The subtitle could be KINDNESS.
Everywhere I go I’m kinder to people. My friend who joined my company with little or no prodding told me she’s going in a different direction, oh well, I say. I will not be deterred. I will still help her. I am not hurt. It doesn’t matter. For I shall have bumps in the road and will not be deterred. I shall persist.
Everywhere people are kinder to me. Maybe they are kind all the time and I am just noticing more. It’s a nice thing, even smiles here and there. Maybe kindness in contagious and spreads all by itself.
Some of my discipline seems to be fading, but I want it. I want the routines. I’ve had interruptions of travel and have caught a seasonal cold I can’t seem to kick. I am not quite myself. Should I allow that to matter? It is only a slight setback, I will persist. I know what I need, and what I need to do. I will do it. For I am uniquely me, and I will do things my way. I’m following the compass, not the clock. I love the routines, I love the new habits, I love the new me. I shall persist!
I’ve begun some new routines for business and I.LOVE.THAT. It makes me smile.
In our sun room, this orchid stopped blooming last year sometime, and I thought it was withering away to its final demise, but something happened! I fed it something it apparently likes, and it has rewarded me with its beautiful bloom.
May I share it with you?
