My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics
For the most part, I’m a cheerful person. I do my best to be positive, loving and caring. There are, however, days where I just don’t feel like being bothered. Those days don’t happen often because I am very much so a people person, but yesterday was one of those days.
I had spent most of the day running errands and out and about, all while posting photos to instagram. I really enjoy that app! And even though I was having somewhat of a good day, I was feeling a little off. I was and still am homesick. I want to see my family as well as my hunny.
Even when I’m feeling “anti-social”, sometimes it’s nice to receive a out-of-the-blue uplifting call or text to keep my spirits joyous. After, last nights little snag on twitter, I received a heartwarming text from a person I now consider to be true friend because only a true friend would recognize when a person is in need of uplifting words. So, this is a thank you to that friend for the touching words (see photo below).
You never know the kind of day someone is having. People should learn to choose their words wisely.
The person you’re putting down could be the person you need help from later. I’ve learned all those valuable lessons from my parents. They’ve helped many people who have migrated from the islands to America with their paperwork, job placement, applying to school, joining the military and even buying a home. Nine times out of ten, a family or friend has contacted either one of my parents for help. They never ask for anything in return, but it’s amazing how ungrateful people can be after being helped. I recognize some of my followers names because they are relatives of the people my parents have helped (some, the offspring or siblings) I won’t go out of my way to tell
any of those followers “Hey, my parents helped you and your family! Be grateful for being here in America!”. I’m not that kind of person. What goes around comes around. I truly believe that, and that has happened EVERY time. Moral of the story: be genuinely kind, because you never know who you’re going to need advice or help from in the future.
Who have you been nice to today? Are you careful with your words? In what ways have you caused a stranger to smile or laugh?
