Friday Frills



Today I will search for the goodness in everyone I meet. I will remember that light reflects off the whole world around me, and that how I view it depends on the glasses I choose to wear. 

Today I will walk through doors and lives knowing that it is my contributions, and not my comments that shape the world around me. It is not the big things, but the little things for which I will best be remembered. I will choose my words more carefully, and allow them to heal and not wound.

Today I will feed where there is hunger, I will comfort where there is loneliness and I will listen to the words, the music and the rhythm of those with whom I share my life. I will bring love where there is hatred, fight for what is right, make amends for any wrongs I may have done and ask forgiveness from those I have harmed. 

Today is a blessing and a gift, that's why it called The Present.

Runaway In LA said...

You are one talented writer and have a way with words! ;) Love the everyday perspective of choosing which glasses to wear. It really does make you rethink of how you should value each day of your life. Your last line is my favorite and I know for a fact I need to focus on living my life in the present instead of constantly living in the past or in the future. Very inspirational!

Hello Sam,
thank you for passing by. I'm sorry that I'm not here lately but I've been busy writing my dissertation lately. As part of it I prepared a questionnaire for shopping clothes online. It would be great if you answered it as well.

Have a nice weekend dear Sam...

Mira said...

What an amazing quote. Wish more people would live like that. Some just want to fight and spread hatred. Thanks for cheering me up Sam. That's why you can't right click. I had no idea that they were copying you but on the other hand only the good ones get copied. No one steals from the bad haha. Yes that's what I'm doing. I just click after I commented and it works perfectly. Have a happy Friday Sam :D

And second of all - a truthful statement, I remember reading something similar about "the present" and it is written here beautifully ;)
