Every time I see an opportunity

Every time I see an opportunity to help others, I do so joyfully

I am willing to help anyone I meet who is in need, and I do so joyfully. I consider myself fortunate to have the means to help others.

I believe that small gestures really do matter. A cathedral would be but a foundation without the blocks that give it shape. A symphony would be flat noise without the notes that compose it.

Likewise, when I act kindly or generously, I help give shape to the goodness in the world. When I assist a neighbor who's moving furniture or when I give a cup of coffee to the homeless man on the corner, I am fully aware that I am not changing the world with my actions. And yet, I know that I am contributing to making the world a better place. After all, each gesture can have a significant impact.

I believe that giving to others not only helps the recipient, but me as well. What I send out comes back to me, ten-fold, sometimes in kind but often in a form that is different but equally valuable.

When I give generously and without expectation of fanfare, I expand my spirit and open myself up to receive much good in return.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I appreciate or resent those who need my help?
2. In what ways have I been physically, emotionally, or spiritually rewarded by helping others?
3. What opportunities to help others have I passed up because I felt the gesture was too small to matter?

I appreciate and acknowledge the love and support I receive from my family

I would be nothing without the love and support of my family. My family is not only my support but also the foundation for who I am. My family is always there for me when I need them.

I am blessed to have such an incredible family. Daily, I thank God for my family. I also make it a point to regularly thank my family for their presence in my life and for being just who they are. I truly feel privileged to have my family’s support in all of my endeavors.

Hearing a word of praise from a member of my family means the world to me. They cheer me on when I am winning. My family accepts me when I come up short. No matter how the game is going, they are always in my corner.

Fame is meaningless to me. An ovation from a cheering crowd of strangers pales in comparison to the pleasure I get from my family’s admiration. My purpose in life involves more than mere fame and fortune. It involves making a difference in the lives of others.

My family pushes me to be my best and to live the best life that I was created to live. They teach me virtues that will get me to the place I want to be. When life begins to cloud my view, my family keeps me focused on my dreams.

I treasure my relationship with my family like gold; hard times are the fire that refines that gold. Going through hard times together strengthens our bond. Even the moments with my family that I do not wish to re-live have taught me valuable lessons that help me be a better person today.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    When was the last time I called a family member to thank them?
2.    How has my family's love and support changed the course of my life?
3.    What can I do, today, to show my family that I appreciate them?
 

Mind quotes

Meditation brings wisdom. Lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
