The Power of Words and Heroes

“Words are the keys to the heart.” Chinese proverb

The Chinese proverb wasn’t far wrong in my opinion either. Do you realise how powerful your words are? I remember a poem we used to sing back at school that went along the lines of; “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Not quite sure where the poem came from, but one thing life has taught me is that, that’s a lie.

Our words are powerful, and the can either add value or detract it. So just as kind and important as it is to be a generous with our finance, time, and resources in our world today. It is equally important to be generous with our words. Our words count, and what we do with those words, or how we spend them matter too.

Unsung heroes are a group of students passionate about showing appreciation of those in the armed forces, serving our country on the front line every day.

When your thousands of miles away from your family, for long periods of time, and living in uncertainty on behalf of a country. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, or where you come from. A simple thank you to these men can make a huge difference in the days when reality hits, and things get tough.

In just nine days this campaign has reached over 1180 views, with only 131 people stopped to show their appreciation. Please support this cause, by taking 30 seconds of your time to register today.

Don’t forget the power of your words.

Log fires

Presents….?

For many, yes this is Christmas; but what about the rest? Those without their loved ones, those in less fortunate circumstances? Let’s spare a thought for them today, and if it’s within your power why not invite them to dinner, send a message reach out and share the festive spirit so many of us are blessed to have; but not everyone is fortunate to have this year: December 2011.

Being a success in life isn’t about how much you have, but rather how much you can give away, help others, to lend a helping hand. The gifts, ideas and skills you have will lend to better use when you put purpose on them, cause and effect.

We become successful when another life is touched, enriched and lifted because we did something of matter.

I extend this challenge not only to anyone reading this, but to myself.

Today I was taught another important lesson that not only does the gift make way for the giver, but it is impossible to out give a generous spirit.

Happy holidays everyone!
