Day 57

This lesson is from Friday.

While we were waiting for dinner to finish cooking. My Grandma and I were helping my mama organize her stuff. She just moved not too long ago. So we were helping her with some organization. I have been trying to help my mom organize her things for the past few years now. But I feel like she is slowly starting to get organized. In the process, I hope that she can also downsize her items. She does have a lot of things. I am happy to help to help her.

I also help my sister organize her things, as well. Everyone always comes to me when they need help cleaning and organizing things. I am comfortable with living with less things. I like things in my life to be organized.

Today, I will see the beauty in helping others. Whether it is me lending someone my time, or my money. I will find ways to always lend a helping hand. I know that if I needed help, I would appreciate anyone’s help. There are benefits to the people receiving help, and the person giving help. It is important to help others when you can.

Day 35

Hey, sorry about being absent for the past few days. On Thursday I was babysitting my niece, and then I spent Friday, and today reading. I hope everyone is doing well.

What I learned from Thursday was that it taught that it is important to help others in a time of need. Like me, I help out my sister by watching my niece while my sister and her boyfriend are at work. It also gives me to spend the day with my niece, and we have a lot of fun. We play outside, we watch her shows, and we have “tea” parties. I am more than happy to help out. I hope you are able to help someone out, whether it be a loved one, or a stranger. You may never know who is in need of help. There are many ways you can help each other out, it can with your time, or money. You can decide what you are able to give to others. Something I always say is that whatever we send out to the universe, it comes back to us multiplied.

Today, I will extend myself to ensure that I help at least one person a day. We may not know exactly what everyone is going through, but we have the ability to help others have a better tomorrow.

Daily Affirmations and Life Lessons Introduction

Hey, everyone! I woke up with this inspiration that I should write about daily affirmations and or life lessons that I have learned throughout my life. I figured that will help other people with whatever they may be going through.

Back when I first began my blog, that was one of my ideas of writing about things that I have learned that day, whether it be something I had learned from work, or just having time to myself. I am excited to do this again.

I first began my blog six years ago in May. All of my coworkers saw that I was always positive, and happy a lot. I had always had something positive to say, and I gave good advice whenever they needed it. I am very proud of myself for starting this blog. Back then I thought I was popular with getting one hundred views in a month, and now that is how many in a day. I had no idea the power my words and ideas I have on others. I am so proud of myself for all of the work that I have been into this blog.

It’s almost like if someone told me how popular my blog would have been when I first started, I don’t think I would have believed it.

Back then I blogged for a year straight, and then I unintentionally took four years off. I was just thinking about my blog just before my birthday (last year), although I had some trouble with remembering my passwords, so it took me a few days to get everything situated. I am so happy I did.

My goal is to be a low key famous blogger, who writes books about all sorts of ideas and genres.

I love being able to help others, and provide others with advice. So being able to write out daily affirmations, and talk about the things I have learned with others, I think that will be extremely helpful.

Feel free to add any insight in the comments if you would like to add more to the ideas. I would love to hear from you.

After such a difficult year, we need more positive vibes to motivate and cheer us on. I like to think that our words have the power to heal to others, and that we shouldn’t be saying anything bad to others. We have the power to make people feel better about themselves. Always remember that.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 23

December just flew on by!

Perhaps in your community, you can organize a community library box, and a food box. That way people can drop off books and exchange food and books. Whenever you finish a book, and you are done having it you can just place it in the community library box for someone to enjoy. People in our communities might be in need of food, so leaving out pasta, bread, cans of soup, some hot chocolate mix might go a long way in helping someone.

Here are some examples of each. Mind you it doesn’t have to be this fancy, it can be whatever you like. I think it’s a perfect way to get the community involved.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 20

This is from Sunday.

I have always thought that it’s the best time to spread love and kindness than around Christmas time. Not everyone is fortunate enough to spend time with their families.

