Radiating warmth, comes from a mind and heart full of optimism for the well being of all you come in contact with.
The fact that hardships abound and there is no discrimination. We cannot know the pain in another’s heart.
We cannot solve others problems, yet, we can lift another’s spirits. It may be possible to help them see other choices available. The power of making choices based on the best of options and possible outcomes can improve our life.
Fear can blind us to the options we have. We can feel so limited because of our situation. Threatening situations can keep us bound, like we come up with all the reasons to avoid a change. Imaging our situation will become worse, and yes it could. Yet, a change is just that, a change. It could change for the better as well.
Supporting another’s progress whether it is weight loss, or a cleaner home, or a more positive attitude is supporting a better society. We must invest in each other joyfully and optimistically.
A friend of mine is so perky, generous, optimistic. She is refreshing. I have been gravitating toward positive people. It is great having her in my life.
At times we have people in our life that are so emotionally taxing. Emotional heavyweights are just that, how can we help them to have a different view of life? Sometimes we cannot help another with their viewpoints or problems. We may be the heavyweight ourself with the serious problems. Our circumstances may seem daunting. There may not always be clear answers. We can always reconsider advice previously offered. I have not always been ready to change, then privately, I think and pray about it. There are times I try a new way and am benefitted. It is easy to understand why change is so difficult. I am a reforming near-hoarder. Sometime, I will tell you about it. People have tried to advise, counsel, and emotionally force a change. Only the last couple years have I figured it out with the help of some good programs. Change can feel like a very drawn out process. I want to be better now! Ok, I am better now because I am making the adjustments. Impatient with myself because I know how I want to be, and change is a practice, not a wish.
We might feel bad that we cannot help another, we after all have our own responsibilities and problems. The Bible says we will carry our own load. If we are on the phone every day hearing about another’s troubles, and we are so emotionally involved we get stressed how can we adequately attend to our own. Imagine if we have a mate and children and we use the time we should be attentive to them to be stressed about another’s problems while neglecting those we should be actively loving.
Friendships are essential to emotional health. A friend is someone that we can enjoy activities with, talk with, enjoying a positive interchange. I have some friends whom are optimistic, they have not given up on me. Their faith in me is essential and supports my growth. I have a belief that a hand-up policy is the best.
Some enter our life suddenly like a breeze. Refreshing their ways are and we blessed. In many ways we feel capable again. We look forward realizing change and joy are possible. They are an answer to a prayer. Just as suddenly they have moved on, but we were blessed.
Thank you to all whom have had faith in me, loving me despite. Thank you!
