As we go through our daily life, working, taking care of kids and parents, shopping, reading, and doing everything else that we are busy doing, what stands out? After the blur of the day, when we’ve forgotten most of it, we remember the slogans, quotes and words of wisdom that touch us. These simple yet profound phrases stop us in our tracks and capture our attention. Often, they have universal appeal because they communicate effectively to the masses, yet speak to us individually. They seem to reach us at our core and tug at those emotional cords, hiding deep within.
Sometimes, I would sit at night and read books filled with famous quotes. Taking a few hours from my busy schedule just to seek the wisdom within those pages, I would emerge feeling enriched, nurtured and renewed. I loved those times but as I got busier with clients I had less time for this activity. In fact, I hardly ever do this now but then again I really don’t need to.
With the onset of Facebook and Twitter in my world, I have a steady stream of uplifting phrases coming to me by way of posts. My friends are generous, caring, human beings concerned about spreading hope, happiness and encouragement to others. I consider myself very lucky to be privy to such a group and I try hard to do my part by passing on uplifting slogans, empowering quotes and much needed words of wisdom.
While I don’t say often enough how much I value these people, I feel the need to say publicly how much these posts mean to me. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say they have made and continue to make a huge difference in my life.
What about yours?
What are you doing to make yours count? How have people’s posts affected you and your walk through this world? I’d love some feedback on this one. All ideas are welcome.
