Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. - Matthew 5: 15-16

Comments20/02/2017 #21 Devesh Bhatt#18 dont worry. I was almost convinced not a good person.
My worldview could not change when i was an accessory for exploitation...i had to change my world so to speak :)
On the other hand, assuming people to be unfair and still having the belief to do good is very relieving. Then the few good people i meet are a bonus.
I just had to assume unfairness but not ponder upon the details.
I still have to figure out how to define it better but it works.
But at the end of the day its all about self belief in my case.20/02/2017 #18 Paul 🐝 Kearley#10 @Devesh Bhatt you packed a lot into your comment. One part troubles me though was your quote that you are not a good person. I would certainly suggest you change that worldview, as it will have ramifications on all of the relationships you create over your lifetime. Yes, people can be unfair, that's their problem. If we do our best with the time we are given, then you will be a success.19/02/2017 #14 debasish majumderi did not come to this lovely, wonderful world out of my own wish, if though could be in fifteen seconds, how will i express my wish altogether about the last fifteen seconds, despite i cannot envisage even an iota of the situation of my last fifteen seconds! intriguing question indeed and i wonder how it trigger to peoples mind too! however, lovely joke @Paul 🐝 Kearley! you have a unique sense of humor! enjoyed read. thank you for such unique share too.19/02/2017 #13 Anonymous@Paul Kearley If at some time in the future one of your children is posting about you "The motivation for this post was my dad. He passed away on Valentines day, and I miss him terribly, but he goes with me wherever I go, whispering advice in my ear and guiding me down the right road. " then you need say nothing in your 15 seconds. Your legacy will speak for itself.19/02/2017 #11 Robert CormackWhat's interesting here, @Paul Kearley, is it's about what we leave behind. I'm more worried about how we change things while still living. If I'm not around, it seems I'm missing my most profound thoughts and words (not that I have any, but still, it's nice to know I could have one or two).19/02/2017 #10 Devesh BhattTrust yourself and do good when times are easy.
For those older than me who live during tough times but havent shifted gears durig better times.
For friends who dont have the endurance like those before us and lose self belief easily.
Its also seeded in my regret of overthinking the good i could have done but thought about bad precedents rather than enquiring facts.
Something i told myself repeatedly over a long time, i was almost convinced that im no good and i am not a good person.
What i believe now, people are unfair and i cannot let that rub off on me.18/02/2017 #9 Ken Boddie15 seconds, Paul? Not long enough to assemble a worthy address to the nation or to pen a prophetic poem, assuming that we had the inclination for either. I'd fall back on a couple of my favourite quotes:
"O wad some Power the giftie gie us.
To see oursels as ithers see us!"
"Make new friends, but remember the old,
One is silvern, the other is gold!"17/02/2017 #7 Ella de JongThank you @Paul 🐝 Kearley. I'm sorry for your loss! I'm happy for you that your father is always, always around when you need him.
My 15 seconds would be something like .. "Please, try to make someone smile by genuine attention and talking about their small successes. By doing this you can make your life meaningful. It's empowering for the both of you and everyone (young, old, brave and insecure) of us can try this, every single day!"17/02/2017 #4 Lori Mullins JohnsonIn 2013 there was a simple study done by a palliative care nurse. She started asking all of her patients, during their final days, if they had any regrets. The top ten list was filled with mostly "I should have's" , I should have pursued my dreams, I should have said I love you, I should have made more time for my family and friends, I should have learned earlier that happiness is a choice, etc... so think of your "should have's" now, and go do them.

- 19/02/2017he new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is being guarded by the U.S. Marshals Service, the Washington Post reported on Friday.
The unusual step comes after a group of protesters prevented DeVos from entering a public middle school in Washington, D.C., last week after a contentious battle in the Senate over her confirmation.
Typically, the Education secretary would be protected by a team of civil servants, not law enforcement personnel.
Marshals Service spokesperson Lynzey Donahue told the Post that the last Cabinet position to be protected by the marshals was the head of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. That post, however, has not been a Cabinet-level position since 2009.
Donahue did not specify how many marshals were allocated for the protection of DeVos or for how long the security protocol will last.
The Senate earlier this month confirmed DeVos after Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote for her. Two Republican senators joined all Democrats and Independents in opposing her, creating a 50-50 tie before Pence stepped in.
It was the first time ever that a vice president was needed to break a tie on a Cabinet confirmation. Democrats held an all-night protest before DeVos's confirmation vote, and progressive groups led campaigns to call senators to urge them to oppose her.

And like you, 30 was my dreaded milestone, although many, many years before you. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment here!18/02/2017 #11 AnonymousHappy 100 Bday to your mom!!! I bet she has stories we all would love!!! (Wish I had, had the foresight to ask my grandparents for their stories). 30 was my dreaded milestone and what spurred me into life long learning and student loans that just wont go away! hee hee. The only one in my circle and family to take nerd and geek it out. LOL
Proud to be a Spunky Old Broad (in my own mind anyway! LOL) Great post Susan!!18/02/2017 #9 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanAww, I love this post, @Susan Rooks. I remember turning 16 - sweet sixteen wasn't me, though. I didn't get into trouble but I was a bratty had to be in the "in-crowd" teenager. Turning 30 was major for me. I got a divorce, had surgery and my father passed away when I was in the hospital. Two years later, I moved to South Florida. After that, I had many life changing events but I managed to keep moving forward. Happy 100th Birthday Marcia Rooks!16/02/2017 #2 Sara Jacobovici"Happy 100th birthday, Marcia Rooks!" And many more!!! Great post @Susan Rooks. I appreciate your sentiments and insights. I also agree with the following: "All of those milestones make us who we are today. Each set us on a path we couldn't have seen clearly then, even if we had mapped it out, debated the pros and cons of action plans,or created a timeline of dates for accomplishments." Onward and upward!

Comments16/02/2017 #3 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanYou make excellent points, Max. I especially like these two statements: "If one sees oneself as a teacher first one has refused to learn the master lesson of teaching. One who is a master of teaching is always the student first, yet not too humble to think one has nothing to teach." Being corrected is one of the steps in moving forward.
