Day 19. Thinking Pink Thoughts Today

 
 
I'm in the throes of completing this month's issue of the newsletter I write for several Mary Kay directors in my area, so please forgive me if my mind is filled with many pink thoughts this week. 
 
The more I learn about the woman herself Mary Kay Ash the more I admire her for the vision she had for enriching women's lives, and the more I desire to catch some of that vision for myself. Here are a few of my favourite quotes by her. I hope they add some 'pink' inspiration for living your own life for others more beautifully today.

 


ON BEING KINDER...
"My goal is to live every day as if it were the holidays --
to be kinder, more gentle, more loving than ever before to everyone I meet.
If you will pledge with me to do this,
then we can indeed change this old world for the better."

***

ON CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION...
"Be careful not to confuse mere activity with action.
You can put in a lot of miles running in place --
but you will stop right where you started.
The secret is constructive action.
(Place) a value on your time and (learn) to balance
and budget your time.
Treat it as if it were gold, which it is."

***
 
ON TEAMWORK...
"Teamwork allows each person to be valued and
appreciated by others while contributing to the Company's success."

***

ON SHARING...
"We are the recipients of countless gifts from friends of the past.
We remember these friends with gratitude and try to
pass on to others something of what we have received."

***

ON HOW TO TREAT OTHERS...
"I have learned to imagine an invisible sign around each person's neck
that says, 'Make me feel important!'
I never cease to be amazed at how positively people react."

***

Wishing you a glimpses of heaven in unexpected places,
Brenda
