Being considerate means you are polite and caring, you are thinking of other people’s feelings and treating them with decency. Are you considerate? Yes or possibly no, either way, it doesn’t matter you are simply you.
When my mother in law passed away, there were so many things I wanted to say to her. We had a private conversation but I wanted it to be longer. She was incredibly bright and I had a lot to learn. I thought I had more time to ask certain questions, but God knew what was best.
I came to a very interesting conclusion. No one ever says this, but dead people are the most inconsiderate people on this planet. They just leave, sometimes without saying good-bye. So how should we handle dead people? We should do our best to love and accept people for who they are while they are alive, yes, that’s my final answer. Love people for who they are and not what we think they should be.
People are here today, gone tomorrow. Just imagine if we all knew our death date, what would you do? How would you prepare? Would you take that vacation you always thought about? Would you call some people and tell them what you really think/ Would you buy some things that you always wanted? What exactly would you do?
We don’t know our death date, that’s why our birthday is so important and should be celebrated. People don’t call to tell you they are going to die on Monday at 2pm, life doesn’t prepare us for the time of death. When the heart stops beating that means your time is up and we have to accept that as a fact.
Love is the best gift you can give others and yourself. Check out my poem called Love. Treasure your existence and make it count, be the reason someone smiles or has an awesome day. Have a mind that is open to endless possibilities. Focus your energy on the good in the world even if you are bombarded with the bad. Lastly, forgive yourself for any past transgression and seek the spirit that will take you to another level. The Spirit you seek is real. It will make you have an appreciation that you never experienced before.
I believe in laws of attraction. I have been very blessed to attract good things and good people in my life. I celebrated my birthday recently. I asked for no gifts, instead, I asked for time. I spent time with my family and friends, I spent the time just saying thank you for their continuous support and love throughout my life. My parents are no longer together, but I wanted to spend some time with both so we had lunch. It was one of the greatest experience of my life. Just sitting and watching two people reminisce about the good times and the hardships of life. I told them how much I love them and how grateful I am for my life. They were beaming with joy, so proud of themselves and they had every right to be.
I decided at that moment that I will never wait to say something kind to someone. I thank my mother in law for that life lesson. Being considerate is a good thing. Take a moment to make someone smile today.
