“Sunny” – What would a Health Blog be without some uplifting, inspirational anecdotes and mantras?
“The moment I met you I saw that you were quite unconscious of what you really are, of what you might become. There was so much in you that charmed me that I felt I must tell you something about yourself. I thought how tragic it would be if you were wasted”
At first read this may sound like a depressing quote, but I urge you to read it again. This time hold in your mind’s eye someone that you love – someone that you loved and lost.
Sometimes Life can feel like a wild ride of staged monotony, obligatory meet-ups, chance encounters and general anticlimactic chaos.
This Sunny Sunday, as we do each month, I am going to challenge you to go outside of this default reaction.
Read the quote a third time. Read it with the intention of promising to try to make your encounters – be they chance, monotonous, obligatory, or chaotic – as purposeful as possible. Look for the good in others. Tell people what they mean to you. Recognize a positive attribute, talent, or skill.
At the very least, smile. Smile at other people you happen to see, for it would be a waste of the goodness in you if you did not.
