#QOTD #12

I woke up this morning to sad news. An elder in our community lost his battle to cancer. In the midst of me feeling overwhelmed, this quote came to mind. 

One of my favs actually! 

The Dalai Lama

…once said:

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.

… what a powerful message. One that is easily forgettable! I too am sometimes forget the significance behind this quote. 

Isn’t this our sole purpose? To help each other and not hurt each other? 

Irrespective of which religion you follow, stories of offering a helping hand appear in every scripture. 

Help to be helped, empower to be empowered. It’s simple.

Let us strive to be like this; to uplift each other; be it at home, in the workplace or even a random stranger you come accross. 

Offer your seat to an elder, help somebody with their parcels. Assist a fellow employee with a query or information they’re having trouble with. Even just share your smile. It’s  the little things that count. 

On this Friday, let us make a conscious effort to be better forces for Social good.

May the almighty accept our fellow elder as one of his. Aameen

Quote of the day #QOTD #1

It is undoubtedly amazing how your day can take direction by just reading ONE positive thought in the morning. I stand testament to that. 

I’ve decided to share a/the quote that inspired me for the day in hope that it may help / inspire somebody else out there 

Today’s quote 

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

~ The oh-so-amazing Maya Angelou. 

Gratitude is better than regret. Share a positive thought with a special or random person; be it that you adore their smile, are inspired by their work ethic or just thankful for all that they do.

If how a person feels is lasting, let’s try to make that lasting feeling a warm, fuzzy and happy one 😊

Let’s go (: 

A blessed day to you all.
