I believe absolutely in progress. The world is becoming a better place every day. However, there are some behaviors that we let go that I think we have to try hard to hold onto. Read on and see if you agree :
1 . Send thank you notes . written hand delivered by the post office . I tried harder to make sure I always do . People really appreciate it.
2 . shake hands. outside of the business world , people are not good at it . We’re big wings, so as not to shake a lot of hands , but when I get one of those sad, those soft , I wonder how depressed and disheartened must be that poor person .
3 . collect things , especially when it comes to children . When I was small, it had stickers , kids collected baseball cards or comic books. When my father was a boy , he had pinned beautiful specimens of insects. Collection teaches organization and responsibility. Today , the boys choose games that deal with evil.
4 . stand straight . It literally makes me physical pain to look at the way in which adolescents are worn today. My great-aunt was very tall for a woman when she was young , so she stretched out on purpose. She knew when she was in her 90 ‘ s , and I saw the results of all that slouching . The poor woman was bent .
5 . dinners . They are wonderful. Going out is fun, but there’s nothing like having friends over for dinner .
6 . Do It ‘ a great thing to do , if only for their digestion. Our lives are busy, and it’s hard to fit in … I know.
7 . They are family reunions . When I was a kid , we planned to larger ones , and were for that reason alone. Gathered in the summers just to have a family reunion . E ‘ was great fun.
8 . Read ! ‘s my favorite thing ! You are clearly reading right now , maybe you’ve read . Choose one of your friends who do not read and buy them a book .
9 . Spring clean . I really want to do this, and I’ve never really organized a day when the whole family spring – clean . Windows, hardwood floors, ceiling fan. Pulling off the stove and refrigerator. It may also be worthwhile to get some families together and take turns on the case . The boys could focus on power washing and lawn work .
10 . volunteer.
do not know many people who volunteer . It ‘ easy to donate to causes and a wonderful thing , I know. Giving your time, however , it is also very addictive and a lot more rewarding .
Be careful not to take too many projects .
11 . Call our mothers . You probably spend at least three hours a week on the phone with my mother … sometimes more. She is the only person that I am good at talking on the phone . If your mother, who is the person who takes that role in your life. I find that doing so is really good for me.
12 . . Yes, as adults . It may seem silly , but some of the most incredible moments I’ve had have been over brunch with good friends after a party or an event the night before. It ‘ a wonderful time to laugh together. Planning short trips with good friends for a couple of days is a wonderful idea , I think that because they have invented and holiday homes.
13 . Do a saucepan. Not just a casserole , but also a bit ‘ of soup or a plate. When a friend is sick or having a hard time , I am very relieved getting a homemade meal . I have some friends who run marathons , and I try to make a chocolate cake for all those who come to an end .
14 . say our prayers.
I do not think it has to do with religion. Everyone can pray , and I think it is good for us. It reminds us that we are a small part of the whole , and that we have a voice.
I’m not Catholic , but every time I see an emergency vehicle , and I say a prayer for the people inside .
15 . watch . We have such beautiful sky here in Florida . I’m always doing something different. I think there is an artist in heaven who spends all day up there just painted on . When was the last time you looked for shapes in the clouds?
16 . Board Games . I have a lot of male friends manly. They scoff and grumble when a game is pulled out, and then have a wonderful time, competitive and laugh their asses. Board games are fun !
17 . gift just because. I do not even know if they are still cards that say. just because. ” I can not remember the ‘ last time I took a small gift for a friend and I told them that I only bought because it reminded me of them .
18 . Go for the ice cream. This is for my grandmother. My husband and I have worked in good faith to take the kids for ice cream in his memory. It ‘s just a good thing to do .
19 . read aloud . Even when children grow up , even when they become adults , they still love to read . Reading aloud is an art. It is not an easy thing to be good at both. You should try it sometime. My husband and I used to take turns reading the chapters back and forth to each other .
20 . Take of a car. There are many hidden gems in the area where we live. There are so many charming little neighborhoods, many small places that we have not discovered . We have to go hunting for them.
I hope something you read here has inspired you . So that prompted me to get to work on some of these elements . I think it was worth it to write only for this reason.
