationships. It doesn’t have to cost anything, either; what’s important is that it’s an act of expressing genuine care for another person. In fact, there’s no limit to the ways in which we can be kind to others – all we need to do is pay attention to those around us and start seeing opportunities to help! Whatever it might be for you, give yourself the space to honor the transition that this season brings and to welcome its gifts with open arms. We must reorient ourselves towards kindness, compassion, service, love, and simplicity — the qualities that this season’s teachings are all about.


Treating Someone As They Ought To Be

Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others. If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
you can easily judge


Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Throughout history there have been many who have defied those with negative attitudes around them. Because of their willingness to fight against the negative energy around them they were able to leave behind impeccable legacies for the rest of mankind to follow after. In the lives of these great people there were many who stood along their paths being negative and casting opinions of them that could have only tore them down if they had listened.

Don’t be one of these naysayers in the life of anyone. Appreciate people the same way as you want them to appreciate you. And if people start to acknowledge others work, the world can become a better place with so many skilled and knowledgeable people. Appreciation also help individuals to further specialize in their fields. For instance, if you acknowledge a designer, he will not only like “the nice words”, but will also work ever harder so as to maintain the same level of knowledge and creativity.

Never tell someone that they cant accomplish dreams or goals that they truly believe in.. There is a huge difference between criticism that will help a person build versus criticism that will only tear a person down. Throughout life, people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too. Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.

Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people. Choose your words wisely, and be sure that everything that you say or do can be used for good and not for negativity. Be an encouragement!

True Love Is Rare

True love is rare, and it’s the only thing that gives life real meaning.
To truly love, we must first know God. Love starts with God and ends with God because God is love. Most people’s idea of “true love” looks something like this: Mr. or Mrs. Right is waiting out there somewhere, “the One” they are destined to be with. And that special someone is looking for them too, and it’s only a matter of time before they meet each other—and of course, they’ll both live happily ever after. True love isn’t here to hold you back, and to make you feel like you aren’t good enough for this world alone. True love builds you up and actually helps you to believe quite the opposite.

True love doesn’t happen right away; it’s an ever-growing process. It develops after you’ve gone through many ups and downs, when you’ve suffered together, cried together, laughed together. If you find yourself being dismayed, and deflated every time you deal with someone that supposedly loves you, chances are it isn’t real love. If you find yourself not believing in yourself and wondering if you can even do what you dream of doing because of the opinions of someone who loves you, it isn’t real love.

Love isn’t something that is derived from within us. It is radical. It is supernatural. For the kind of love that God calls us to–the love that loves our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. A real love will not bring you down, a real love will bring you up. A real love wouldn’t lie to you, instead it will tell you truths that will help you build yourself up to get to your dreams.

True love is selfless. It is prepared to sacrifice. True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart. Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy. A real loving relationship will help both parties involved move up in life, not remain stagnant, and not deteriorate. Take heed to this, and remember to only allow real relationships in your life.

Love When You’re Ready, Not When You’re Lonely

You’ve been searching and searching but you still haven’t found “The One” yet. You’re a great catch and date often, but just can’t seem to find the right person! Love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.
Love is a very difficult area to conquer in life, and finding that someone who is really going to be there forever seems almost impossible these days. In fact, this belief is so prevalent that many people don’t even think about marriage until much later in their adult lives.
Love works best when it’s shared, not acquired, or desired, or longed for. If we have developed a healthy relationship with ourselves and have generated ample amount of love from within, then we’ll have plenty to put out into the world. We shouldn’t be putting out the love in hopes that we get it back, but simply because we have it to give and enjoy giving it. There are many factors for the recent disbelief in long term relationships and one key reason is the fact that people are choosing to allow themselves to enter into relationships before they are truly ready. When you quit being judgmental of every little “flaw” and start becoming comfortable with who you are, you’ll be able to offer the same accepting and loving attitude to someone else as well.

