Mother Teresa — Humility List

I swear, the older I get, the more I want to live by these words. 

15 things you can do every day to grow in the virtue of humility, as taught by the great saint, Mother Teresa. 

1. Speak as little as possible about yourself.

2. Keep busy with your own affairs and not those of others.

3. Avoid curiosity.

4. Do not interfere in the affairs of others.

5. Accept small irritations with good humor.

6. Do not dwell on the faults of others.

7. Accept censures even if unmerited.

8. Give in to the will of others.

9. Accept insults and injuries.

10. Accept contempt, being forgotten and disregarded.

11. Be courteous and delicate even when provoked by someone.

12. Do not seek to be admired and loved.

13. Do not protect yourself behind your own dignity.

14. Give in, in discussions, even when you are right.

15. Choose always the more difficult task.

Too Funny

Saw this post on Facebook and it was spot on for what I think now as I’m getting older.

Make it a great day. 

Green Chili Bacon Cheeseburger

Here is a picture of my Green Chili Bacon Cheeseburger with Grilled Onions from Chester’s Hamburgers in San Antonio. 

It’s a naked burger eith out the bun. It was really good and I haven’t had a burger in a long time. 

Chester’s is known for its great burger, loads of fries and good onions rings. 

If you’re ever in Sam Antonio, I highly recommend this place. 

Thought for the Day

Saw this and had to share it.

Make it a great day!

I love people.

People of all kinds, religions, backgrounds and color.  

I know no strangers, I’ll talk or listen to anyone.  I have no intentions of winning people over, trying to convince someone to like me. 

I talk, smile, hug and listen because I like it and you never know what a difference you can make by even a simple smile. It makes me feel good to make someone else feel good, appreciated, loved, cared for or just a simple smile in return.   

I don’t care what title, degree you do not have or degree you have, good people are good people. Just a thought for the day…

Be Patient

I saw this posted on Facebook and once again, it’s what I need to right now in my life.

How does He know what I need??!

Gut Feeling

I’ve had this feeling for the past couple of days. Not sure if it’s a feeling from something that happened in the past or something that is currently happening?

Wherever it is coming from, I need to figure it out and get this negative feeling out of my head. 

 

 

Three Kinds of Loves

I saw this and wanted to share it. 

I only wish I could find Three Loves. 

It’s been said that we really only fall in love with three people in our lifetime. 

Yet, it’s said that we need each of these loves for a different reason. 

Often our first is when we are young, high school even. It’s the idealistic love; the one that seems like the fairytales we are all read as children. 

It’s a love that looks right. 

The second is supposed to be our hard love; the one that teaches us lessons about who we are and how we often want or need to be loved.

Sometimes it’s unhealthy, unbalanced or narcissistic even. 

It’s the love that we wished was right.

And the third is the love we never see coming. The one that usually comes dressed as all wrong for us and that destroys any lingering ideals we clung to about what love is supposed to be. 

It’s the love that just feels right. 

Maybe we don’t all experience these loves in this lifetime; but perhaps that’s just because we aren’t ready to. 

Possibly maybe we need a whole lifetime to learn or maybe if we’re lucky it only takes a few years. 

And there may be those people who fall in love once and find it passionately lasts until their last breath. 

Someone once told me they are the lucky ones; and perhaps they are.

But I kinda think that those who make it to their third love are really the lucky ones.

They are the ones who are tired of having to try and whose broken hearts lay beating in front of them wondering if there is just something inherently wrong with how they love. 

But there’s not; it’s just a matter of if someone loves in the same way that they do or not. 

And maybe there’s something special about our first love, and something heartbreakingly unique about our second…but there’s also just something about our third.

The one we never see coming.

The one that actually lasts.

The one that shows us why it never worked out before. 

And it’s that possibility that makes trying again always worthwhile, because the truth is you never know when you’ll stumble into love.
