So here is the situation – being kind and caring does NOT mean you are weak. It never means you will not fight back against miscreant types but it does mean you will be the person most likely to be remembered for helping other people feel good about their lives.
Chic is a good thing. Chic is style in all the ways you look, speak, act and communicate with people and all living things – in fact being chic is a feeling and an every day, every night experience!

My clipart design, my photo at 68 and my statement about kind, caring being Chic!
Yes it works — every morning when you wake up, stretch your body, take a deep breath and smile. Then do your thing — water, coffee, tidy up and definitely make your bed. And of course eat a healthy breakfast.
Many more things we each must do each and every day but the fact is if we start with a few simple tasks then all else needing our attention becomes easier.
Remember no matter where you are on any day, no matter the circumstances or situations you find yourself in or dealing with that day if you do something basic for you when waking up everything else becomes easier.
I know this is true and I live this way – have for decades and now at 68 continuing because it is even more important!
Simple and complex and necessary. Each of us every day, over and over again must liberate ourselves.
Liberate your mind – take back your time, give yourself permission to address the tasks, oppose those refusing to be fair and then only leave space in your mind for that which really matters to you.
Liberate your soul – take back the time and the effort you might have extended to people and things that do not allow your spirit to feel safe and free.
To be liberated does not mean ignoring issues or situations that are troubling but instead it means dealing with those things in a limited way and never using up all parts of your mind and soul that are meant for being healthy and happy!
Cliché—perhaps but no matter that because these three things really matter. These three things are a part of every person and are that which when remembered will help guide, comfort and sustain an individual.
The three are: Love, Life, World.
Love in all ways – for others, for ourselves, for nature and for every part of life is the key to being happpy to be alive no matter the circumstances being dealt with that day.
Life is a gift, it is THE MOST IMPORTANT gift. Life is always complex, often challenging but always worth having and always worth appreciating.
World is our home, the entire world our collective home. To recognize this fact is to feel both humble and grand for each of us as a resident of this world is granted the right to all it has to offer and no one should be allowed to deny any person their place in this world. It is up to each of us to protect that right for even our foes – never should one person be able to lessen another person’s place in this world!
So much to say … Alas suffice it to clearly state that good things can and do happen because of social media HOWEVER the cult and bandwagon scenarios can be at best be a waste of time, often include individuals only seeking their own self aggrandizement for nothing more than their rants and at worse can be dangerous!
Of course there are REALLY important issues that might benefit from the attention gathered through what I call “the bandwagon affect”. It is up to each of us to be cautious in what we decide is worthy of our effort, energy and time!
No problem here, not some Pollyanna type idea, only a reality long understood as the way to elevate one’s life.
Sounds great doesn’t it? Well it is and while a simple idea it is also complex. It is the same as most things in life, there are nuances to be dealt with – it is at the core this important truth, to REALLY succeed we each must continue to elevate other people’s lives.
Yes of course, caring about and for oneself is primary for only then can we be our best self and mindful of our own possibilities. Then we are able to do the same for those close to us, the people most important in our lives but also for others – even for strangers.
In the totality of who we are, who we want to be exist the path to accomplish all things. Value the simple things and embrace the extraordinary is one of my own life philosophies – it takes practice and is well worth the effort!
