An Idea to Ponder
“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Dot over at Deeper Issues sent me a desk calendar that is full of pithy quotes and sayings. There is a message for every week day and one for the weekend. I so enjoy these little things that just share so much and make the world a better place.
I am savoring this most recent one and I think I might commit it to memory. I think it might be a good thing to have in my arsenal of things to share when someone is being critical of another, especially when I think the person might be being creative and new rather than just following.
I watched my Mother put on gloves and pick up public bathrooms when we were traveling, and clean up broken glass on a sidewalk, because she walked her talk of “always leave a place better than you found it.”
I tend to hone in on the meaning of an endeavor to that person. I have to say I wish some folks encountered on my road, would take this statement to heart!
Did this idea make you think of a story or incident that you would like to share? How is your path unique and all your own?
As you start 2010 are you on your own path to happiness and fulfillment or just following another path which works for you?
Looking forward to you good comments and sharing.
