Quote of the Week #27

whatever-you-think

Every day I see more and more wisdom in this quote.

I have a tendency to get caught up thinking about everything that is lacking in my life. Things like positive energy, love, and presence. But I rarely stop and consider what I’m offering to the world. Am I a source of presence and positivity? Do I show love and compassion to the people around me? More often than not the answer is no. So how can I expect any of these things to come to me?

Instead of focusing on what I don’t have, I want to start focusing on what I can offer the world. Even if it’s small things at first – like smiles or silly jokes – I want to be someone who gives value instead of taking it.

  1. This is an incredibly powerful and wise quote. I know what you mean, I too get caught up in those things and I often think the people around me aren’t present with me and aren’t listening… I will reverse my thoughts and move into offering. I can see many instances where I am not present and when I’m not truly listening. Thank you xooxox Sharon
