Pondering My Personal Tickler File

 

Pondering My Personal Tickler File I think it's great to know there is a virtual warehouse of good things that is available and can be found in our personal tickler file.  Ready for us to find-as-needed(and just because) as a remembrance of the many good things in our world. 

 

A recent comment on one of my posts by  Lise Howe made it clear to me that I need to pay attention to those subtle and not-so-subtle reminders about the good and kindness that we see each and every day.  It needn't be some elaborate system.  Simple mental memos.  Observing.  Being there and being here.   Things that are not necessarily out-of-the-ordinary but kindness and generosity as part of everyday life. 

 

In her comment Lise made mention of her daughter who is "wonderfully empathetic" and a "gift" to her friends and family. Her comment made me ponder. 

 

I am sure we each can cite at least one person who is like that in our own life.  What if that person was you?  Or me.  Anyone of us. What can you or I do to make such an impact?  For others.  Ourselves.  This is purely a rhetorical question.  There is absolutely no need to answer. 

 

Something to be aware.  Put it in your personal tickler file.  Bring it out often to serve as a reminder of the good things in life.  Just some pondering...

Michael,

This is someting we focus on every day, with each other, and when we step out of our home. We had an actual box that was know as the tickler file.  Now it resides on our computers.  Kindness, mindfulness all require practice as they come from the heart.  A

I think today we are HAMMERED with negative. Everyone who disagrees with us is EVIL..not just different. I watched a young man who made it his personal purpose to clean up parts of Baltimore. On the news I saw reporters talk about how he was doing it only for the publicity....sad. Good people do exist and often do things simply because they will make others feel better.

Alexandra Ron and Alexandra Seigel - regular practice in this endeavor brings excellent results and a better life.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - it's sad to think good things are not recognized simply for the sake of the betterment of others.

Hi Michael, thanks for the reminders. It's truly a lot easier to be grateful than to ponder over yesterday's "wrongs wrought on us".

Being aware and taking the time to think is absolutely necessary in our fast-paced world. Hiking, yoga and meditation time gives me that space I need.

Hi Michael- just this morning the lady who was standing behind me in the check out line was someone I'd put in my personal tickler file. I came home and told Larry about it. From time to time, I recall acts of kindness by others and it brings a smile to my face. Do it enough and you'll find yourself wanting to do more for others.

Your title caught my eye for sure. Not sure I ever heard of a tickler file before but I can say people that show kindness and true caring tickle my fancy.

Kathy Streib - I appreciate experiencing such moments.  It's a good thing when they are a part of everyday life.  

Myrl Jeffcoat - I'd call that quite fortunate.  Thank you for the feature in the OFC group.   

Sharon Lee - if kindness and genorosity is a part of your modus operandi, there is no need for a tickler file to remember.  

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - it sounds as if this has become automatic.  Good for you.

Morning Michael.

While I was wondering if I knew any people who had that trait.  It came to me the vast majority of people do.  Have a great Sunday

I didn't even have to think about it...the name popped right in my head. It is true that this person's kindness has made me a kinder and more generous person. He is a shining example and has made me want to be more like him.

Love the title, Michael! 

As always, your ponderings speak to me and this time is no different. 

I have been wracking my brain to come up with something spectacular to do for 7 friends who whisked me away last week for my birthday. They knew I needed to recharge better than I did and they treated me like a queen for an entire week. I have NO idea how to repay them but, am 100% aware just how fortunate I am to have such amazing, 'out-of-the-ordinary' friends in life.
