Words Of Encouragement Quotes As Life Lessons

“Count your garden by the flowers, Never by the leaves that fall.
Count your days by golden hours, Don’t remember clouds at all . . .
Count your nights by stars, not shadows,
Count your life with smiles, not tears.
And all throughout your lifetime, Count your age by friends, not years.”
– Anon.

The is one of the many great words of encouragement quotes which I have kept in my old dogeared scrapbook, long before the advent of personal computers for home users.

“Every wall is a door.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

One life lessons which I have learned is know how to encourage people with words of comfort and affirmation; to make someone feel valued and appreciated. A gentle pat on the shoulder or a slight reassuring squeeze on the hand can really re-enforce your words of encouragement.

The late Walt Disney said that there are three kinds of people in the world today. There are “well-poisoners”, who discourage you and stomp your creativity and tell you what can’t do. Then there are “lawn-movers,” people who are well-intentioned but self-absorbed; they tend to their own needs, mow their own lawns, and never leave their yards  to help another person. Finally there are “life-enhancers”, people who reach out to enrich the lives of others, to lift them up and inspire them. We need life-enhancers, and we need to surround ourselves with life-enhancers.
