may you never forget what is worth remembering

These are the ones that made my list. What are some of the things you have learned along the way?

Life is too short to wallow in someone else’s muck.

As long as you can still find something to laugh about, you are doing alright.

No matter how hard you try to rationalize someone else’s bad behavior, you won’t feel better about how badly they treated you.

Even a psychiatrist cannot change a light bulb if it is not willing to change…..and there are some pretty dim bulbs out there.

Choosing to remove yourself, and hold your head up high, is always more empowering than letting other people exclude you.

There is no such thing as too much kindness or compassion.

If someone asks “How Are You?” as they keep walking past you, they don’t really care about the answer.  Eye contact, or lack thereof, is an indication.

You will never find out who you really are if you are only willing to look as far as your mirror.

You don’t have to give birth to change the life of a child.

Choose to smile at someone and go the extra mile. It is not for them anymore, it is just for you and your dignity.

No matter how bad, or insecure, you may feel about yourself, ultimately, you will have enough self-esteem to keep someone else from putting you down. Trust me, it really is there.

It is OK to acknowledge the fear and the anxiety in daily situations and keep going.

If you have forged a new path, make it easy for someone to follow.

Your parents are not 100% wrong all the time. Leave some room in your life for error.

You are never responsible for someone else’s bad behavior. They are. Nothing you could ever do will make someone else behave badly unless he or she chooses to act that way.

Quitting is hard, and can affect your confidence, but there is strength in knowing when enough is enough.

There will always be people who have more than you. But, there will always be people who have less.

Say “please” and “thank you” to anyone who does something for you or helps you. Even if you pay them, they still deserve the respect and courtesy of good manners.

There is only one true Judge and it does not have to be me.

Charity is not just giving money. It is a state of mind and an act of being.

It is OK to cry and to grieve your losses no matter how little, or how much, time has passed. It comes in waves, and when the swells rise, the tears will fall.

Remember that it is normal and human to cry and grieve and that those who think it is “negative,” or tell you not to cry, or avoid you, have their own mental and emotional issues to sort out. Being human and empathetic is the way we were created to behave in these circumstances.

You can empathize with people if you have experienced difficult and life-searing changes and are honest about them. People can see phony from a mile away.

In the end, it does not matter how much you have or how much you spent. It matters if you were a mensch (human being).

As I ponder my personal growth and lifelong learning, I want to apply myself to studies that will be helpful to working into the future.  The workplace is changing very rapidly and there is a great divide brewing.

So, please – your ideas are welcome and important.

quote_involve me_lifelong learning_ben franklin

What studies or courses do you think would help to remain current in today’s job market?  I’d like to hear your opinion.  Your experience in the workforce is valuable.  What trends have you seen?  If you had to hire someone, what skills would stand out to you?  When you think about learning something new, what areas interest you?  What lessons and skills do you think are most valuable?

Sometimes, we get caught up in our small and intersecting universes and it is hard to see the breadth and width of possibility.   Vibrant and fresh thinking is encouraged.  Let me hear from you!

Some of the best time I have spent has been between two words.  While one idea exists, another can enter and create a new string of thoughts.  For me, reading is a joy, for others, they prefer a more auditory experience.

Just speaking with another person can spark a brand new idea to pursue.

In whatever way you can learn, your willingness to participate in the process, means you can always find something novel wherever you are ~ right now.

Have a wonderful week!
