Maggie’s Morning Thoughts

Just before Christmas, each and every work morning, the first thing I did at work after logging into the network and opening email, was to send out to my entire work team ( plus a few add-ons scattered throughout the building and across the city) an email with Maggie’s Morning Thoughts in the subject line.

“Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.” ~ Eileen Caddy

All this email contained was a positive and/or uplifting quote or image and quote.  The purpose was to reboot the way the people I work with approach each and every day in a small way.

Think about it.  How many have suffered through commuter traffic snarls to get there, or had a bickerfest with a grumpy non – morning – person child or partner before even getting out the door?

It cost me nothing.  And heavens – why NOT share?

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” ~ Booker T. Washington

I had been sending these for a week and a very very quiet colleague came p to me and told me she was printing these and pinning them up in her son’s room.

That touched me deeply.

When we reach out, we often don’t know how far these small gestures reach.  All it takes is a thought and then to follow through.  The key is the action that goes with the thought.

“It is never easy to keep reaching for dreams. Strength and courage can sometimes be lonely friends. but those who reach, walk in stardust.” ~ ANON

Can we change the world?  Yes.  I believe we can.  We start with ourself.  In changing ourself, this touches and impacts on the lives of everyone who comes in contact with us.  In turn that could touch on every life that touches every life… you get the picture.  The snowball effect.

  1. Sometimes those simple little things make all the difference in the word – and we never know. I too believe small things can make a huge difference. I also believe that if the thought to do something like that comes across my mind, then it is mine to do. I am responsible for the doing. 🙂

  2. I love this idea. Small things can make a bigger difference than we ever think, or so I have believed for years. It’s not always obvious, but that doesn’t make it less true. And you never know when that simple act of reaching out will be the important difference for someone.

  3. Thanks. Every small stone in the pool of life is worthwhile 🙂

  4. Lovely post. Absolutely agree with you. Our action , however small we feel it is, creates a ripple effect that we cannot see immediately. We truly can change the world. That is why spiritual teachers from around the world speak of the planetary Ascension that is taking place now. It’s attributable to what we did in the past . Blessed are those who are aware. 🙂
