Posts Tagged ‘gratitude’

I know people who are struggling, people who have cut back in every conceivable way to save money just to stay afloat.  I also know people who are living very comfortably in nice homes, with fancy vehicles, going out to eat regularily and have no worries when it comes to bills or their health.  The world definately has classes of people who are in the haves and the have nots.  There is also a large population of people who are somewhere in the middle.  The thing is…we all have things that we could share.  Blessings come in many packages.

Everyone of us has gifts, talents, finances, possessions, strengths, knowledge or time that we could share with others.  What I love to celebrate and learn about are those who share those blessings with others without thought or expectation of getting something back from that experience of sharing.

Our society is going through some amazingly challenging times…people are struggling.  We need to be aware of others around us who are in need…those who could use a little pick me up.  It could be a kind word, a nice deed, financial gift, or it could be a sharing of knowledge that could bring a positive change to another.   There is a spiritual attitude that I love, it says this: “Those to whom much is given, much is expected in return”.  I call that an attitude of gratitude; being thankful for all that you have been blessed with and a willingness to share it with others!   I challenge you to find some way to bless others in your daily life.   Consider this a compassionate call to action…what can you give to others with no strings attached?

         Randy Pausch is a gifted speaker/teacher. He made the Last Lecture, to teach his children his view on living. He inspires us all to choose to fulfill our childhood dreams…what are any of us waiting for?  He is dying physically; but, he is living fully in the here and now.  After listening to him…i really felt impressed to condense his message to me in three small words…  

 1).  Latitude….Be present where you are…in the here and now, make the most of your time. 

 2).  Attitude…Be aware of how you perceive things…be positive…work hard not to dwell on negativity

 3).  Gratitude…Be grateful for the loving people in your life-friends & family, for your physical and mental well being, for the gift of spirituality,  the ability & creativity to provide dreams for yourself; and, for the wisdom to know, not to waste any of it!  This is the Last Lecture, and the Only Lecture, we need to get Inspiration.
