Something I came across- I think it’s true.
Here’s to kindness, understanding and love.
It may be very difficult at times – but keep your head up and give nourishment to your spirit.
Had to pass this one along via my Facebook page.
This wisdom from Maya Angelou is a great life lesson -personally or professionally, in our leaders, pretty much around the board. No matter how many times, second, third chances you may give, it often comes back to that principle.
I learned this again this week in a business related situation, no more chances now..and then the other wisdom came to mind ‘You teach people how to treat you” – both go hand in hand. Think about it – walk away, do better now that you absolutely know the situation isn’t right and you may not getting what you want out of something or the respect you deserve. Heed the lesson and keep it pushing forward.
I just wanted to thank those of you who follow my posts. Wishing everyone a blessed holiday season.. it’s a very sad time of year for so many.
The victims of the Oakland fire – young people just going out for a good time, artists just trying to make a living and live their dream. You never know in life. Those families are still on my mind and in my prayers – not to mention so many losses due to tragedy, from Aleppo to Chicago to Oakland and beyond. This year should remind us all how unpredictable life can be. As an artist and someone who has sought out less commercial clubs to dance – just as my daughter does and many of you may very well relate. She knew 3 of those of lost their lives and nearly went to that club that night..and so it especially hit close to home.
My message is always to cherish each day – no matter how stressful, imperfect or trying to the nerves things can be..keep moving forward and let those you love know it – show it. Give to someone in need..by kindness as a starting point.
Let the holidays and the forthcoming new year simply serve as not so gentle reminders of what means the most in life – the ultimate gift. Moments – not things (unless it’s the little ones..and I do miss the whimsy of those times through a child’s eyes)..though even then..it’s the moments that will live on long after the gifts have been received and wrapping paper tossed away. Keep people in your life that bring joy.
Never let anyone dim your sparkle or shine. Leave some of it everywhere you go! -Jody Watley
