Rise By Lifting Others January 27, 2021

Rise by lifting others.

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.

Sprinkle kindness around like confetti.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Up, up and away!

I like being UP better than being DOWN ~> the view is better!

Kate Crimmins - January 27, 2021

So is my disposition!

Everything looks better when I’m in an UP-beat mood. 😀

Snow is sprinkling our trees/lawns/sky and bushes with white powder right now. I’m trying to savor the gorgeous sight and not think about the icy mess afterwards. Thanks for reminding me that we must sprinkle blessings all around us, including to ourselves. Rise up to kindness and joy. xo

Snow is gorgeous . . . especially in snow globes! 😆 Enjoy the SNOW’S NOW now and deal with any messy aftermath later.

Being Kind is a win win. It picks us UP as it spreads smiles and joy to others. So much better than being unkind.

Interesting you mention snow globes. I’ve loved them since a child. Yes, that would be enough snow for me, But the snow does “shake things up” a bit around here, that’s for sure. I keep mumbling, spring spring, because when spring does arrive in it’s incredible glory, every year I remind myself what we had to go through to get this awe-inspiring beauty.

My favorite snow globe as a kid? A palm tree on a tiny island with a dolphin in the surrounding sea.

Spring is always such a welcome change of pace. Daffodils, forsythia, and hyacinth are my favorite harbingers.

Sprinkle kindness like confetti? I don’t know, who’s going to clean up the confetti? Just saying, a good idea in theory, but…

nrhatch - January 27, 2021

Cleaning up the confetti supports the theory that “no good deed goes unpunished.” 😯

Ally Bean - January 27, 2021

True dat.

Rise by lifting others. I love that title.

The balloon and basket full of people is beautiful. It’s not a hot air balloon, right? How does it work?

nrhatch - January 28, 2021

You’re right. It’s not a hot air balloon. It’s a tethered helium filled balloon:

“Custom-built for Disney by Paris-based company Aérophile S.A., the Aéro30 is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium. The balloon’s 19-foot-diameter basket holds up to 29 people, plus one Aérophile-certified pilot.”

I took that photo at Disney Springs in Orlando.

I concur!

There is so much truth in this encouragement, Nancy. Spread the word!

nrhatch - January 28, 2021

It’s hard not to feel good when we make someone else feel good. It’s an instant LIFT!

Love it!

nrhatch - January 28, 2021

Of course you do, JR. You are kind through and through.

Awh!! Thanks sweet Nancy! 💕 Have a great day! 😊
