LWI: do small things with great love; UPDATE: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all

This week I’m channeling Mother Teresa and focusing on all the little things. Pay attention to all the little things life has given us and give thanks. Act with love and compassion whether that’s sharing a coffee with friends, working in the clean room, or even just getting on the subway. Every action is an opportunity to love the world and its creatures.

I woke up this morning in a bad mood. When I picked out the phrase of the week, the first phrase I picked out was “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Feeling grumpy, I thought, “NO I’m not going to do that this week.”

Well I met up with Char, Em, Nick, and Nick’s mom for a picnic this afternoon. I mentioned this little, um, happening this morning. Then I realized how hypocritical that was of me. So this week’s LWI phrase is if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything nice at all. (Taking ownership, as Char so kindly put it.) This week is focused on being a nice person. Inhale positivity, exhale negativity. Just exhale it silently.
