When the owner of today’s featured message cracked open her fortune cookie she reflected inward. The words described how she hoped to be perceived by those around her. And so she decided to pocket this prophecy as a daily reminder to be compassionate and give without expecting reciprocation.
Today it is very easy to get caught up in the world of “I” rather than the world of “we.” It takes real effort to look outside ourselves and make meaningful contributions to our community. This can be an especially difficult task since working toward the greater good is often a thankless endeavor. Mother Teresa states it simply, “…give the world your best and it may not be good enough; give your best anyway…” And I agree. Though we may not be recognized for our contributions, knowing we put forth our best effort instills a pride that is priceless.
Thank you for sharing your daily motivator. And thank you for the reminder to take a step back, put our best selves out there, and work to make a positive impression on the world around us. For those following along, thank you for stopping by. Do you have a pocket prophecy that has helped you strive to be your best self? Email me a picture and snippet of why you have kept it around. I would love to hear your story and feature it here. Until next time, be well.
