Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eyes of one who sees

Rumi

For those who do not look or don’t want to see, there is no beauty in life. And for those who have eyes open for all that is wonderful, they can find beauty in even a single leaf or a blade of grass. Keep your eyes towards the sunny side!

Silent gratitude isn’t t much use to anyone.

G B Stern

This resonates with me so much. I am sure like me you also have come across many people, mostly family and friends for whom you do a lot and it basically goes un-acknowledged! They would tell you that they are grateful for what you do for them in their hearts, but they don’t tell you that.

I know that expecting gratitude sounds petty, but it is only human to expect acknowledgement for a good deed, even if it’s a smile or a slight gesture. I always express my gratitude verbally and try to either return the favor or pay it forward, or do both.

 “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” ― Mother Teresa

(Last week I read on a blog post that if it is a one-Liner why is it followed by a lot of other lines)

My apologies, but I still would like to elaborate on this fantastic quote by one of the kindest woman know to us in modern history. Being kind doesn’t cost anything. Not even time and effort because a smile is kindness too. Try to do something each day that can make someone, anyone happy. Believe me you will the echoes of that act all through your day, just like ripples in the water.

This quote has always resonated with me on so many levels;

We have to stop looking at life as if it should be an easy ride, a walk in the park or something we would sail by as if we are in a fairytale. Life is a challenge, a test and it has to be hard.

One can not escape making wrong decisions. That is how we learn. And living is all about learning! So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, we all do. But don’t stop living because you are afraid of making the wrong choices.

“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers

Fred Rogers

Who doesn’t know Mister Rogers and his wise words. This is particularly relevant in these times as listening to others with full attention gives them a feeling of hopefulness. We may not be able to resolve all or any of their problems but we can be there fo them.

” It takes patience to listen…. it takes skill to pretend you’re listening

Have you ever been in a situation where you are trapped in a corner and have to listen to a monologue which is putting you to sleep. Acquire this skill.
