August 22nd- Be an Angel Day

 Today is August 22nd- It is the National Be an Angel day in the US. Why not let it be a ” Be an Angel day ” for each of us ?

It is in accordance with the theme for today – to give.

This is a special day in which we are reminded of being an angel in someone else’s life. 

1. Can I be kind today and not complaining about what I don’t have ?

2. Can I forgive someone who has wronged me ?  Reach out to them and say I forgive you.

3. Can I thank people who make my life better ? Little deeds that make my day complete, but which I completely ignore.

4. Can I be patient today ? Let someone move ahead of me in a queue or allow someone to get into the road when I am driving by waiting a bit.

5. Can I pay it forward ? Start off a chain of kindnesses- like in the Movie. 

6. Can I pray for others, who need and do not need my prayers ?

7. Can I share some of my things with others – my clothes, my books, my time, anything of me ?

8. CAn I surprise some one today- like send an email to some one who wants to connect with me ? Or an e card ? Or write a note for some one today ?

9. Can I share my talents with someone else ? Can I do some volunteer work ?

10. Can I be kind to the birds, the bees and the animals, and plants around me today ?

 Do a good deed today.Pay it forward. 


Friday’s – a day to be loving and giving

           Today is a Friday, the start of the weekend for people in many countries. But even during times of relaxation, we need not falter from our path of motivating ourselves. 

Today is a day of giving- remember the old poem- Friday’s child is loving and giving. It is a continuation of the thought of yesterday- to join up with others in order to create a strong construction in one’s life. As you receive, so you need to give. 

So I have resolved today, to read through as many posts as I can with a sincere heart and offer heart felt comments- a kind word can make someone else’s day. I was reading Marsha O’Brien’s posts today and in spite of so much pain, she has so much to give. I really need to be like her. A kind word can go a long way. For that matter, even a kind thought. Most of my day is spent on my previous life and how I would love to revenge someone from my past life. I am making a resolution, here and now to think a kind thought for each of those persons’ who I feel has wronged me. May be I can call them or write to them and say I still think of them, not mentioning of course that I have thought evil thoughts about them. 

Action points for me :

1.Listen to my child when she talks 

2. Appreciate my spouse through a smile or a kind word

3. Contact one of my ” enemies” and try to talk to them 

4. Comment on someone I don’t know yet’s posts

5. Smile at an unknown person today

6. Be kind to an animal or bird today
