The Joy Of… (2)

14 August 2011

If life is a wine glass... what do you fill yours with?

If life is a wine glass... what do you fill yours with?

…Being lovely. I’ve had a great week and it’s because I’ve offered time and energy to all sorts of people. I’ve cooked dinner for someone who needed a good chat, reviewed a report for someone who wanted to hone their argument and had a lovely breakfast meeting to say ‘thank you’ to a friend who has worked hard for me.

And I purchased three books from a charity shop (and overpaid for them) and then bought a Big Issue from a very polite seller in town.

It’s been a good week and making people smile has been worth the time. I’ve had lots of great conversations with lovely people, learned a few things and enjoyed myself.

And my to-do list is as long as ever, but life is like that. Sometimes we have to put others first, be helpful and offer loveliness into the world.

So, this week when someone asks for your help, or needs a boost, give them your time and freely share your skills. It doesn’t matter whether these people are at home or at work… putting loveliness into the world makes our life a rich and rewarding place to be.
