I've learned that people will forget...

Good morning all..... it's 5:39 am and my resident owl seems to be up early this morning hooting away. I feel like he and I have this special connection, he's always on time to wake me in the morning and in return I appreciate his punctuality and dependability. I would like to start this mornings reflection with the quote “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.” Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928). This quote invokes me to think about how everything that has happen in the past was merely a minuit moment in the past that no one shall remember. I am not sure about you but I have a tendency to glorify the bad things in the past, this quote reminds me that everything that happen then no longer matters now. What matters now is how I utilize the present moment. Today I think we should all look deep in ourselves, and figure out how we can pass our happiness on to someone else. Do you know someone in your life who is down and could use some uplifting words? Take a moment today and let that person know WHY they are special, little words have big effects on peoples hearts. Hope everyone has a great morning and a better afternoon!
