“Every morning on the way to work, for many years, I have seen a woman walking her dog. Regardless of whether it was raining, sunny, windy snowy, or cold, they were faithful in walking together. And through their actions was obvious how much they loved and cared about each other.
This morning on my way to work, I noticed her walking alone. I have never spoken to her before, but was compelled to turn around and stop and speak. I introduced myself and I mentioned that I had seen her everyday walking with her dog and asked about him.
She said he had died from rat poison that had been left out by someone else. I expressed my sorrow for her. She said she was just so grateful for the years they had together, that they were good, and best friends and companions.
She also expressed gratitude for me noticing and stopping to connect. We exchanged info and I let her know she could help walk my dogs any time. She liked that idea.
Who knows what Divine Interventions are being played out…
I was reminded of my own Mari, my beloved canine, who has been more close to me in Spirit lately…God, I miss her and am so grateful for the years we had.
Reach out. Make a connection. You never know what might happen and whose life might be changed because of it.
It’s all about being In Touch In Life.”
20. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF.
One of the most painful things in life is losing yourself in the process of loving others too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
When was the last time someone told you that they loved you just the way you are, and that what you think and how you feel matters?
When was the last time someone told you that you did a good job, or took you someplace, simply because they know you feel happy when you’re there?
When was the last time that ‘someone’ was YOU?
19. IGNORE UNCONSTRUCTIVE, HURTFUL COMMENTARY.
No one has the right to judge you.
They might have heard your stories, but they didn’t feel what you were going through.
No matter what you do, there will always be someone who thinks differently. So concentrate on doing what you know in your heart is right.
What most people think and say about you isn’t all that important.
What is important is how you feel about yourself.
18. LEAVE PETTY ARGUMENTS ALONE.
Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.
There are many roads to what’s right.
And most of the time it just doesn’t matter that much.
17. TALK A LITTLE LESS, AND LISTEN MORE.
Less advice is often the best advice.
People don’t need lots of advice, they need a listening ear and some positive reinforcement.
What they want to know is often already somewhere inside of them.
They just need time to think, be and breathe, and continue to explore the undirected journeys that will eventually help them find their direction.
