Midweek Motivation

Happy Wednesday! If you are like me, you can sometimes fall into a midweek slump. This slump is composed of tiredness and stress. To overcome it, I recite inspirational quotes throughout the rest of the week. These affirmations give me the strength to press forward and stay strong. So, I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.

Walking in Another Person’s Shoes

walking-in-anothers-shoes

We hear the phrase all the time: “if only I could walk in another person’s shoes and see their perspective.” Most of the time, our answer is “why would I want to do that?” Yet, wouldn’t it be nice sometimes to walk in the shoes of someone else and understand their worries and thoughts?

Recently, I was working on a project with a colleague. We spent the afternoon together and acted like we normally did. Little did I know, five minutes before meeting me, she had been laid off from her full-time job. Later that same day, she told me what happened and said this afternoon wasn’t the right place to talk and did all that she could to hold in her emotions.

I completely understand a person not wanting to show their true emotions all the time; I do it almost every day. However, when situations like this occur, it is important to remember to always be kind and friendly to others. Because, after all, you never know what is happening in someone’s life. No one will ever get the chance to truly walk in another person’s shoes, but by being considerate, you just might help ease their burdens.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Respect. It’s a word with different meanings to each of us. Merriam Webster defines it as “to act in a way which shows that you are aware of (someone’s rights, wishes, etc.) and to treat or deal with (something that is good or valuable) in a proper way.” Everyday I strive to respect everything and everyone that I encounter.

Life has changed a lot within the past week. Debates have happened and discussions have occurred, but there is one thing that needs to become more common and that is respect. We don’t have to agree with each other, but we do need to respect each other.

There are numerous ways you can respect a person. Don’t criticize their opinions, don’t make negative comments, and don’t be rude. Respect can also be shown through simple actions, such as helping a person or doing something good for your community. Think about how you would want to be treated, then treat others the same way.

Respect also means to be considerate of those who came before you and those who will come after you. Remember those who gave their lives, made sacrifices, and just wanted what was best.

Respect-it’s a lot you can give a person with a lot you can get in turn. Just remember, we don’t have to agree on everything, we just need to respect each other in everything.
