Choose You This Day…

Choose You This Day…
is to appoint your day for something good. Every day, use your abilities and opportunities, to choose your day, or to choose how you react in a given situation. There are many who need you to make a great choice. With one stroke of a pen, a tap of a key, or a word from your mouth, you add cheer, comfort, or not, to another’s day.

This life is not all about us.  It’s about giving and helping each other.  How many people do you know who have succeeded on their own?

There’s always someone behind the scenes in any success story,  or successful relationship, lifting them up, giving them advice, or helping them to change directions.   Ultimately that direction is yours to choose, but it comes at the cost of others’ efforts of meshing with you to make an enjoyable contribution for you both.   It takes two to converse, and it takes you being a friend to make a friend.

This quote was a contributing factor to this post today.

“My friends, ‘No man is an island.’  Whatever you are facing, God has not abandoned you, and neither should you abandon each other.”

-Billy Green, “Kiss and Tell Your Story”

Then, this morning I read a blog post where the author was talking about how to deal with criticism in your blog post.  He did well on his reply.  Sometimes, a comment comes, and takes you off guard, but you have to learn not to react and be who you are in every situation.  (Tough to do at times.)

If you’re reading this, more than likely, you’re a writer.  So, for your plan of action today set some time aside to…write a note, make a post, send a card, sing a song, tell a joke, or draw a picture, for someone who needs some cheer in their lives.  When the tide is strong and the undertow is pulling you down, put a smile on your face and help another.  It is true what they say:

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

-Wendy Mass, The Candymakers

  1. Hi BG,
    This was such a great post. There are so many people out there who do not have great support systems like you or I do when needed and it’s sad.

    A friend of mine is reaching out to grieving parents in her attempt to heal herself and she has touched so many lives already in her short time on FB Live videos.

    Of course, there are the “haters” that say she’s just wanting attention but she’s learning to get past that. It really hurt her in the beginning.

    Thanks for sharing this.