One of the easiest things to do is to enter into a relationship with someone else. While one of the most difficult things to do is actually maintain a committed relationship with someone. Once you’ve fallen in love deeply, you yearn for that love; you wish to find it again. You become lonely. You begin to fantasize and create a reality that doesn’t actually exist. Then you fall in love with someone unworthy of it.

The truth is, you won’t know until you find the next person you truly fall in love with. It is for this reason that we must be willing to examine ourselves before we allow ourselves to enter into relationships with others. If you aren’t comfortable with who you are yet, you simply aren’t really going to know what you really desire from a partner in life. Not the time you spend with a phone glued to your ear or the time you spend on social media that really matter, but some real “me time”?  If so, that’s a big indicator that you aren’t just looking for a relationship to fill a lonely void, and you’re ready for love.

Being alone doesn’t need to be cured, it’s a mindset, it needs to be embraced. There are people in relationships who still feel alone. There are people in crowded rooms and still feel alone. There are authors who sit and type for hours by themselves, but feel crowded by the characters in their minds. Make wise decisions when you are choosing to open your heart for love. Don’t rush or force it, but don’t run from it when you recognize either.

So, do you hold yourself back from loving until you’re sure it’s real? No. If it ends up being real, then you’ve made it. If not, then you surely had a good time for a good stretch, and because you now know you weren’t in love, moving on will be easy. Live and love as much as you can. Those will be the stories you tell when you’re old and wrinkled.

To Fall In Love With God Is The Greatest Romance

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Because the greatest achievement for any human being is to love God, yourself, and others.

Love thyself. In the same ways that you hope others show kindness to you, show it to yourself. The same ways that you wish for others to love you, you must first love yourself. In the same ways that you wish people will respect who you are as a person, respect yourself.

Knowing who you are and your purpose on this earth is a very essential trait to achieve success. Without these things no matter what accolades a person achieves, they will mean nothing when being compared to honors they could still receive if they choose to walk within their purpose. People treat you exactly the way you unconsciously treat yourself and one of the most powerful ways to transform your life is to become consciously aware of your beliefs and feelings about yourself and aware that you’re surrounded by magnificent love every moment of your life.

Gratitude is the key to fulfillment. Gratitude and self-worth come hand in hand, and great worth comes from gratefully fulfilling our dreams.Be gracious and show gratitude for everything God has given you by giving back to others. Show that you are willing to grow by accepting that parts of you need to change, and actively taking steps to fix them. Don’t tell God how to answer your prayers or fix the situation, but expect Him to show up. Our God is for us and with us. We can be sure He’ll answer us according to His wisdom. You have but to ask and He will fight for you.

But most of all, know that you are a special individual, and the world will benefit greatly from your person. Be you!

Remember This Before You Criticize Someone

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.
It is very easy to criticize and demean what you don’t understand. The more difficult thing to do would be for one to try to figure out how to best help people.

Every one is a result of their experiences. The choices that they have made in the past, the unanticipated variables that we all encounter, and the choices we make in the present on the daily show us who we really are.

So when you see that person that seems to be struggling in life make it a point not to beat up on them. Make it a point to help where you know that you can. Even if that means just giving them a minute long conversation and showing them that there are still people who care. It’s the small gestures of love and compassion from each other that the world needs almost more than anything right now.

Let Us Touch The Dying, The Poor, The Lonely And The Unwanted

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
One thing that we should never be too proud, too busy, too ashamed, or too good to do is to take care of the people who are less fortunate than us. We should not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go and let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.

Many want to blame our dependence upon government on our governments without actually realizing that at some point things started to get worse and worse, and people refused to take the action that they really could have taken in order to help stop people from dying, and to help prevent people from remaining poor with nowhere to go because they are most unwanted in our societies. We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

We must never be ashamed to stand up for the man who has less than we have. In fact, providing for those who don’t have much is really honored by God if we really do things from the bottom of our hearts. We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

Love begins by taking care of the closest ones, the ones at home. Make an effort, help those who are less fortunate than yourselves, make the world a better place by helping whoever you can, even if that means you give less than you would really like to, people need to see your light shine!
