3 Useful Phrases

10 November 2014

The world of social media is awash with endless sunsets, framed with happy words telling us to love more, save the trees and be kinder to waiters. Often I ignore the words and skip to the next Tweet, nimbly avoiding the piano playing cat as I do. However, recently my eye was caught by some neatly typed phrases, which were pinned up on the wall of a client’s office.

I liked the fact they were just typed, without needing any embellishment, which felt to me that they weren’t decoration – they were properly loved and shared and used.

Here they are…

We can’t help everybody and everybody can help somebody.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.

It will be alright in the end and if it’s not alright it’s not the end.

…that last one is my favourite because it gives people hope and without hope life can seem futile.

This week have a think about these words and what they trigger for you. You’re welcome to share with me your cherished phrases too…I may become a collector of heartfelt goodness.

Next week: When does success happen?
