Perhaps my greatest weakness during this hour at night is an uncomfortable pillow and a mind full of thoughts. Actually, I’ll allow myself the freedom and say this is true for many people.
I’m halfway through my college career; well, almost. I enjoy my two part-time jobs, my classes are interesting, and every day I’m reminded about the wonderful people around me.
I suppose there exists no purpose to this post; but let’s say somewhere within it, it has some authenticity.
Let’s just say I’m excited for what’s in store. And let’s just say I’m ready.
How about we stop saying, and we start doing. In fact can do it together.
Next time you see someone in need, provide them with assistance. Remove yourself from the equation and do it for no other motive than to make someone else’s life better.
Embrace the silence. Nowadays, we’re too caught up in what’s going to happen next, how we can get our fix with social media, and we’ve gotten too used to talking and not listening. Promise yourself to allow your heart to say what your mouth cannot.
And now it’s time for bed. So I’ll provide one more thought, even if all of this has been rather repetitive.
Recognize what makes others special. Next time you’re with someone, see if you can narrow down what makes them truly unique. Figure it out and then compliment them on it. Most of the time, people aren’t complimented on the small everyday things they do. Make them smile, and you’ll be smiling as well.
