My son got a little book that had inspiring quotes. The bottom of the page was for tearing off and giving away, and then the rest of the page stayed in the book for the reader. Over time the tear-offs were distributed around. I just came across one that I'd like to share with you now:
Don't worry too much about
making an impression.
Work more on making a difference.
I'm not sure who said it first, so I'm sorry I can't give an attribution.
The thing is, if you let yourself be inspired by making a difference in your world, the energy you invest will lift you up. Those people who are so in the limelight and are only concerned with the way others see them will not be as satisfied with life. Lasting value is always about who you are with yourself and others, not about your clothes, degrees, money, weight, kind of car you drive, or what ever else people falsely value.
What's the song you came into this world to sing? I hope you can find the courage to shine just a little bit brighter!
Well, the forum didn't get the attention that I thought it might and the truth is, I have some other projects that are taking priority. Still, there was a wonderful post about parenting teens that is right here in the comments of this post that will be here to nourish parents of teens. I have a "to do" list which includes more on parenting teens and resources and I'll post when that's online.
Ok, so many come to look around the website, read the posts etc. (I get the stats.) So please know that if you have the courage to post--whether it's with a question or with advice, your participation can benefit lots of people over time. I look forward to every voice!
I am not talking about the songs that make you cry or the ones that make you moody or sad. I am talking about the songs that lift your spirits. They can be gentle or fast, just sing. Do you need to know that science backs this up? (I'm told that the positive effects of music on the immune system can last for hours or even days!) Would you like to hear that there are those who believe that the Heavenly realms are made up of music. Does any of that matter to you right now?
Sing or hum, make some music with your voice. Move some, bang on the table. Repeat.
Don't take my word for it.
Do your own experiment. Chart the results if you want to.
At least give it a try.
Need ideas for a song to sing?
Try "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley
Please share the songs you love to sing in the comments!
(Did I ever mention that I love comments??)
You can do this!
Thanks to www.morguefile.com and chamomile for the happy, musical photo!
