Monday Mantra

Monday Mantra: Unknown but Unforgotten

Good morning my dears!

This morning I want to share a quote I jotted down in my journal however-long ago. (Anyone else ever go fishing in their journals when post ideas are scarce?) Unfortunately, the author of this quote is a mystery–insomuch as my research has found. Regardless of its obscure origins, however, it made quite an impact on me and I am hoping it brings a similar effect to you:

“If you have the power to make someone happy, do it. The world needs more of that.”

Some of you have probably heard this referenced somewhere before. If so, while I apologize for the redundancy, I have to ask–

Did you take this to heart?

What are the things you could do today that could change someone’s life for the better?

Short and sweet, as I try to keep these Monday motivations ❤︎  In life, God calls us to show selfless love to those we know, those who dislike us, and those who are strangers–equally and without favoritism. I certainly don’t have this down yet, but the beautiful thing is that, the more we show love, the happier we feel, even if it’s not reciprocated. (At times, especially because it’s not reciprocated. There’s nothing like giving to someone you know can’t pay you back, all because you want to help.)

Think of it as a win-win: when you make someone happy, you feel happier. Try it out. Remember that you are beautiful and you are loved ❤︎

  1. What a beautiful quote, Jordan! ❤ Thank you for sharing it with us 🙂 Haha I've been there, scrounging through past inspiration to potentially motivate me to blog about it! Alright, back to the quote you highlighted: I usually find it hard to love others outside of my main social circle. However, the more confident I become, the easier it is for me to smile at strangers, do small acts of kindness, and be willing to love others despite their imperfections. (That's something the Lord will be working on me for a while yet – I have to learn to accept MY imperfections first before I can begin loving others in that same way!) You're in my prayers always, Jordan!
