#10 Love Is The Greatest

Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

Mother Theresa

 

Personally i believe that love is the greatest virtue one can possess. Looking around the world today, everything that’s happening; I can’t help but wonder if everyone loved, what would happen!? There has been conferences, discussions, meetings all with the aim of uniting families, people, nations, settling conflicts but still it seems as though nothing is changing. We has hoped, we have talked but the one thing that is left to be applied is love.

There seems to be a general misconception that love is something that’s reserved for certain people or occasions but that’s not true at all. Everyone qualifies to be loved, to be cared for, to be respected, to be heard. Love does not discriminate. Love does not get tired of  loving. Love is manifested in the small things; to love someone you don’t need to shower them with gifts and money or lots of material possessions, sometimes all that’s needed is a smile, a hug, a shoulder to cry on, lending a listen ear, a helping hand, an advice, helping an elderly person cross the road, tying the shoes of a child, calling someone just to say hello and ask how they’re doing, trying to understanding what the other person is feeling or going through and not immediately judge them and so many other ways to show love. They’re many people who can do the big things but very few will do the small things.

You don’t have to love the whole word, start by showing love your neighbor; that person standing next to you irrespective of their color, position, opinion, vices; just choose to show someone love today just because they’re a human being just like you.

I believe that what the world needs is not more weapons, conferences, discussions, inventions, cars or houses but for every person to be their neighbor’s keeper. To show love and acceptance.

Imagine how great our countries, nations, families, schools, communities would be if everyone loved each other and sought not only their own benefit but also the benefit of their neighbor. Love is the Highway to ‘ A Higher Life’

#8 Dare To Be Yourself

 

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

 

Mother Theresa

#5 Don’t Focus Only On Your Rearview Mirror

Never be a prisoner of your past, it was just a lesson not a life sentence.”

_Unknown


I don’t know who wrote this one but when I saw it, it spoke to me. It’s true that one’s past has a huge influence on the present and one may say that it shapes the person you later become; but let it not be a prison. Let us not hold on to the past hurts and tragedies. It’s true it was painful, dark and traumatising but we gotta look beyond that, see it as a life lesson and move forward to the future we desire not the one we fear.

Whatever’s happened to you, don’t let it hold you down, use it as a catapult to move forward. Don’t sit in the driving seat of your life and drive looking in the rearview mirror. I have had many times in my life when I thought that it was the end, that nothing good was ever going to happen; sometimes we find ourselves in that place between a rock and a hard place and you begin to think: “this is it, this is the end” isn’t it? Here’s the good news:
“No matter the length of the night, the morning will come and the sun will rise again.”

Looking at the past as a lesson not a life sentence is how you turn your scars into stars.
