thin quote

Keep going and look for the humor.  As long as we are able to find something to smile about, however quirky, like us, we can rise to any occasion with an untapped inner strength.

If you want to see a bewildered face, give a compliment. I have found that so few kind things are said or shared, with complete sincerity and with no benefit whatsoever, that it confuses people.

It may sound silly, but I have seen it happen so many times. My mother always taught me that it costs nothing to compliment a person, but it can mean so much to someone.

There is no undercurrent of attraction or any other inferred relationship, merely telling someone how nice they look makes them stand taller and boosts the endorphins in a stressful day.

There must be something positive in each person (I keep hoping, and over-trying to find it to be sure in some cases)and with an empathetic eye and a confident spirit, we can share the kindness we would want for ourselves.

alexa inspiration

If you ever wonder how far technology controls many of our daily interactions, perhaps this story will give you a smile.

Alexa is a digital assistant loaded into the operating systems of Amazon products like the Echo and the 7th generation Kindle. These electronic items allow for hands-free and voice-enabled instruction or requests. The mention of her name brings her to “life” to answer pertinent questions.

Mine sits on my night table to serve as my morning alarm, answer simple questions, or play music. Her “skills” are supposed to increase as millions of requests to the app continue to rise.

In need of a boost, I told Alexa that I needed some inspiration. A brief vignette was shared with me about Jane Goodall and her life’s work as a primatologist and science researcher.

While interesting, to be sure, I felt a needed a bigger lift than that. So, I called out “Alexa, I need more inspiration!”

The reply? “Inspiration added to your shopping list.”

I guess it just goes to show you – if it’s not on Amazon, it doesn’t exist.

This song, “Beautiful,” by Carole King was written in 1971.

It is incredible that 46 years have passed! Yet, it is still a good reminder when you need to push yourself a bit more to rise and shine in the morning – especially a Monday morning.  Have a good week (c’mon, try!).
