A new month. Wow! Is anyone else feeling like January and February flew past them without a how do you do?
Why is that?
For me, I’ve realized how often I end the day feeling completely spent and get up to rinse and repeat.
I don’t like that. I’ve lost site of the joy in simple things being buried in busyness.
I choose my new notebook because of its cover. I will use it every day for my to do list and notes.
I’m a list maker. 😃
Two things in particular I am focusing on.
One – make a difference. I’m not feeling like I do this recently. I want to. I’m hitting the reset button.
Two – speak kindly. It’s not that I don’t do this, it’s that I want to do more.
I believe the two actions above are intertwined. Being kind does and will make a difference. Words followed by actions are powerful.
I’m not talking about solving world hunger, but I can buy someone lunch or help carry their bags to their car.
How about that elderly neighbor? Maybe I could drop in and say hello.
I guess what I’ve realized as March blows in is I need to look up from my everyday whirlwind activity and pay attention – really look and speak – to the people around me.
At the end of the day when I lay my head down, I’d like to know I made a difference.
