Do you have special people in your life that you know you would miss if they were not around anymore? I am fortunate to have some very special people in my life, past and present who have influenced or currently influence my thoughts and actions. I feel I am lucky to have some great people in my life – I am grateful for their love, guidance and influence in my life even though at times I may not have realised it at the time.
I am a big believer in karma and realise that in my youth, I have been ungrateful and selfish but am thankful for those who did stick by me and continued to guide and help me to become a better person. I am still on the journey and glad to be working towards becoming a better me. I’ve realised that projecting positive energy guarantees positive energy coming back – at other times, when the energy is not positive then I feel that it may be trying to teach me something I haven’t yet mastered.
I hope that you have the pleasure of special people in your life to love and guide you – even if you don’t realise it at the time. When you do, please remember to thank these special people for their love and guidance – in a way that you feel best suits the situation or person. If they are no longer in your life, you can still send out a message of thanks for that person who has influenced you in the form of a prayer or mantra – however you feel best suits.
I hope these special people help you live your life the best way you can, reminding you to:
- love yourself and others – that it’s the little things/ moments which are important,
- laugh – at yourself, finding humour when things become difficult, applying humour -reminding you not to take yourself so seriously at times and,
- practice empathy.
I feel that people who enable you to Laugh, Love, Live! are often the best kind of people and sometimes have been there all along without you even realising. I hope to express gratitude to the special people in my life through my words and actions towards them continually. These people are usually supportive, encouraging, positive people who provide you with constructive criticism. I find that you are able to reflect on their feedback to see what/ how you can apply it to blossom authentically into your own person.
Think about the special people in your life – who are they? Have you realised who they are? Do they know they are special to you? How can you thank them and let them know they are cherished? Remember, the little things matter the most – a kind word, a smile, a note, an email, a card or just say ‘thanks’. Whenever you remember and however you express your gratitude, may be the best thing that person may have heard/ received all day! Peace and blessings!
