I ended my blog the other day with my usual tag of Love, Goldi – Searching for the perfect life in a perfect world…but then I added something that has been on my mind for a while. “Remember that to make a difference in the world we need to begin with ourselves. The choices that we make influences everyone around us, and to change any part, changes the whole.” Whatever we do, say, or feel has a rippling effect…if someone walks into the room with a really positive happy outlook, and is boiling over with enthusiasm. You feel it! It makes you start feeling more optimistic, and then it makes who you are around feel a little better, and so on, and so on. Think about it…if everyone just genuinely smiled, even if the thoughts and feelings of gratitude came from the place of Thank God that I have the ability to smile, the world would be a better place. The same weight is placed on our actions and the choice we make. Have you ever noticed if one person moves into a neighborhood and straightens the house and yard up, that it makes everyone else want to do the same. It makes everyone want to be better. So I think our job is the same whether we choose to be Doctors, Housewives, or Automotive Mechanics, we are to be happy with what we choose to do, and we are to do it the best that we can. If we are not, then we need to find what brings us joy. Do not compare yourself with others, just do what feels right for you. Take care of yourself physically and mentally, so that others feel the joy. Choose what is best for you, and you will help make the world a better place!
Just a thought!
Searching for a perfect life in a perfect world…smile!
