Did you make any resolutions for the year 2014 yet? If not, be glad. Lead the way into a friendlier, kinder, marvelous planet. Not only for 2014, but for every day of the new year, resolve to follow the suggestions from the Mental Health Association:
1. Any ACT OF KINDNESS you extend will inspire the person receiving it to extend the act of kindness to others.
2 2. SMILE. Plenty!
3 3. If it fits the occasion, ask “Can I help you?”
4 4. HUGS work miracles. Give at least three hugs per day.
5 5.Do one anonymous kind deed today.
6 6. Before you speak, ask “Is it true? Is it kind?” If not, simply don’t say it.
7 7. Be agreeable, act courteously, do not interrupt.
8 8. Do something positive to improve your health.
9 9. Avoid negative people.
1 10. Treat the elderly as you wish others would treat you.
1 11. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you LOVE them.
The first and last word in kindness is the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
More than that, you may wish to do a bit of travel. Try to attend the 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning celebration at the Center for Spiritual Living, 12875 Fee Fee Rd. St Louis, MO 63146. You will find that full play will be given to your imagination. Visit the Center’s website CSLSTL.ORG, where you can download videos of the Sunday discussions.
See you in February when the subject will be about LAUGHTER, which scientists say is a serious business.
