Wisdom from Renee McClure

My pearls of wisdom are these: have faith, a sense of humor and do something completely random. God will always have your back if you just let Him. Don’t take everything so seriously. Bring levity to your life daily because it really is the best medicine.

Help a complete stranger if you can, because the blessings will come back to you tenfold and you can impact their life (as well as yours) in a positive way. Whether it’s a helpful hint, a smile in passing or giving a kid change at the checkout because Mom didn’t quite have enough in her purse, everyone can benefit from that one seemingly insignificant act.

It’s validation from another human being that you see them, that you care and they matter. We all do. We just don’t bother to acknowledge each other like we should. I try to make a concerted effort to give a hi-howdy-thank you whenever I can because it makes a difference, whether you see its effects or not. In other words, be random.

this may help too from Yogananda:

"Always try to see the good in people. By focusing on the good in others, you not only help them see the good in themselves, you also begin to establish goodness in yourself."

"Remember also that you always need the inspiration of better company to keep yourself constantly improving. Your outward good company is of paramount importance, as it influences your will and reason which, by repetitions of thought and action, form good habits."
