I was reading a great article the other day which stated that we all have a list. This list contains people who need us or has needed us at some point, in some way in their lives. They are our personal assignments that we are destined to help achieve, get through or overcome something. Or perhaps just to help make their lives a little bit better and brighter. When you look at life like this, each interaction that you have throughout the day can put a new person on your list if you want it to.
It is sad that most people experience some sort of pain on a daily basis because of the selfish, thoughtless behavior of others that has been
occurring throughout time. Just as there have probably been people like me, who have realized the pain that we might have caused others, not only by what we said to or about someone but also by the things we didn’t say or the small acts we didn’t do, when they might have made all the difference to someone else’s outlook on life and experience. It amazes me that so much anger and unhappiness could be avoided in life if we would just take a moment to say the kind word or do the thoughtful act for someone. These are the little pieces of hell we perpetrate on ourselves and others throughout our lives. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We always have a choice.
For many people, including myself, there are times in life where we are not sure what to do next. A new situation confronts us, we have to move left or tack right, something is headed right for us! What do we do?
Now for me, either because of the way I was brought up or because I am just a very stubborn person asking anyone for help or advice is almost always out of the question because, it would reveal to the world, gasp, “I don’t know everything.”
