Many times on my blog I have given a recipe, poem, joke or anecdote for the day.
Lots of things have to be done every day, like washing, eating and sleeping.
Some things can be done once in a while like having a perm, highlights or washing the car, but many have to be done every day.
We can learn a lot from vitamins here, many of them cannot be stored in the body so we have to make sure we get some every day.
I have two quotes for the day from Maya Angelou (1928 - 2014), that are worth saying to yourself every day.
TRY TO BE A RAINBOW IN SOMEONE?S CLOUD
'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'
If you try and do the first quote you will hopefully make people feel good, feel glad they met you.
It's certainly true that you always remember people making you feel good about yourself, make you feel happy and serene. There's that wonderful feeling that you get when you're on your way to meet a friend for coffee, or a loved one is coming round to see you. The little happy man in your heart starts leaping up and down and you feel excited about seeing someone who you know will make you feel good.
What do you do though about the people that make you feel unhappy and hurt you? Well I think you have to try and forget it in spite of what the second quote says, you have to try and forget the hurt feelings or they will end up harming you.
My poem for the day is by Christina Rossetti 1830 - 1894, about not causing hurt
Hurt No Living Thing
Hurt no living thing;
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep.
And lastly two knock knock jokes for your laugh a day
Mikey is stuck in the keyhole.
Norma Lee who?
Norma Lee I let myself in but I've lost my key.
Why don't you find aspirins in the jungle'
Because the parrots eat 'em all.
