Happy World Kindness Day

 

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:24-25 (NIV)

Today is World Kindness Day! How awesome is that?

And did you know the World Kindness Movement started World Kindness Day in 1998 or that its observation has since spread to 28 countries? No? Well, neither did I but you can go here to learn more.

In a nutshell then, our focus today is simple: we have to be kinder and more considerate of others, we have to show love and genuine compassion for our fellow humans, and most of all we have to remember that it does not cost a lot of money if any at all to simply be … kind; just ask Glen Campbell and then in kindness, share this post 🙂

Sea + Sand + Sun = Rare Fun For Me :)

calm seas in grand cayman

Grand Cayman, paddle boards, beach, fun

Here in the Caribbean we enjoy Summer all year long but it’s during the months of July and August that the sea and sand bathed under fluffy clouds and a hot sun call to us the most … maybe because that’s when we have the most fun of all.

Feet under waves

But interestingly enough, it is really quite rare for me to even make it to the beach, far less letting the soothing waters caress my toes. You can live right by the seaside and never make it into the waves and that’s why I love this last photo here a lot 🙂

“If you’re not having fun it’s not worth doing.” ~ Tommy Bolin

“Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.” ~ Regina Brett

Dr. Wayne Dyer’s 20 Quotes to Help you Become a Better YOU :)

 

the journey is the destination

There is always room for improvement in our lives i.e. to become even better and Dr. Wayne Dyer knew this to be a fact. Here are 20 quotes compliments of www.entrepreneur.com.

1. “Circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him.”

2. “If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t you will see obstacles.”

3. “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”

4. “With everything that has happened to you, you can feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”

5. “Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”

6. “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”

7. “Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.”

8. “Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are empowers you.”

9. “How people treat you is their karma. How you react is yours.”

10. “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”

11. “Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.”  Read more
