Do you love secrets?
I’m thinking that secretly you do.
Who doesn’t love being an insider and knowing and hearing the secrets behind someone’s success, recipes, DIY projects, relationships, or just about anything?
There is no exercise better for the heart
than reaching down and lifting people up.
~ John Holmes
This quote passed by my screen and I immediately loved it.
And then I immediately tweaked it…
There is no better exercise for the human heart
than laying self down to lift others up.
This is my secret.
Available as a 5×7 art print below.
Now I confess that I don’t do it well, or all the time. Or maybe even some of the time.
But, when I do it. My heart changes. My mind changes. My day changes. My world changes.
Laying self down?
Laying self down is hard to do. We’re pretty protective of ourselves. Yes?
I’m not saying I do it all the time. But, when I do, I have discovered that loving and encouraging others is the best thing for my heart. And for the hearts of others too. But, I can’t do it well until I lay self down.
Have you had a bad day? Week? Month? Year?
Seriously….I could say that I have had all of those. But…I also know the antidote to all that negativity is….laying self down.
How often do we see others who need to be lifted up and we turn and put on those reflective glasses that only allow us to see ourselves?
The next time you’re in “one of those spots,” wearing the reflective glasses, take off the glasses and lay self down.
If we don’t lay self down, our worries and cares will overwhelm us. We’ll be too weak to lift anyone…let alone ourselves.
That’s my secret.
