inspiration : thursday thoughtfuls

Hi ya'll! Today I woke up and it's Thursday and guess what, it feels like Thursday. Maybe I finally broke out of that space time continuum. Maybe I won't tell you that all day Tuesday I thought it was Wednesday. Maybe I'm destined to live a life one day off. Maybe I should stop with all these weird, random thoughts and get to the good ol' thoughtfuls before you think I'm completely crazy. Maybe. 



In life there are those people that are so happy, so positive, they are like a ray of light, beaming into your soul. They feel you with happiness when you're around them so much that you want to be around them all the time. I know some people who are like this and one person in particular, Amanda (yes, I'm calling her out haha), is that kind of person. I knew from the moment I met Amanda and started getting to know her, that I wanted to be around her as much as possible and I wanted to be her best friend. She's just that kind of a person. And better yet, she makes me want to be that kind of a person. I strive to live a life worthy of being called a ray of light. 

This is true. Everyone... everyone is fighting a hard battle on their own. You may never know it, but they are. Kindness can go a long way. Plus, part of being a ray of light is being kind. Even when you don't want to be, be kind. 

Another part of being a ray of light is to love with such greatness and depth and you pour yourself into every small thing. 

I absolutely love this verse. There's also a song that we sang with the youth group based on this song and I adore it. In fact, I've been singing it lately and I think another part of being a ray of light is singing. Maybe not going around like a musical, but having that song in your heart that reaches out to others and lifts them up as well. I hope that we can sing this song with our new congregation soon and that if they don't know it, we can teach it to them. 

These are wonderful goals to have. I'm definitely going to take them to heart. 

I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and that someone around you is a ray of light, beaming into your soul. And if not, that means you're the ray of light and you'd better get to beaming. ;)

  1. These are all great!! I also love this one by Mother Theresa:
    "Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."

  5. Applying for home mortgages was not so simple,
    because of Chennai based property advisory firm SA Metroplots Pvt Ltd pay day uk i usually do not yet have sufficient proof
    that they may be doing anything but protecting their capital.
