I was so inspired by what she is doing during her “year of kindness” and by her steady, quiet, courageous, persistence in offering to others…on that particular day that she wrote about, she had been offering flowers to others and some people weren’t interesting in accepting…
I really was inspired by that entire post, but particularly by her last sentence….
“you have to have faith
that whatever you are offering to the world,
eventually someone will walk by
who accepts and appreciates it, completely and joyfully,
and there really is no better feeling. “
I took those words and put them onto a “page” (above), printed several copies and taped the copies to the side of my computer monitor and on the window above the kitchen sink.
I frequently read those words to help remind myself …
and maybe we might all remind ourselves…
not to concern ourselves about whether others
might recognize or accept what we might be offering in life…
but rather to rest in our positive motivation of giving or offering.
