So Monday I received a card from a student who previously went to the center I work at. The card was great, but the personal message was even better! The card basically said how awesome of a staff I was, how they’ll miss me, and how they were glad I was in position to meet them when I did. Now I’m not a mushy person at all, but the card almost got me (lol). I would have never expected a card from this youth, granted they were in a few of the clubs I taught, they played that nonchalant card very well =). It really just goes to show that you never really know the impact that you have on a person…
Everyday, all day, we interact with other people, never really understanding the influence we have in their lives…
That feeling of purpose that comes along with just being yourself and not expecting a thank you but receiving one anyway is amazing. This is why the concept of karma is so important.
Cause and effect
Putting out the energy you want returned to you
Reaping what you sow
Do to others as you would like them to do to you (Luke 6:31 NLT)
It all boils down to who you are at your core… it also helps if you’re the same person all the time. I had a professor in college who asked us to do an assignment. Basically what you had to do was ask 3 people from different aspects of your life (ex. 1 friend, 1 family member, 1 coworker) to list 5 traits that you have. The point was to see if you’re living a consistent lifestyle. What do you think people would say about you? Will it line up? This honestly was one of the most important assignments I’ve ever done… period… but back to my point…
There is always someone watching what you’re doing, learning from your actions, and sometimes your mistakes.
Continue to be a blessing in other people’s lives by being yourself and putting out good energy. I leave you with this…
Proverbs 26:27 NLT
If you set a trap for others,
you will get caught in it yourself.
If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
