fromme2u: 10 Easy Things You Wish You’re Not Ignoring In Life
Every day we choose how and what will happen to our day and from each day experience we form what we call life.
Life for the most part consists of choices we make in day-to-day activities.
When I was thinking about life and time we have to live.
That’s when I comprises this ten daily easy things I see simple to ignore but though remain important to me.
There are a lot of things to enjoy, things to do, things to work for.
That’s when it caught me in the middle of all that. I might get carried away and forget for I just know
Life is short
This is what I thought not to be ignoring
1. To Be Thankfully.
One of the many reason life is life, it’s not always easy to find a reason, behind everything that happens to you and that’s confusing sometimes.
I hope it won’t bring you to a point of forgetting to be thankfully. I know in spite of all those unknown, you’re still here, you are still breathing, and you’re still good-looking :) that’s some good right?
I know you might not be where you want to be but you are not where you used to be
In spite of knowing why this happened or not knowing why this didn’t happen, be thankfully.
2. To Be a Blessing To Someone Else.
What I have realized even you, have moments when you feel down, you feel things are not moving or happening the way you wish they will.
You might meet someone and the first encounter turns not to be very good. It might be because you have the reasons why not to like the person or it just turn bad. But believe me
“Every one you meet is fighting a hard battle” Be kind.
3. To Be Positive Minded.
The other day I was reading an article when I come across this story of a parent calling to his son’s school; this is how it went down.
“Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school.
In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all the options before making a selection:
- To lie about why your child is absent – Press 1
- To make excuses for why your child did not do his work – Press 2
- To complain about what we do – Press 3
- To swear at staff members – Press 4
- To ask why you didn’t get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you – Press 5
- If you want us to raise your child – Press 6
- If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone – press 7
- To request another teacher, for the third time this year – press 8
- To complain about bus transportation – Press 9
- To complain about school lunches – Press 0
- If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework and that it’s not all the teachers’ fault for your child’s lack of effort: Hang up and have a nice day!
Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of how things turn out, be positive minded.
4. To Count Your Blessings.
What I have learned we forget very easily especial the good things the small blessings. So it’s not bad if you start to count your blessings today.
As this gentlemen went to see a therapist on regards of his family problems.
He was complaining from what a terrible job he has, what a terrible boss he have, how unfair he is especially after he just passed him for this month promotion
It just seems like nothing good has happened to him so far. I took a moment his therapist was getting a pen and a paper. He started talking while writing down,
Therapist: “So you wife is dead”
Gentlemen: “No, my wife is alive, who told you that”
Therapist: “You house is burned down?”
Gentlemen:”No, my house if fine! Who is telling you all this, give me that pen”
While grabbing the paper and stating writing down while whispering “You should get this things right”.
Writing, “My wife is alive, I have a house, I have a happy family, I have health family and on and on” after few minutes of doing that. He said Wow, this feels pretty good.
You see why counting is important, it keep a track record of what is important, so you see you’re blessed after all.
5. To Don’t Give Up Especial On Yourself.
For 15 years doctors told Aurthur he would never walk unassisted again. He accepted this as a fact.
He was 47 years old with 297 pounds disabled veteran, and he basically had given up. Was Injured as paratrooper (military parachutists) in the gulf war too many jumps took its toll on his back and knees. He gained weight A lot of weight.
Couldn’t walk or run. He was turned up by most of Yoga instructors. Wouldn’t you have given up? Someone believed in him. He started believing it could happen.
He started improving himself step by step, after 6 month he had already lost 100 pounds and now he could walk though by using a cane. At 10 month period he lost 140 pounds, and now not only he could walk but also he was running.
You see never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. Many people will be willing to tell you, you can’t do this or you won’t but never say it on yourself.
Don’t let someone else opinion of you become your reality. For our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain ways to succeed is always to try just one,more time.
6. Wishing To Be Somebody Else.
This one might seem like a no catch, but for sure not so many of people who inspire you today where like that. They had to pass through a lot to reach there. See
“He didn’t look like much at first. He was too fat and his head was so big his mother feared it was misshapen or damaged.
He didn’t speak until he was well past 2, and even then with a strange echolalia (is when a child only speaks by repeating whatever words he hears) that reinforced his parents’ fears
He threw a small bowling ball at his little sister and chased his first violin teacher from the house by throwing a chair at her. There was in short, no sign, other than the patience to build card houses 14 stories high.
That little child would grow up to be ‘the new Copernicus,’ proclaiming a new theory of nature, in which matter and energy swapped faces, light beams bent, the stars danced and space and time were as flexible and elastic as bubblegum.
No clue to suggest that he would help send humanity lurching down the road to the atomic age, with all its promise and dread, with the stroke of his pen on a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.
Certainly no reason to suspect that his image would be on T-shirts, coffee mugs, posters and dolls….. turn out to be Albert Einstein!”
You see we don’t always believe because we understand sometimes we choose to believe knowing that he has a plan for you. So wherever you are, whoever you are now, God has a plan.
7. To Say “Sorry”.
I had a trouble also catching up with this word “I’m Sorry” I think I was about 2 years old when my father started teaching it to me after age five it was like on everything I do wrong the word “I’m sorry” will be the first.
You see growing up I have learned, it’s not a must for you to be at fault so you can say “I’m sorry” but sometimes you will need to say “I’m sorry” even when you’re not the one at fault.
It might work magic, and save a lot of trouble for you today and the day ahead.
8. To Say “ Thank you”.
I have found this very practical in our day-to-day life, even you need to be appreciated sometimes. I used to bigger piece of everything especial when mom was giving food to us. For I knew how to say thank you.
9. To Learn To forgive.
Un-forgiveness is bad, it’s like someone taking a poison and wishing someone else will die on a result of that poison. It has no result, it build more and cause more pain. To the person at fault and a person who was the fault done too.
This is for our own good; it’s good if we learn how we can forgive.
10. Nothing Is impossible
For the records, even the word “IMPOSSIBLE” says ” I’M POSSIBLE” so whatever comes your way just know you can overcome it.
I will appreciate you leaving a comment to let me know what you think. :)
