BITS ‘N’ PIECES

Don’t just count your blessings

Be the blessing other people count on and you’ll be blessed. The opportunities are endless. For example:

  • Give someone your time
  • Listen to someone talk
  • Feed someone by making a meal or paying for one or simply sharing it
  • Pray for someone whether they are aware or not

Talk to yourself as if you would talk to…

  • A stranger – “Would you like me to help you with that?”
  • A child – “It’s ok to be sad. I am here for you. I won’t leave you alone.”
  • Your best friend – “You rock! I am so proud of you. You deserve the best.”
  • Your favourite treat – “You are worth every single dollar I invest in you.”
  • The sun – “You light up my day and warm my soul.”
  • Your pet – “You are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
  • You deserve the same love and understanding that you feel others do.
