Pearl of the Day

Treat everyone at though today is their last day on Earth...and you will never have any regrets.

This is something I live by every day of my life. I have been very lucky, to mostly encounter really lovely people. I could put it down to luck but I truly believe it's because I always treat everyone I meet, with the highest respect...I am open with them and honest but always in a loving way.
When I hear people tell me about nasty people they encountered during their day, whether sales assistants or customers etc., I always wonder if they took the time to do or say something kind to them, to turn them around.
Don't get me wrong, I encounter, not so nice, sales assistants too but what I do, is try to understand what kind of day the may have had and what type of customers they may have served before me. Quite often they themselves have had dealings with nasty customers and have been rattled by them.
When I am served by such a sales assistant, I ask them how they are (even if they don't ask me) and try to take an interest in them...I believe, if we all do this, it would make this world a much happier place to live in...and besides...wouldn't you enjoy your day more, knowing you've helped elevate someone's mood? I know I do...I feel great when I see that I have lifted someone up.
Having worked in customer service jobs, I cannot remember, ever having a customer, not matter how nasty they were, that I didn't win over with some love and attention.
When you go out next, set the intention to smile and be kind to everyone you meet and watch what happens. If someone isn't kind back, be extra kind to them, you will win them over. Just remember, all people want, is what we all be loved and acknowledged.

Pearl of the Day

"When you can't change the things out of your control...change the ones you can, in order to bring you greater happiness."

If life has become a bit too predictable and routine and for one reason or another, you can't change circumstances that seem out of your control...change the ones you can, in order to bring yourself greater happiness.
Look around you, what things can you change? Start by being spontaneous, do something that you would not normally do. When driving to work or picking up your children etc., change routes, take a different road, mix things up a little, it makes life more interesting.
Learn something new...take up a anything creative. Doing creative things, makes the Soul Soar!

I don't have a routine and I rarely make plans...and even when I do, it's only if it involves someone else i.e. a friend wants to meet for a coffee Monday next week etc....even then, I always leave off with, "that should be ok but I'll confirm it with you a day or so before"

I always try to mix things up...I let the powers that be, dictate my day for me and they never fail to surprise me.

Do what you can to be happy because when you're happy, you give those around you permission to be happy too!

"Some people come into our lives, only for a short time...but affect us so profoundly, that they leave their imprint on our hearts forever." 
From the book 'Pearls of Wisdom from the oyster called Life
I'm sure you've all met one or more people that have touched your lives, in a positive way. These people, come into our lives, some for a very short time, others for a bit longer and some for a lifetime but they all have a profound affect on us and leave their imprint on our hearts for ever.

I have met many such people, throughout my life, some of which have now become dear friends...they always seem to come at the right time, when needed to shine their light and help us through our darkness.
It's amazing how, you can meet someone in a shop or in passing and they may give you a heart-warming smile and it instantly, makes your day and lifts your mood.

Be kind to everyone you meet, for you don't know what kind of challenges they're trying to conquer and your kindness/smile, might be just what they need to give them a boost and help them to keep going.

With Love Light and Gratitude
