Respect the boundaries of others the same way you expect them to respect yours. We have have a personal boundary formation that we expect others to conform to and when someone crosses it that brings an invitation for negative energy.
We desire respect from other, in fact we should demand it but it’s not all one-sided because we should give the same respect we request to others. The most solid and loving relationships contain abundant amount of mutual respect. On the other side of the fence, if someone in your life doesn’t show respect you can demand it, if they refuse it might be time for an evaluation of the relationship because you DESERVE respect.
Never judge anyone for who and what they are. Sure this can be a hard one sometimes when you see someone who is clearly doing something you feel is wrong or living life in a way they could be doing better, but don’t forget we are all here for different Lessons so try you best to not judge anyone, even when you don’t understand or like their actions or thoughts. If you have any deep-rooted hidden prejudices against anyone or any group of people lurking in your psyche now is the time to dispel them because there is no room for them in 2019.
If you see someone struggle, help them! If you don’t do anything to help them then you have no right to judge or look down on anyone. Even when you feel it’s a lost cause you can still do something. It’s like that homeless guy who panhandles that you pass each day on your way to work and you don’t want to give him any money because you know he will go buy drugs or alcohol.. well..it’s not for you to judge and besides, you never know.. you cannot just assume.. if that is a big concern, make him a sandwich instead of giving him money so you will know at least he ate today.
Give Yourself Fully
If you are committing to an energetic connection with someone, give yourself fully, freely, & exclusively at that time. Make sure that you dedicate that time and energy to them and only them. We all know someone who calls and as soon as you get on the phone they turn around and start talking to someone in their presence and you wonder why did you even call me?? yeah.. don’t be that person. When you give someone your time, give it to them fully.
Also, if you are conversating in a group of people, pay attention to everyone, especially the “quiet one“. Odds are someone in the group may have something to say and they get “over-talked” by the group so they sit quietly and listen. If there is a quiet person within your group, see if they have something to say because sometimes they have the best answers but they get overlooked in the crowd because they don’t speak up for themselves.
Encourage Personal Growth
Encourage everyone you encounter to be their best and to do the right thing. Let them know you have confidence in them and think they can do anything they set their mind to. Don’t dwell on past mistakes or expect the worst out of anyone, including yourself. If you see someone making a mistake encourage them to do better. Encourage people to do things they think they can’t and they will always remember you.
Give Credit Where It’s Due
Anytime you see someone who has accomplished something, no matter how big or small, let them know you notice it! It feels so good when others notice and compliment your efforts so try to be the one who gives praise, it will becherished and remembered I promise.
Random acts of kindness
This is a big one and people are really catching on. in 2018 I went to fast food restaurants around 15 times and 3 of those times the person ahead of me paid for my order, that’s damn good odds! Kindness is really becoming popular. When you get gas, give a few bucks to chip in on the next persons gas, pay for someone’s dinner, order a pizza for a stranger… the sky is the limit! Get creative and see how many ways you can help someone.
Keep Your Space Clean
Cleanliness is next to Godliness. You’ve heard that one before no doubt but do you get the real meaning? You feel so much better in a clean environment free of clutter and unwanted items. It’s less restrictive, less depressing. and makes you feel more energetic and productive to be in a clean environment. Give away what you don’t want or need to someone who would value and appreciate it. Homeless shelters are a great place to donate. Also, keeping your environment clean also includes the Earth. Get the kids together and take a walk down the road and pick up trash. You will feel so much pride at what you are doing and you will teach the kids a valuable lesson.
When you appreciate what you have you are wealthy in every possible way. Don’t take anything for granted because you never know when you might lose it. This includes Loved Ones, Material Possessions, and Beliefs. Life itself should always be appreciated no matter how hard it can be sometimes.
Try to follow this guideline of 10 simple acts of kindness and you will be a much better person and as a reward you will also be much happier. Life is hard for all of us.. rich, poor, tall, short, heavy, thin, healthy, disabled, hardworking, lazy.. it doesn’t matter.. we all have our problems and issues and we all need a kind word now and then. Strive to be that person who can always make someone else feel better and you will be rewarded tenfold.
