Being the Best Me
I try to be the best me, every day. I don’t always succeed. I haven’t always succeeded in the past. I always try. I don’t get it right all the time and probably get it wrong more often than I even know. I always try.
It’s the little things you do that add up to big things.
Just a few of the simple ways I try to be the best me.
I try to promote and cheer on others who are trying to be their best. When I go out to eat, I buy other’s lunches/dinners (anonymously of course). When I get change at a store, I leave the change outside (somewhere near the door) so others who could use it more will find it. I smile at people that I encounter in my daily life. Driving in my car, I try to remember that everyone on the road is trying to get somewhere, too. I don’t get impatient when others are trying to get there first or faster. I will hold the door for anyone coming in behind me. When I read a book that I love and think that others might enjoy it too, I buy extra copies to give away. I say thank you, when someone does something kind for me.
Little things, I know. But again, little things add up to the big things.
Appreciate, smile, say thank you, give others a pass, you never know what is happening in their life.
There will always be people in the world that seem to have it better than you. There will always be people in the world that seem to have it worse than you, too. Believe me, this is the same for everyone, not just you or me. Given the opportunity to walk in anyone else’s shoes, you will quickly find that your own shoes fit you best.
Be grateful for who you are, what you are, where you are in life and the gifts you can share with others.
I’ve said it before, giving to others is the best gift we can give to ourselves. KJ @ KJ-isms
