“Get away from the crowd where you can. Keep yourself to yourself, if only for a few hours daily.” – Arthur Brisbane

Positive Quote: “Get away from the crowd where you can. Keep yourself to yourself, if only for a few hours daily.” – Arthur Brisbane

I am an introvert by nature. I need time alone to replenish my spirit to recharge my batteries. The time I take to do this, I believe, helps me keep myself centered. I believe that whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, having the time to reflect is extremely helpful.

“No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may soon become the step that will lead us to better things.” – Channing Pollock

Positive Quote: “No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may soon become the step that will lead us to better things.” – Channing Pollock

There are times in life that we want to rush through things, take shortcuts, take easier paths…yet those are the times we should take special care and not shortcut quality. Shortcutting can lead to more and before you know it it snowballs.

There are times my daughter is talking to me and I have to say, I can’t hear you, stop, give me a minute to finish this (whatever this may be) and then I can listen. If I half listened or heard the voice and not the words, in the long run it would not lead to more talks and I may miss something important. Just the other night my daughter said to my husband and I that she wanted to talk to us about something and wanted to wait until we could listen. We stopped what we were doing and my daughter told me that my face did not look like I was paying attention. I can laugh now, but my daughter has seen me listen to her more times than I can count, she can tell if and when I am distracted. So I had to refocus and commit to just listening.

Whatever the task may be, doing it as well as we can and giving it the attention it needs is what will lead to better things.

“Complacency is the enemy of progress.” – Dave Stutman

Positive Quote: “Complacency is the enemy of progress.” – Dave Stutman

Complacency, it can mean different things to different people. To me, it means not moving forward, not changing, not modifying what currently is….and I would agree, it can be the enemy of progress. Putting oneself out there is what helps move progress along.

This quote helps me ask myself…. Am I complacent, Am I progressing?

“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.” – Albert Schweitzer

Positive Quote: “Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.” – Albert Schweitzer

Maintaining a positive attitude is not always easy. Things happen, emotions are affected, frustration can set in, or many other things. It is at times like this I think everyone should have someone in their life (or many someone’s) that that can vent to, to talk to, to go to for support. These are the people who help to rekindle the light that is being referenced in the above quote. For these people in my own life I am grateful and most appreciative of.

Perhaps you should ask yourself, are you helping others rekindle their light or helping them blow it out?

I liken this quote to some of the games my son likes to play, be it legos or bakugan or even MineCraft ….in each of them the common theme is change and evolution. What will be built, what will be next, how will it be better….. I hope I don’t ever stop changing and growing and being a better me.

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” – Mother Theresa

Positive Quote: “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” – Mother Theresa

I know that I will not be the next Mother Theresa, however, I do know that I can choose to be kind over being unkind. I can say please and thank you. I can smile when I am talking to others. I can deliver difficult messages with empathy.

Doing this can be emotionally and mentally draining. So to be kind to myself, I can take time to recharge my batteries, time to center myself with the world. Perhaps it is because I am more of an introvert, I need the time to recharge.

My hope is that my echoes are seen with kindness versus the opposite.
