You Won't Regret It

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

What a great way to think about grace and love. And what a great idea. I am going to try this out.

The Family Stone is one of my comfort movies too. You aren't kidding, we have a lot in common.

Good quote.

Very inspiring - as it's often said we should live every day as if it's our last, its so important that this also extends to how we treat others - thanks for the reminder

I love Og Mandino quotes. You have chosen a good one.

I like this one, it keeps me focused on my writing.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
Enjoy your weekend. :)

Great quote! I try to remember that each day we need to live it to the fullest and treat those around us like we might never get to see them again:) Even the lady on the phone from customer service who tries her best to annoy me;)

Can you imagine if we all did this?

So true. I'll add, being nice to others changes you (not you - me)!

Stina Rose said...

If taken to heart, that advice would change the world! I think I'm going to implement it in my corner. What about the rest of you? Thanks for the challenging quote, Janna!

Nadine said...

I love this. I sometimes wonder how we'd live if we knew Jesus was returning today?