When someone asks you for help, say yes. Offer your time, and services. Perhaps your sibling can use a night off from the kids. You can offer to babysit your nieces and nephews. You can help them paint the kitchen, or any other projects that someone might need help with.

Although I know some places in the world may be in lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help someone when the lockdown gets lifted.

Ripple Effects of the Pandemic

I haven’t really vocalized much about the whole coronavirus, and the ripple effects it has caused us. But here is a snippet of my thoughts about it. I will be mentioning mental health crises, so that may be a trigger to others, but it does provide a powerful message to others.

The pandemic has thrown quite a wrench into 2020. It hasn’t just effected our economy, but it has dramatically effected our mental health. Between the lockdown, and having people in quarantine, it definitely has made people feel lonely. A lot of retirement homes were no longer allowing visitors in, our Grandparents and parents must be so lonely. So if you have family in retirement homes, and you can’t visit them, call them instead.

Not only has it made people feel lonely, but depressed, and unworthy.

But I was thinking about this other serious situation at the start of the the lockdowns was that people were going to stay in their houses more, and not have many places to go. I feared that many people were going to suffer in silence and continue to get abused. It would be easier for the people whom abused others to “get away” with it, since there wasn’t much happening in the world. I feel for every victim out there who has been suffering. I send you my love and healing powers, so you can get better.

I was reminded about this issue again, when Dr. Phil did an episode about survivors of abuse. I wasn’t able to watch that episode, but I did watch a video of what Dr. Phil was thinking about during the interview.

Something that Dr. Phil said was, “law enforcers only know what they are reported.” And added, “If you see something wrong, report it.”

He feels concerned that with all of the schools that closed right now, that they are children who are suffering. He feels that way because schools have mandatory reporters such as teachers, coaches who are legally responsible and required to report any suspicion of neglect and abuse. He wishes that it was safe for children to return to school, so children can be safer.

He suggests that if you see anything wrong, you should report it, because you never know who you are going to help. It can be anything from a bruise, to malnutrition. Dr. Phil recommends that you call the police, or you can report this to your country sheriff. You can remain anonymous, and just inform them that you live across the street, or next door to someone who is abusing someone else. You then request a wellness check to this said family.

They would make an unannounced visit, and see for themselves what is taking place in that household. We have to work together, in order to help others. Your call can just save someone’s life, and be their saving grace.

Day 114 of 192

I just started going through my winter accessories. I know I have a lot of it that I no longer use anymore. I am more than happy to donate it to those who are in need.

My mama crocheted this for me, and it’s really pretty, but I have already decided to keep only two scarves for the winter. I’m going to ask mom, my cousin and my sister if they need any scarves for the winter, and if not, then I can donate this to someone in need.

Talking to a Stranger

Talking to strangers may not be the wisest choice but if you approach them with a conversation they can provide you with a lot of wisdom. Although you should be cautious when speaking to people you do not know.

My mama took me shopping today and I picked up two dresses from the racks and then walked to the changing room area. I showcased them to mama and as I did a woman nearby really admired my dress. She told me that the dress I tried on was beautiful.

She wanted to try this dress on but in a different size. I tried to remember where I found it since I went around all of those racks. Unfortunately we weren’t able to find it but I did help her select a dress.

As I was leaving to the checkout I saw her try on her dress and I told that it was a nice dress and that she should get it.

Today, I will talk to someone to gain knowledge and to help others out. But I will also remember to use caution when talking to them.

A Random Act of Kindness

I visited my sister at work today and afterwards I was walking towards my bus stop.

As soon as I got there, a woman approached me asking me if I had money or another bus ticket and I confessed that I didn’t; which is the truth.

All she had was a bus transfer that expired in twenty minutes and she has a brain injury and needed to go grocery shopping still. Since I only needed to catch one bus home I agreed to exchange my bus ticket for her bus transfer.

She was grateful that I did that. I am glad that I was able to help her. 🙂

“No random act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.”
