How to Have Yourself a G’Day!


With photos featured from a past adventure in Australia, here are a few inspirational quotes to keep you smiling through the week!



“You don’t know what you get back until you give.” -Bill Clapp






“There are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents.  Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.” -Leo Buscaglia




Compassion“Everything affects Everything.” -Hannah Baker



Grow from the heart


“The place to improve the world is first in one’s own heart and head and hands, and then work outward from there.” -Robern M. Pirsig





A little light


“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.  There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.  You feel it, don’t you?” -Rumi


Inspire. Share. Love. Support. Believe. Smile.

The ripples we create

“There are those whose lives affect all others around them.  Quietly touching one heart, who in turn, touches another.  Reaching out to ends further then they would ever know.” -William Bradfield

Taking Shape

Just as water shapes the sand beneath it, we do the same for those around us.

It’s difficult to grasp the extent that an action of ours can have on the world.   We strive to inspire, share, love, support, believe, and even smile.  Like the ripples made by a stone dropped into the water, your positive (or negative) influence can have a lasting affect.  Not only on those you direct it to, but possibly those they connect with, and then who THEY come in contact with!  The ripples keep on going!

Perhaps the next time we think about sharing a positive or negative attitude with someone, possibly open ourselves up to the question of how we are making the people around us feel.  Will they feel happy about it?  Will they go home and smile about it?  Or will they become upset, nervous, unhappy, aggressive, or even angry.  And how will they decide to treat others around them because of our actions?

Am I am taking an over-dramatic view of this whole concept?  C’est possible.  Yet I think it’s safe to say that every single one of us has been at the receiving end of someone’s happy act of kindness AND someone’s release of anger or frustration.  Don’t know about you, but I enjoyed the whole ‘happy act of kindness’ quite a bit more!

You never know, your action may inspire others to do just as you have done.  Inspire, share, love, support, believe, and smile.
