Self Love Explained

By Xenatona on July 16, 2018 / 2,456 views

By Xenatona on July 16, 2018 / 2,456 views

True self-love is not selfish pleasure, but rather the origin of discipline and willpower. Self-love is not giving yourself everything you want, but rather giving yourself the things that are good for you. Spending the weekend eating pizza and watching movies can feel great, but that is not self-love. Self-love is discipline. It says, “You may not like this, but the future You will want to start...

A girl at work bought a bunch of those big Powerade bottles for the driver's at work when it was in the 90s with high humidity a few weeks ago. Some of the other girls made fun of her for wasting her money. She really is the sweetest person and on a budget. We have at least 2 UPS, 1 mail carrier, 1-2FedX and another profession specific delivery drivers dropping off and picking up...

Was at the grocery store a while ago and overheard a conversation between a young couple. They were trying to decide how much more they could spend this week. As I walked by, I could see new wedding bands and listened to her ask him "do we have enough to get this too?" His reply was "do you have enough gas in your car til Friday". I've never had a flashback so vivid, to 20+ years ago,...

This man helps customers load groceries in their car and doesn't work for the grocery store. His name is Johnny and he is wonderful. The lot has many stores in it and it's "his job" to go to them every day and help out. Anytime we see him at the Mexican restaurant, he eats with us. Although, they give him free food for his services. We love him and want his company. He likes it...

Just Listen!

After long hours of waiting for my friend at the bus station, I got tired and was tempted to just leave and plan another meeting. As I was still deciding, there came a man selling culture shoes and started showing them off to me so as I could buy or something, I just smiled and said thank you. I don't know if it was the smile or what but the young-man stepped closer and stood beside me and started talking...

Miracles Happen Every Day

By Judith Maduhu on July 08, 2018 / 3,237 views

By Judith Maduhu on July 08, 2018 / 3,237 views

I don't know how you'll call this encounter but personally it's my small miracle. Today was a report submission day at our University, so everyone was to submit their report to the school coordinator. The coordinator is known to be a very strict man with a questionable personality (cautious about small things, harsh and incorrigible). So when a person went to collect the report, he would cross...

I said no three times at the SPCA because I’m not a cat person. She sat and purred in my lap as the lady said "How? She won't let anyone hold her!". I knew I wanted her then. Three days later my girlfriend said "she got adopted today". When I asked by who, she said "us!".  Welcome home,...

You ordered large fruit punches all around. The kids were so happy. You asked about our adobo pizza, said the kids were interested, I told you you wouldn't regret it. The little one asked for a mini adobo fried rice omelette. You said whatever she wants. I asked if anyone wanted anything else. The big kid wanted the lechon sisig cheese fries. You said before anything else, what was my total at....

By Sipley Whackerman on July 01, 2018 / 2,431 views

I was biking home from school one day and the ice cream truck is where it normally is and I always go and get an ice cream, but I was worried that something was wrong when I saw a huge line of people waiting in line and the man wasn't serving anyone. I went and had a closer look and I saw that the man had fainted inside of the van. I didn't know what to do but I remembered my first aid training so I...

A Simple Act Of Kindness

By Estella on June 28, 2018 / 2,982 views

Late this evening, I got a ride to the local grocery store. After loading up my cart and checking out, my phone dies right as I'm about to confirm my uber. No portable charger on me (none sold in the grocery store) , no friends nearby, I don't know the way back (and even if I did, walking alone, at night, as a female, in Cleveland, is not a good idea). I of course had a panic attack. So this post is a...

What an incredible day at the beach! Not because it was the most fabulous weather. Not because we were with fabulous friends. No, it was the best day because a group of Men and a young boys took the time to notice a little boy with Different abilities, waving his arms in the air saying, my turn, me, me as the football was being tossed around over his head. Honestly, my first thought was oh man they are playing...

There is so much hate in the world that I have to share this amazing experience my family had today. As a transracial adoptive family we get lots of looks and comments both good and bad. Well today we were in the middle of nowhere aka Four Corners when a couple told us how beautiful our family was. This couple happened to be African-American and they continued to talk about...

Adjustments

By Sonia Kaur on June 25, 2018 / 1,809 views

By Sonia Kaur on June 25, 2018 / 1,809 views

The word 'adjustment' seems very weird but please believe me adjustment is the key of happiness. Always make your point, just think about yourself, being selfish etc. Being selfish is good for a moment, but being selfish means making distance with everybody, with friends, family. Being selfish means hurting others unnecessary. Adjustments means you truly love a person or your family. Non...

Hitchhiking In New Zealand

By A Friend on June 25, 2018 / 1,603 views

I was hitchhiking in New Zealand. I obviously wanted to get from one city to another but didn't quite make it. Went with 3 different cars and only went like 50 minutes worth of driving in total (2 1/2 hour drive in total). After the the third car let me out I went to the main road leading out of town and held up my sign again. It started raining and after about 15 minutes a car pulled up and I already...
