Steps to Good-Hearted Living

Mondays are for Compliments

Learn to overcome the tendency to criticize and be judgmental, which robs us of laughter.  Look for the good in others, tell them about it, and you might just end up laughing together.  Thought for Mondays:  “A kind word often goes unspoken, but never goes unheard.”

Tuesdays are for Flexibility

There is no laughter in being stubborn.  Learning to be open to new ideas can be liberating and can be a lot more fun than being in a rut.  An open mind lets the laughter in.  Thoughts for Tuesdays:  “The tree that bends in the wind does not break.” “Minds are like parachutes.  They only function when they are open.”

Wednesdays are for Gratitude

One way to feel miserable is to think that you need something more to make you happy.  Remembering to be appreciative brings serenity and allows laughter to come forth.  Thought for Wednesdays:  “So much has been given to me.  I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.”(Helen Keller)

Thursdays are for Kindness

Simple kindness may be the key to allowing human beings to live together in peace.  Thought for Thursdays:  “A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half-empty; an optimist sees the same glass of water as being half-full.  But, a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty.”(G. Donald Gale)

Fridays are for Forgiveness

Releasing anger improves health and leaves room in the heart for laughter.  Thought for     Fridays:  “I never hold a grudge because while I am being angry, the other guy is out dancing!”

(Buddy Hackett)

Weekends are for Chocolate & Things That Bring Sweetness

Remember to take time for leisure, pleasure and relaxation.  Thoughts for weekends:  “If you are having dark thoughts on weekends, make sure that it’s because of chocolate.”  “A bad day fishing beats a good day working.”
