True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.- C.S. Lewis
Just a reminder peeps, be kind, care, show respect to everyone, no matter if it’s the janitor, or the CEO. Also have understanding and do something for nothing.
Love the people in your life, don’t take people for granted and cherish every second.
If someone’s been edgy and rude towards you, instead of replying in a similar way, or judging that person try finding out why that person might be behaving like that. Why ?? And be polite whilst finding out. People go through a lot and tend to keep it to themselves . At times people just need someone to share their story with, even if you just have to sit there and listen….. just listen to what the person have to say …. it makes a huge difference. You don’t have to say anything.
All what a person might need is for someone to just listen to them.
You never know if you’ll reach that person again… you don’t really don’t when’s the last time you’re meeting someone … so my advise to all is be kind and be careful what you say to people. People always remember you how kind you are to them.
Life is a gift and it can be taken away from us in a split second. A second means so much . Believe me. A few months ago I was in a horrific situation. I was at work and we were been robbed… the robber obviously was with a weapon and it was a second more myself and a coworker would have been face to face with the robber.. and god knows what could have happened.
“If selfishness is the key to being miserable, then selflessness must be the key to being happy!” – Joyce Meyer
No matter what position you hold in life, you should never put down another because of your higher position.
All people have feelings. And even a simple “hi, hello, good morning,good night, thank you or you’re welcome” can make someone’s day, even if it’s the janitor or the yard man.
Be nice you never know what someone is going through. Also kindness goes a long way.
Everyone’s gotta start from somewhere.
Here’s a piece I found and thought of sharing;
“During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: “What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?” Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. “Absolutely,” the professor said. “In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello.” I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.”

Some people fail to realize that material things don’t matter.
In today’s society it’s mostly about money. People are so focused on what brand name footwear, jeans, what fancy car or house to get and they get so caught up about the materialistic living forgetting about that one that matters the most …..family.
When they do realize that none of those things matter they come to regret it.
There’s no need to impress anyone with material things, people should be impressed of your kindness and love for others.
It’s the time you spend with people, the memories you make, the love and kindness that you share with the people around you.. that’s what matters.
Don’t be impressed by money, followers, degrees and titles. Be impressed by kindness, integrity, humility and generosity.
