Ever had that aha moment when you hear something inspirational from someone? A little piece of motivation from the mouth or hand of someone you may or may not know. It maybe something which forces you to push on with something you where previously stuck with. How did it feel to be inspired by a complete stranger?
On the other hand, have you ever received a little unexpected thank you from someone because your words or actions pushed them to do something great? How did it feel? You probably didn’t make any financial or matierialistic gains but wow! Doesn’t it feel great?
At some point in our lives most of us are touched and inspired by a member of society. There’s been a few of these moments in my life when I have been pushed to act due to some words of inspiration. I feel like I owe a debt which I may never get the chance to repay. Well let me tell you this, inspiring someone else later on down the line can be a great little way to give something back for that aha moment in which you, yourself where inspired.
There are many good people in this world who are willing to do things just to be nice. They don’t want anything in return, not even a mention. They do it because it makes them feel good. Maybe they have been inspired earlier on in life and now they are giving back a little inspiration to help make someone else in being great.
So give and you shall receive, maybe not yourself but through your kids, or their kids. Let’s progress the human race to be a generation of people who give just to be nice.

Do things with kindness
It costs nothing at all to be a nice person in everyday life. Some people only act nice in order to impress others. IMHO that is phoney as heck and only acts to feed said persons ego or look good on someones Facebook timeline or youtube video. The geniune person will gladly help someone and then walk the other way without a thought about advertising the good deed they have just carried out.
If you carry out a good deed does it make you feel warm and fuzzy inside even if nobody else see’s what you did? Or will you only do that deed if you know others are watching?
How i like to be a nice person
A few weeks ago my husband and i were feeling quite sorry for him and could tell he was too proud to ask for help or make a fuss about his daily struggles. So my wife went over and offered our assistance with things like shopping and running every day errands which have become difficult for him. A week passed and other then saying hi in passing we heard nothing. Then last week our neighbour rang and asked if we could top up his gas and electric meters. So obviously my husband went and did it straight away. We then asked if there was anything he needed help with on a daily basis. “if you could just wheel my bin out once a week that would be a great help”. My husband said “sure, but pls let us know if you need anything at all”. We are willing to do anything we can to make his final days a little easier. He is largely alone except when his carer pops in a couple times a week. I cannot imagine what it is like for him knowing that very soon he will no longer be on this earth. It really breaks our hearts but it makes us feel better to know that whenever he needs assistance, he can just pick up the phone, and ask us to go round.
So why are we doing this? Do we get anything out of it? Does it help us in anyway? Yes of course we get something out of it, satisfaction, a feeling of worth and knowing that we are making the final days of a dying mans life a little easier. How would anyone in his position feel? I would hate to be in his shoes with no family around in my final days. When he is gone I will personally do my best to see he gets a good turnout at his send off.
So have we done this to prove we are nice people? Definitely not and this is the first I have spoken about this. Do I feel I am a nice person for doing this? Yes I get a great amount of self satisfaction and I sleep Damn well at night.
Today’s quote of the day is a powerful and worthy one. “Be stronger than your excuses”
It is so easy to make excuses when we don’t want to do something. We justify our reasons for not doing it by convincing ourselves that we don’t have time, don’t have the necessary things or we just simply can’t or won’t do it.
stop making excuse to put off the things that really need doing. You are strong enough to overcome your reasons for not wanting to do these things.
