Reflections

it’s been a week.  

After witnessing the community outpouring for Deputy Goforth.  After going to a funeral with 11,000 people.  Seeing the beauty and strength of a young mother, widowed too soon.  Seeing lovely children send their father off with tribute.  After loving up my family and letting them know how much I appreciate them…….it happened.

A whiner.  A complainer.  A dark cloud of negative energy imposed themselves into the sunshine that I had walked myself.

I have something special for them .

  
Cheers to keeping complaints to yourself.  You have no clue what someone next to you may be going through, as I have no clue.

I’m so grateful today for clearer perspective, a smidgen more wisdom, and an opportunity to give to someone else’s life.

Isn’t that what it’s all about?  Isn’t it about what we give?  What we sow?  

What if the Random Act of Kindness we give was the ultimate reward we receive?

What would you do different?

Please share.

  1. I like your suggestion for whiners. Whining seldom makes anything better and it often spirals a situation down quickly. What would I / do I do differently? I try to remember that I am not in control of much – but I am in control of my attitude.

    • I agree. I find the look on their faces comical when I walk off during their complaints. But I always give them room to come back with something positive. 😮
      Probably not the best plan, but it keeps people in my life longer.
      I just don’t like enabling people to keep wallowing.
