Valentine’s Day/Single Awareness Day – Spread Love!

Today I’m celebrating my first Valentine in ten years.  I’m in the mushy gushy stage that makes this day so great! However, after spending so many Valentines days alone, I’m acutely aware of what it feels like to be alone. I’m sure you may know someone like this; the single mom or dad, your coworker that just moved into town, a neighbor, a friend, or may be yourself.

What if on this Valentine’s Day we took the time to show our love, to everyone that we came into contact with today. If your alone, buy yourself some flowers, chocolate, and something good for dinner tonight, and while your at the store buy something for someone that you know is alone or is going through a difficult time. If your in a relationship, do the same thing. While buying your love a gift pick up a card, a rose, or something to share with another. Imagine what the world would look like if we all shared this love…

We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth. George Bernard Shaw

Take care of yourself, take care of others – let’s spread the Love we have to share,… It’s Easy!

Just a thought!

Life’s Compounding Interest-Nothing Happens and Then Everything Happens

“Nothing happens, and nothing happens, and then everything happens.” – Fay Weldon

Compound interest is where interest is collected and added to the principle amount invested so that the principle plus the interest are now earning interest. I have thought of it mostly in regards to finance, and still remember the story told to me by one of my high school teachers.  He said two friends were playing golf.  The first friend said; “lets bet $25 dollars on each hole”. The other friend said; “No, lets bet $1 on the first hole and then double it at each hole.”  The first friend thought the other friend wanted to keep the match friendly and the stakes low, even though they both were well off, and agreed to start at $1. By the time they reached the eighth hole the friend was laughing thinking his friend really put it to him, as that hole would cost him $128.  By the fourteenth hole, and at $4096, it wasn’t funny anymore. By the time he reached the eighteenth hole the bet was a whopping $131,072.

I drive through two neighborhoods, one is a new and is without any trees or natural beauty. The second neighborhood is older with big majestic trees and mature landscaping. One house in particular has rock and stone paths, a water fall and pond, flower beds, shrubs and trees all perfectly placed.  The type of landscaping that only evolves after time and effort.

I started blogging about a year ago and using twitter and about a month ago.  In both cases it was slow going getting my first followers. In fact, it seem like forever, but then one came and then eventually another, and now that I have several it seems that they are coming quicker.  Like a snowball running down hill.  It just keeps getting bigger and faster as it goes.

Life is like that.  We have to plant our seeds, continue to do the work, and one day we will look up and see what we have created…

Just a thought…
