There’s going to be times where we win some and lose some…but, don’t you think the most important thing to remember is, that whatever the case may be, someone will be feeling happiness?
This should bring on a feeling of peace. And, calmness. And, grace.
We may feel disappointed because it wasn’t us that excelled or wasn’t publicly acknowledged for a job well done. But, that’s o.k.
How we react when we feel disappointed is what counts. What I believe is best? Acceptance and unconditional love…Smile to those that come out victorious…while our light may be temporarily dim, someone else’s isn’t…and, this, alone, should bring us joy.
Remember the saying, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all?” Well, I believe this holds so much weight. This doesn’t mean we have to be a door mat and agree with everything, but, our words and how they are expressed is hUgE!
As we communicate with grace, our positivity, love and encouragement will spread like wildfire…exactly what we want…
Do you ever feel more like an introvert when walking amongst strangers? It’s only natural, I suppose. I used to. I suppose I still do, sometimes. But, why?…if this isn’t how we normally are? I think, if we approach everyone as our equal (with love, and, as our brothers and sisters and, without judgment), God will “grant” us opportunities to connect with people as we pass people on the sidewalk or through the mall, in our cars, wherever and whenever, through a smile or wave…this is when little sparkles of light are created!
And, whom doesn’t like glitter? Some “bling, bling” in their life?!
Let’s all try and feel connected and loved with as many people as possible while we live our ONE life, okay?!
🙂 Love you, bunches,
‘Colossians 4:2 – 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.’
