Wined down Wednesday.
Whew, is it Friday yet?
Those are just a few terms/phrases I’ve often used for Wednesdays in my lingo, surprisingly I’ve never thought of “Wordy Wednesday”. Surprising because (according to S. Rad) I can be very wordy at times, somehow almost synchronizing with when he’s ready to leave and I’m still saying my goodbyes, or some other situation where he’s waiting on me to stop talking. Ha! I know this happens to others, right?! Is it just a husband and wife thing?? Thinking back though…I do recall my brother always telling me to hurry up, as if he was waiting for me, too? Must be a guy thing? Or is that one just a sibling thing? Who knows, I can’t barely figure myself out, no need to even attempt to figure them out!
So, back to being wordy, ha! Or perhaps I should change it to Waiting Wednesdays?!?
Anyhow, this post is inspired by a birthday card I recently received, and I absolutely could not pass the opportunity to share this awesome message with others. So, here it is:
Be good to yourself. There are some things everyone deserves – love, respect, time to recharge. Never settle for less.
Seek out your dreams. Start small. Take it as it comes. Even a butterfly has to inch along before getting its wings.
Listen to your heart. Trust your gut. If the way seems unclear, look within you.
Let your voice be heard. You have a story to tell and opinions that count. And a difference to make.
Stay curious. Wonder. Take every opportunity to learn. Knowledge is a gift. It will take you places.
Hold on to what’s important. Let worries go. No matter how you look at it, some things just don’t make sense. The way you choose to carry on is what really matters.
And when you make the list of what you want in life, make another list of what you’ve got. Be sure to start with all the things that make you a beautiful person. There are so many.
Most of all, remember you are loved. Always.
Thank you Hallmark for providing profound yet simple guidance. I rarely go in that store anymore, as Trader Joe’s has excellent prices on stellar greeting cards, but I do have family members that are Hallmark frequenters, so I’m often on the receiving end. And, honestly, they always deliver a heartfelt message. I still love receiving cards in the mail, there’s something special about it.
Do you enjoy receiving personal mail and greeting cards in the mail? What do written, loving words do for your heart and soul?
