You know that giddy feeling you get when someone compliments your good works? Yes, that is very important. Everyone should feel that from time to time. Working hard and not seeing your work being appreciated really does feel terrible.
We don’t have to give everyone an award for doing their job well. Sometimes, all it takes is a small token of appreciation. You could give them a pat on the back accompanied by “Good Job!” or maybe a cup of coffee. There are many ways in which you could appreciate someone.
I know that too much compliments may lead someone to think they are invincible. But no compliments at all will lead to despair and disappointments.
A comment or two may be just what the person needs to go on with their hard work on that day. These little encouragements will get them through their hardest days. It is a wonder how small encouragements moves people to accomplish great things.
So, go out there and be generous with your appreciation of others. Appreciation is very contagious, much like kindness. Who knows, it may come around back to you.
We were always told to stick to what we know. What if I told you that was not the case? We can all try new things. If we are lucky, we might find what we love. If not, then we can still keep trying.
I recently started writing fan-fiction. To those who don’t know what it is, it is basically making up stories using characters that already exists. It was something new for me. I was very excited. Then I came to find that people loved it.
Another thing is blogging. I have been blogging everyday for a while now. Having people read my blogs makes me feel happy. This is how I give back to the community. I feel that I am making a change.
Now, I am excited for the future. I am excited to try many other things. Exploring my passions is something I would love to do. So, get out there and who knows, you may find something that you love to do!
As Christians, we sometimes feel as though we are “less sinful” than others. Believe me, I have been through that. But now, I know that we are all sinful regardless. We have lost the message that God has sent to us. Love thy neighbor as thyself.
That love is unconditional love. When God said to love, there were no conditions. They did not have believe in the same things as us. They did not have to be only Christians. There were no requirements.
Today in church, I looked around. There were many people. But I still felt that there were people who are meant to be at church who were not. Those are the so called “sinners.”
Why were they not in church? Maybe they felt as though they were not holy enough.
Remember when Jesus dined with the bad and naughty? Shouldn’t we follow in his example? Jesus showed us how to love. We just need to follow.
Sometimes, love does not mean telling people that they are wrong. It could be just sharing a meal, being a friend, taking them in for a night etc. All that is love. God will do the rest.
So go out there and just love. If God can love them, so can you.
There were many things I wished I could do. I could only dream of riding a roller coaster and have fun like others. However, me doing it for real is a one way ticket to the hospital (motion sickness).
However, there are other more doable things that I have tried. I tried filming makeup looks. That was fun. I enjoyed showing the world how I do my makeup. It was something that was new to me.
I also tried blogging everyday. I feel that everyone could use some motivation. So, here is where I share some little things that I have learnt everyday. This is my way of inspiring the world and making it a better place.
So go out there and do the one or many things that you have always wanted. Trying out something new is always good as long as it does not harm or injure you.
I was flying today, again. No, not the superhero flying but the airplane flying. Now, for someone who overthinks like me, flying is rather stressful.
So, the best way to help and cope with it is to change my mindset. That way, flying is still scary but it wont bother me that much anymore.
Think positive! If you think the plane will crash, you won’t have a good time. So, think that the plane will fly smoothly and land beautifully. Repeat it like a mantra. That is what I call positive thinking.
You will be amazed how thinking can chamge how you feel and act. Positive thinking will get you good vibes all day!
Have we lost our imagination? Or did we just grow up?
Sometimes I wonder how different the world will be if we all thought about things like children. What would change?
Maybe making friends would be easier. Politics would not exist, of course. Love would be unconditional love. We would have peace.
The world would be so much simpler in that way. Sometimes, we need think like a child. The solution to a problem may be staring at you.
Perfection is a myth. There is nothing on earth that is perfect. So why do we let perfection rule our lives?
I used to and still am a perfectionist. I never do anything wihout being at least 65% sure that I have the knowledge and skills to do it. It is tough.
Through my experience, I realized that mistakes are supposed to be made sometimes. That is how we learn right from wrong. Trust me, I wish I had made more mistakes in the past.
Being afraid of mistakes can often rob me of many opportunities. I wouldn’t take that offer to sing on atage because I may make a fool of myself or maybe write that one story because no one will like it.
Therefore, I made it a point to try. I lowered that percentage to about 35% these days. It has done me well. I have broadened my horizons and done things that I thought I would fail at.
The trick is to accepting that mistakes are not there to hurt you. Mistakes are the best teachers you could ever ask for. So go out there and take a chance!
