This blog is about me, what I think, and how I see things. I make no apologies and have no regrets for anything I say here because it is actually pretty uplifting stuff. More times than not, I talk about love and peace and harmony and how important are those things to the evolution of our species. I will always prefer to remind people about the innate goodness within themselves because that is always what is overlooked or forgotten yet what is most extraordinary and powerful.
Self-esteem can be terribly inspiring, and when one is inspired to believe that one is capable of greatness above and beyond that which was initially believed, then one is likely to feel pretty good about one’s self and more capable of doing the same for others. That has been this one’s experience every time and it never stops feeling good to help another person feel good about themselves.
Try it sometime. When you are feeling truly confident about it, identify and communicate to someone how helpful they have been. Discover and tell an overworked professional that they may be undervalued but are secretly supported by you and many others. Realize and say to the colleague who least expects it that their work is often overlooked but nonetheless appreciated by many and that it’s important for them to know that.
Be sincere. Be honest. Just about everyone has felt that they have worked harder than was recognized at one time or another, so let that someone know that you understand that and that now is a good time to remember that. That doesn’t mean you go bouncing around like some rose colored contact-wearing college student. You must first realize that your appreciation is genuine; so you must empathize with intelligent deliberation. Only then will your words carry the water that quenches the thirsty soul.
Don’t assume that everyone is strong enough to carry the weight of the world all the time. Speak and be heard. Let your message be the voice that lifts the hearts and minds of others. Many carry the weight of the world so return to them their strength to do that. Remind people of their credible worth, dignity and value. You may start something that reverberates back to you. You may also experience your overlooked and underappreciated humanity.
