Consider being Considerate 8/5

I really like this word.

Considerate : (a) careful not to cause inconvenience or hurt to others (b) showing careful thought

This for me is an action word that demonstrates grace and kindness to the others…be it friend or stranger.

One day I was at a close friends house and we were sitting outside. I had put my hat on the ground and I asked her if she could pick it up for me; my back was unable to bend properly that day.

Well, I will never forget what happened next. She picked up my hat and before she handed it to me she brushed off any dirt that might have been on it.

It was a small gesture but it was very considerate.

If I am acting reckless or being selfish and self centered…..that energy is just swirling all around me and the others.

When I slow down..get kind and consider who and what are around me I am then able to engage more in the pleasant things life has to offer.

I think most of my life I was trying to matter and to be “considered”. But now I know I am just to be considerate and all else falls into place.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
