Response: How You Affect Others Daily

11-01-06 @1:14 PM
Gracias Shelita ~ The below is a good reminder for all of us. We need to encourage each other, support each other and give good feedback to each other that is honest, for real and uplifting for our spirits.
So many people are rude, selfish and inconsiderate to each other because they fail to comprehend their real impact on others. Sometimes I myself, being imperfect, forget to consider the feelings of others and am 'too busy' to consider the situation or mentality of others. Thus, I need to be more considerate towards others.

Time can be a real tyrant and I never seem to have enough to do what I want to do on any given day or night.We need to take the treasure of our time and use our sacred time wisely in all our relations. We should bring light into our lives in these tmes when there is much despair and darkness.

Light creates light.
Genesis 1:4
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
I want to share this with othes though it may be a little corny for the appetite of some... I am one of the corn people!
~ Blessings, Peta

How You Affect Others Daily

As the pace and fullness of modern life serve to isolate us from one another, the contact we do share becomes vastly more significant. We unconsciously absorb each other's energy, adopting the temperament of those with whom we share close quarters, and find ourselves changed after the briefest encounters. Everything we do or say has the potential to affect not only the individuals we live, work, and play with but also those we've just met. Though we may never know the impact we have had or the scope of our influence, accepting and understanding that our attitudes and choices will affect others can help us remember to conduct ourselves with grace at all times. When we seek always to be friendly, helpful, and responsive, we effortlessly create an atmosphere around ourselves that is both uplifting and inspiring.

Most people rarely give thought to the effect they have had or will have on others. When we take a few moments to contemplate how our individual modes of being affect the people we spend time with each day, we come one step closer to seeing ourselves through the eyes of others. By asking ourselves whether those we encounter walk away feeling appreciated, respected, and liked, we can heighten our awareness of the effect we ultimately have. Something as simple as a smile given freely can temporarily brighten a person's entire world.

Our value-driven conduct may inspire others to consider whether their own lives are reflective of their values. A word of advice can help others see life in an entirely new fashion. And small gestures of kindness can even prove to those embittered by the world that goodness still exists. By simply being ourselves, we influence other's lives in both subtle and life-altering ways.

To ensure that the effect we have is positive, we must strive to stay true to ourselves while realizing that it is the demeanor we project and not the quality of our wondrous inner landscapes that people see.

Thus, as we interact with others, how we behave can be as important as who we are. If we project our passion for life, our warmth, and our tolerance in our facial features, voice, and choice of words, every person who enters our circle of influence will leave our presence feeling at peace with themselves and with us. You never know whose life you are affecting, big or small. Try to remember this as you go out into the world each day.
