Find Your Empowering Thought
Yesterday I was in southall park doing a charity fun run with disabled children. I had an absolutely amazing time. The children were so full of life and they enjoyed every minute as did I.
After we finished the run we decided to play some cricket and so we paired up and I had one of the young ones in a wheel chair and my job was to push them to get the runs and increase our score. We had so much fun and all of the children there were an enormous inspiriation for me.
You know how you get those moments though that alwasy stick in your mind and make you smile? Well yesterday there was this on child there, he was in a wheel chair was almost completely incapacitated. He had minimal use of his arms and so one of the helpers was holding the cricket bat in his hand with him. All I remember is seeing a huge smile on that childs face and it almost brought a tear to my eyes.
I could see how much fun he was having and how appreciative he was that there were people around him giving him so much love, support and encouragement.
But that smile has now burned and imprint into my memory banks. I will always remember the look on his face and anytime I do it creates and immense feeling of joy within me! Anytime I feel lost, hurt, down or upset I will always remember that image because for me, that image, creates within me, a feeling of not only joy and love and but inspires me to act!! Here is a young child who cannot do much and yet the most simple thing gives him overwhelming joy!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find your empowering thought. Find that extra special thought for you that “inspires you to act” and use that thought as a tool to give you that burst of energy to make it happen! This message will self destruct in 5…4…3…2…1 ((((((BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM)))))))
Oh, yes…I shall certainly undertake this mission. 🙂

Hi Prasanna, thanks for the comments and it never ceases to amaze me, the power of a childs smile!
Wonderful mission for all of us to think about. Empowering thoughts that lift us and motivate us through our triumphs and our heartbreaks. Thank you for another inspiring post, and I’m going to accept your mission too. It is a wonderful one!
Good on you Serenity!! 🙂
I’d love to hear about what empowering thoughts any of you do come up with and why that thought in particular means to you and the feeling it creates within you!
