Inspiring thoughts

Some more, inspiring words from Rev. Dave Tomlinson that I came across today (from ‘Imagine’, 27th March 2011) – and before any of you roll your eyes at ‘religion’, what I find inspiring about these quotes (as with all the talks Dave gives) is that it’s not about being ‘religious’ – it’s about being a kind, considerate, contemplative human being…

“Let me suggest a few possible pauses that you might engage in over the next week…

>> Concentrate on giving your full attention to someone when you’re tempted to drift away mentally or even walk away.

>> Identify one thing that if you got done would make you feel better about yourself.

>> Decide about something you can do each day this week to make another person’s life a bit better or happier.

>> Think about something you can do perhaps during the rest of lent to alleviate the suffering of a stranger.

And finally…
>> Every night this week before you go to sleep, pause and think of one thing you did during the day that you are proud of or pleased with and give yourself a well done – and rest in peace.”
